Looking for profile pics

I'm looking for a good profile pic of any jeep running a 1" body lift (w/ a 2.5" SL would be nice). I'm concerned about about the gap it's going to leave and/or about the look of the gap guards. Just wondering how bad the gap is going to be on the front, back, sides? Also, Baja Claws or Toyo Mud Countries?... Cast your vote here.

you cant tell from a 1" lift at all, dont worry, i ahve a 2" and the only palce you can see it is the gap between the rar bumper and the body, but if you get a new rear bumper then you wont be able to tell as much at all

Darker jeeps will hide the body lift very well, as will a tire carrier, which blocks that gap under the tailgate nicely.

I have the JKS 1.25" BL with an OME lift and unless you know where to look, you really don't even see it.

Smeghead i dont think u've got a BL. Look at the pucks from the back (one on each corner) There are regular pucks that are all bulging out. Those are stock. There is a metal washer on top that looks like a little cup on top of the stock rubber pucks. BL pucks go on top of that cup and under the body.

The only place where u can see that i've got 2" bl is the back. There is a 2" gap on top of my rear bumper to the body. A tire carrier will take care of that though.

if it is only one inch or so it is just the factory body bushings.. dont want the tub bolted directly to the frame without rubber isolators. if those bushings were not there the ride would be quite harsh.

I don't seem to have any profile shots of my Jeep for some reason.

The closest I do have is this "action/poser" shot. This does show the gap from a body lift in it's worst light. Here the wheel is drooped and you can see the gap easily between the frame and the body. This is a JKS 1 1/4 inch BL and an OME 2 1/2 inch lift with 33s.

Is it objectionable? Not to me. If it lets me stuff the 33s without rubbing and without a higher lift, I think it's a good choice for a mildly modded Jeep.
