hey guys, i have a 95yj 2.5l. I was looking to get a lift kit, and i was thinking about getting a 2in body lift with a 2.5in lift from RC, i only have 30x9.5x15s right now, but i was looking for some opinoins on what i should do? and how a 2in BL, and 2.5in lift would look on 30s. If you have any suggestions on something else i should do please let me know.

4 inch lift first, then save and regear and then bigger tires is a sound plan.

I put a 4 inch RC lift with 33x12.5 on my 94YJ a couple of years ago. Looks great, but drives like crap on the roads. I don't really have any problems offroad though.

I am hoping to regear mine in the comming weeks. I would recomend not putting the bigger tires on until you have the money to regear. Looking back I wished I had done it all at once, but I didn't know what I was doing and no one really suggested anything when I got my lift.

I have heard bad things about body lifts, and I have been told by numerous people to just stick with the lifts.
