and BTW- great looking jeep!
Taller body lifts create more stress on the sheet metal (through body roll) around the mounts and will cause the metal to tear and the body bushing to punch through the floor. I don't recommend going over 2" on a body lift.

makes sense- I currently have 31's on mine but plan on doing a 2 inch body lift to get a little more clearance. Not to mention- mine is not going to be used for offroad- only highway.

Yes they are. I snapped one of the bolts off and had to replace the threaded piece inside. I just had to give you crap for the sarcasm.
