I just don't have any money to begin with, I feel your pain. Wrangler Forums is almost a curse in this sense.

Tummy Tuck = belly up

Its adding a new high clearance bellypan in place of the stock bellypan. Usually constists of a 1" MML ( Motor Mount Lift), 1-1.25" BL ( Body Lift) lopro tcase mount and new skid. Gives you at least 2" more clearance if not more, depending on the belly up skid you go with


Have fun in Australia! My buddy is there right now visiting his daughter in Brisbane.

How much does the whole shibang usually cost if you do the work yourself??

If you do it right, about $1K for what you need if you are starting from scratch...

No problem, tndz, the info is useful to me too.

Jrussblues, your LJ looks sweet. I wish I got one when I had the chance. But that is the look I'm going for. Plus with all the wheeling I have done including rocks I've never felt I needed to be hanging high up in the air. Now water and mud is a different story. But all the trails around my area have some good off camber stuff with some rocks and mud thrown in for good measure.

If anyone has some more info on the tummy tucks keep adding it.

With the adj upper arms, are they really that necessary? I understand the reason for keeping the pinion and driveshaft angle as close to stock as possible. My question is that if most people run 4" lifts without adj uppers, would the tt with 2" spacers really require it? Or only if u have driveshaft vibes?
