Question How to hide frame?

I just recently put on a 3 inch body lift on my 2003 Tj. The only problem is the frame is exposed and you can see alot of the under-body. Any suggestions about hiding the frame and under-body?

A 3" BL is to much according to opinions on this forum.

Unfortunately this is why most of us choose not to go with a 3" body lift.... They can be unsightly. As well as unstable.

Easiest way to hide the frame... remove 3" bodylift. Install 2" coil spacer lift and 1.25" body lift. Voila! Frame rehidden!

Exactly what sentenced said...remove the 3" body lift, replace it with a 1" body lift and then put a 2" spacer lift in.

It's is the widely expressed opinion on most forums that 3" is too much.
1.25 is the max you should ever need.

Otherwise, paint everything that shows with a nice coat of black and keep it clean.

Yes.. As long as they are not plastic.. Polyurethane is ok.. If plastic, remove them, insert them in the garbage. Get the above posted supplies.. I had one like yurs come into my work and it was indeed very unsightly.. Not tryin to offend ya.

I realize that it does not look its best. I wanted to fit some 33s on my Tj and i guess i got a little excited and went the easy way out. I think if the lift is polyurethane im gonna cut it in half so it will be a 1.5" lift then throw on a 2" spring spacer.

Sounds like a much better plan.
