MoA yep.. 2'' bb and 1'' bl is the cheapest way..

however acos (jks adjustable spacers) and a bl would be a nice lift if you had 420 bucks to spend on the acos.. you can adjust your lift by 1/8th inch from 1.25-3.5 inches of lift

Yeah, what it boils down is a 3" body lift s a bad idea, spend a little more, do a most suspension lift, MAYBE a 1" body lift later if you need it to clear big tires, etc.. but that 3" BL just screams Mall Poser and is likely to get you hurt, either by rolling your Jeep or getting your a$$ kicked when you tell somebody you have more lift than them and show them your rig!

mrbigjeep 2" BB (budget boost...2" coil spacers that go over the coil springs) or a 2" spring lift (new coils) with a 1" BL...same as the link you posted but it only lifts the body 1"...which is much better.

GrnTJ Absolutley not! Haha. Dont ever go anything over 2" of body lift, and thats pushing it in my book. As MoA said, the JKS 1.25" bl is a great way to go if you need a little extra height but do a 2" suspension lift as well. Even a budget boost will clear some bigger tires for ya.

MoA x3 at most a 2'' bl.. try the jks 1.25'' tho.. sits nice

tobycat1 Thats a very large body lift. In my opinion don't get it. Find a 3" suspension lift, or get a 2" suspension and 1" Body lift combination.
