Small Lift Question...

Alright, here's the situation. I have a '98 sitting on 30'' BFG A-T's. The tires are close to brand new, and I'm not looking to buy new ones any time soon. Believe me, I would if I could though.

The Jeep has no lift (stock). I'm looking for an inch or two of more clearance from the ground, but I'm definitely not looking to make the Jeep look goofy sitting up higher on "small" tires.

I don't know much about lifts , and I'm wondering if the experts on here could tell me what would be a good idea in terms of a lift for my situation.

Any help if much appreciated.

Search around for a decent budget boost. Usually just spacers and new shocks.

install some 1-2" spring spacer and if you want some longer shocks.

Rubicon Express makes one for $250 including spacers and shocks. Skyjacker makes one for $250 and one for $280, only difference is the shocks that come with it. If you have basic handtools and a floor jack and jack stands you can do this kit in about 2-3 hours.

I went with a Skyjacker 2" Spring Lift that comes with shocks and bump stops for $260 from Quadratec. I went with it because it was the most economical lift I could get, for now, and the ease of installation. I love the lift, after a little tightening of the front end and a realignment! It fits my 32" all terrains and 33" mudders, with no rubbing. heres the link so you can compare with others... 2" Standard Lift Kits for '97-'06 Jeep Wrangler - Quadratec
