I have a question...

So i have a 1990 Jeep Wrangler YJ 4.2L with a few mods

I have a question about the 2" Body Lift, and the 2" Suspension Lift.
Is this ok, or is it extremely dangerous? I just don't want to go off-road and it tears in part on the first bump...

Look at the rear drive shaft angle from the t case to the rear axle is the angle down very extreme!

Take a pic and show us?

its safe on the road if you have your track and sway bars still connected. as far as going off road...its good to have a suspension lift because you will gain ground clearance but the body lift is pointless and runs the risk of tipping the jeep over. but its good to have a body lift so you dont rub the tires against the body and fenders. so its really your choice, depending on what you want to do with it. any kind of body lift or suspension can be bad for the jeep, but if you keep up with the jeep and inspect it on the regular, I'm sure you have nothing to worry about.

Stay with a 1" body lift anymore is a waist my preference. You can get a good 2.5" lift kit you will be good on 31s.

Any more on the air takes a little more work and money
89 2.5 TBI, 4" RC lift, 1" Booms, SYE, Adams Driveshafts front and rear, Ford 8.8 with 4:88s, BFG 33X12.50X15, and a ton of other stuff.

It has 33s. I think 2" and 33s are seriously the max for me. It rides great, so i'll just leave it for now. Took it off road and it ran really well.

Thanks for the answers everyone!
