Replacing Body Lift....

OK, Im sure there is a post for this...but Im a newb...

I am in the process of buying my first jeep I've found an awesome one with low miles, no rust, its the one...The only drawback I have with it is that the guy just put a 3in body lift on it and 33's...I love the 33's...but I'm not much a fan of the things that can happen with a 3" BL... any suggestions on the most cost effective ways to get rid of the BL and still keep the 33's?

Gonna need a suspension lift of 3" to 3.5" to clear 33's. I also dont like body lifts and they just arent the right way to lift a jeep.

Cut the BL in half and send me the other half 1.25 to 1.5 inch BL is fine but you might have probs flexing with those 33's. but it should work until you get a suspension lift of some sorts.

BTW welcome to the forum!

Hah, I like lilyeller's idea of cutting your BL in half. Just 1.5" of lift won't be enough to fully clear the 33's, so I would look into 2" coil spacers as well if you're on a budget. Only 2" of suspension lift should lessen your chances of driveline issues, and combined with your 1+" BL, you should clear the 33's pretty well until you can afford a full suspension lift and everything else that goes with it. I've heard some people install a 2" BB and not even change out the shocks - not saying it's recommended, but you probably could. If you don't wheel often, this would be a good budget minded setup to clear the 33's.
