Well, the Jeep sits level with 2 inch BB spacers in the rear, so I'd say about 2 1/4 inches, with a winch on the front bumper. Seems to be a softer ride than with BB spacers in the front (in a good way), I'm pleased, pretty good mod for 25 bux.

Yea, no doubt,
I wish I would have thought about that before I put in the 2.5 BB
Would have saved a lot of money that way.

I put some pics up in the "What I did to my TJ Today" thread.

Might still be worth your while, since you'd likely get about the same lift height, but better flex than with the spacer lift. If necessary, you could always add a little .75 inch spacer to level things out, they're not expensive on E-Bay or whatever.

Hey guys...I've got a question. I'm looking at google maps and looking at the area, and was wondering who has been down the dirt road behind target? I've heard about it and so I decided to look it up and I see it follows powerlines. Aren't most of those roads "do not trespass"? If not maybe thats something we can hit up next weekend?

The trails behind target are flat in the woods and not much room to ride. The main strip fills up with water after a LOT of rain. So it's prob dry now and it's only good enough for a quick run thru if u are in the area.

Also, there are no "no trespassing" signs around. A cop has seen me in there and waited, but who can follow a jeep? Plus that was during a hurricane

I'm still down to do some wheeling / meet / whatever, just a pity there's not much to choose from legal trail-wise around here.

I did stop by Uwharrie on my way to and from Thanksgiving with the family, that really spoiled me!

I'm down, just say when, hope its warm though. Hate cleaning jeep when it's cold out !
And it's a little to big for the bathtub ! Lol
Hope to hit uwharrie sometime this spring, want to install winch first though.
Even if it's just a cheap one for now,

X2 that !
There is the spot in Hempstead been a couple times. It's deep as hell getting in, but fun as hell also.
Haven't seen it all. Some of it is to deep to go alone.
Don't think it's legal but people go all the time. Big spot to kill a few hours. I have a 2 inch lift and 33's. the last time I went the water was on the hood. Lol but I made it. Lol. Somehow.

I just got a bb lift on ebay made by supreme suspension. The spacers are made from a material called Delrin it supposed to be stronger than polyurethane. I also have body armor side rails and smittybuilt bumper on the way.
