What's the Best way to add 2" to a 3" body lift

What's up,
My 1997 Jeep Wrangler already has a 3 inch body lift and I want to add 2 more inches to the lift. What is the Best, Safe, and Affordable way to this? Currently have 33's on it. Thanks for the help

A Budget Boost kit would be the most affordable I think, but most people are gonna recommend that you remove the 3" BL.

1st - what is ur purpose for the extra 2". What are u gonna be doing?

I'm in the same opinion as the previous poster -- remove the body lift and pay round $500-$800 for a 4" susp lift. You can prob sneak 35s on it, especially if u get flat fenders.

Yeah. I've heard that before. I bought it with the 3" BL and I was looking into adding onto the BL. Thanks

There is not a "best, safe, affordable" way to add 2" to a 3" body lift. The taller a body lift...the worst and more unsafe it will be.

Basically I want to add 2" because I like the way it looks, but I don't want to make it unsafe (my kids would be riding in it too)

3" BL is already way too much. DON'T "add to it". Remove it, and install a suspension lift, and if you need to, a 1" body lift is OK.

Swap the 3" Body lift for a 1.25" Body lift.

Add a 2" budget boost spring spacer lift with bumpstop extensions.

Good enough for 33's.

Then dont even think about adding to the already ridiculous and unsafe 3" body lift.

For one itll be unsafe, two itll look like ass and three itll look like ass.

For the sake of all things holy, take that BL off, install a 1" and get a 2" BB and enjoy what you have until you can afford quality suspension parts and not endangering you, others on the road and your kids.
