Picture Request: TJ W/ Lifts 1-3 inches.

Hey guys,

Looking at doing a lift. The advertising pics don't do it for me.
I am doing the lift for function and look. The Jeep will be a daily driver with trail rides when I can.
I have 31in BFG AT on now. I was thinking the 2.5 lift would be perfect for me as I don't have the $ for bigger tires.

So please post your Jeep pics with "suspension" lifts between 1-3inches.

Also if you can post:
Brand
Cost
likes/dislikes.

Thanks!!!!

2.5" RC, no complaints about the lift, not the 1st RC lift I've ever ran either. Tires are 32x9.5x15 Bias TSL's. They actually measure 32.75"

In my opinion,I would not go bigger than a 2" lift..maybe 2.5"..on a jeep with 31's. I seen a couple with a 3" and larger with 31's and in just does not look right. btw i'm in the same boat as you, I just picked up a jeep a couple months ago. the first thing I did was put 31" duratracks on it. It is going to be a daily driver with some light offroading. I will either be doing a 2" ome lift,or a 2" bds lift or some combination of that. but hey its your jeep!

Well it is complicated

2" BDS coils infront - XJ coils to compensate for winch and bumper with JK Unlimited Sahara shocks.
2" spacers at the rear with Zone Nitro shocks.

Looks good, details on the lift?

I'm still trying to decide between Zone, RC or Rubicon Express. Each option is just a little bit different, but right now I'm leaning towards the Rough Country because it includes shocks and coils. RE and Zone are both spacer lifts with shocks.

I literally just installed it like a month ago and just havent had the chance to switch them out. Will either go OME 2.5 for put the stockers back on with the 2" BB that was on..

I wish I had some details to share with you! The lift was on the Jeep when I bought it almost 2 years ago. It's not a budget boost(BB), there are no spacers front or rear. It just has different springs & shocks with no part numbers or brand names anywhere. I'm guessing 2.5" because it looks like more than 2". I don't think it's 3", because it still has the factory slip yoke drive shaft & I don't have any vibes at any speed(up to 80 mph at least)

That is 35's and 3'' of lift. Plenty of room for driving around town. But zero room for even speed bumps.

Not sure the lift, but 31's...Like you thinking of going bigger on the tires and higher on the lift!
