Lift kits

Ok. So I have a 97 5 speed manual wrangler. I have 32" tires but the rub. I'm looking to stop that running and while I'm at it get a good lift.

To save about 100 bucks I was think about getting a 2" suspension lift THEN adding a 1.25" body lift. I just want to know if this is a good idea or not. Any response will be great thank you

A lot of people do that! Seems to work great.

I just put 2" coil spacers on and it made a big difference in the look and ride. Be prepared to possibly change your shocks though. Mine bounces like a beast now so that's next for me.

I have 32" in combination with 2" suspension and 1.25" body lift. Properly bumpstopped you will have no problems and it will perform well.
