advice for tj tummy tuck

Looking at giving my 05jeep a tummy tuck.. after reading about it. Should i go with a body lift first. Then start the tummy tuck? Who has done this? I have a 4" lift.. should i go with 1" or 2" body? Whats the best tummy tuck kit?

Be aware with all the parts it's going to cost over $1000 although you probably know this already. It's a hard pill to swallow but the performance you get is well worth it.

The order I completed my TT over a few months. 1" body lift (no need for a 2"), SYE kit and driveshaft, rear upper control arms, UCF ultra high clearance skid.

If you already have a 4" lift you may need a novak cable shifter too.

Nice, not sure what kit you plan on using but make sure the uppers are adjustable. Also depending on what transfer case you have you can do a lo-pro tranny mount and skip the BL all together. I wish I would have gone that route personally.

UCF is awesome, I would highly recommend their skid. It's taken a beating !
