How High 2 Lift My TJ?

Hey guys, newbie here. I hate to ask a question that's probably been answered here a hundred times, but I didn't find an answer in a search.

I have a 2002 TJ and I'd like to lift it as much as possible without having to mess with the driveshafts or transfer-case. How high can I go?

Thanks

Yup. 2-2.5" is usually the most you can go before things start getting more involved and more expensive.

My Daystar 1.75" BB just arrived yesterday. I found a pretty good deal and couldn't resist. I'm going to see how it works out and afterwards might go with new 2" coil springs. I too didn't want to mess with driveline vibes and a TC drop. I also didn't want too much of a lift with only 31" MTZ tires. Right now I'm doing research on which shocks to get. It seems like the OME Nitrocharger are the way to go, but they're are rather pricey. Good luck with your choice!

do a little looking . I just saw a classified which among other thigs was 4,1.75" spacers that was free if some one wanted them . spacers don't need to be new , put your money in good shocks , do a budget motor mount ( JKS and Rough Country sell them ) lift to help drive ine out .
