Pucks???

So a few months ago when I was looking for a wrangler I came across something that mentioned using puck to lift the jeep? Can someone give me the 411 on this?

Pucks are a cheap way to add some suspension lift to a TJ. They are spacers that go on top of the coil springs. Usually around 2-2.25". Budget Boost (or BB) is another name for them. Since you have to remove the springs to install them, they are just as much work to install as a spring lift. Actually more, because you have to remove the bumpstop cups to get them on. Spring lifts are better as you get more spring travel. But a lot of folks that do not do any hardcore off roading are happy with budget boosts/pucks to be able to fit larger tires.

A 2" BB might not be perfect for a serious rock crawler or competition rig but it is perfectly fine for most people. I do some pretty rough trails with mine and it performs excellent. The TJ has excellent articulation even in stock form which helps quite a bit. I would like a 2" spring lift though even though I have never had a problem with my BB.
