Taking off lift kit??

I just found out that my Jeep has a 2'' body lift with a 2'' lift on the struts/shocks for a total of 4''. I am attempting to downgrade to 31'' tires from my 35''. in my opinion, 31's with a 4'' lift would look terrible. How would I remove the body lift? Has anyone done this before? Thanks!

you can go to 4wd.com or quadratec.com to get a set of body mounts to bring it back to normal.

x2 to what others have said. Get some replacement poly body mounts and lose the body lift, keeping the budget boost.

Anyone have a direct link to where I can get these? I want to get this body lift off asap but cannot find the oem hardware anywhere. Also, is there a write up on doing this? How hard is it, can I do it myself? Thanks!

here is a link, this kit does not come with the nuts and bolts. just lookup body bushings on either site

I disagree,
Go buy a 1" body lift. Install that in place of your 2". Then you can run a 33x10.50 tire.
When you buy the new BL you get all the necessary hardware in an inexpensive package.
