I bet the suspension never rubbed because it won't flex enough to let anything rub with the body sitting 3" higher.
You're probably right. That and how much articulation or flex can you get without unhooking the sway bars? With that being said, flex for me is different than flex for someone who has suspension upgrades & quick disconnects, etc. Combine that with the BL and you get no rubs with 33's on 10" rims. Actually, I'm not the biggest fan of body lifts. Both of my Jeeps had them when I bought them. I bought them to be daily drivers so right now that works for me. If I were to build a crawler or trail rig, then no BL.


TnDz TJ....ok I gotta admit, climbing a 36" wall is pretty bada$$. Geat lookin' rig too. No, not running disconnects. All stock except BL, rims & tires.

Bigdog21,

You would be very surprised at what disconnects do for your suspension off-road. You should try it, but be careful.... you may rub.... and I'm not pickin on ya.... I don't want you to damage your Jeep.

New from Ocean County, NJ. I'm running 31s with a 2.5 Rough Country suspension lift. Probably going to get a 2" BL when my 31s are shot and replace them with 35s.

This is my first jeep. Waited until the kids were teenagers. I think she has 9 inches of lift, if I did my math right. She is SOA with I think Waggy front springs and a 1 in. Body lift. I have spent the last 6 months fixing the PO's fixes. The 360 V8 had to be rewired and the Carb had to be completely reworked. Put in a High Steer system. Thanks to help from folks on this forum and others. She is slowly coming together.

I've got a 98 with a 2.5 bl

It's not bad but eventually I'll put a 4 inch suspension!

But those are old pictures. New frame, new "bumper" = you won't have a clue the body is higher up off the frame than stock. Too many distractions to focus on that.


And that's just focusing on aesthetics, not the much more important function. For anyone who thinks that a 1" body lift looks bad, perhaps you should broaden your horizons a tad.

I Like how you say "Small Body Lifts" actually do our Tj's some Good !!!
Now After seeing yours and all of the others I really want to do it...
I just am a lil worried about the Fan Shroud part of it and anything to do w/Transfer case or Motor Mounts...
Is the Job Easy ?? Or Kinda Tricky ??? I watched the Rokmen you tube..
But Still I dont Know...Yikes !!

Also...I Kinda Like the Savvy cuz they r Molded or the Jks...
for one reason or another..

I run a Tera belly up. It the transfer case skid. They were also called shovels on 03 to 06 models. You may be able to see how low my factory hangs in pic 1 and pic 2 is after I installed my belly up. It raises the transfer case about 2.5", with my 3.5" lift on I have the break over angle of a 6" lift.
