Good man. I was afraid there wouldn't be one of those in here!

BIG JON You can make or buy a receiver skid plate hitch cover,or a short ball mount with a fused ball if you have to leave it on all the time. I am going to make a skid plate to protect the hitch.

joe002 Take off your receiver when wheeling?

Here are my thoughts:
1. Buy a 1 or 2 inch frame lift. Obviously this does not help lift my receiver.
2. Add some suspension spacers and lift the front and back 1-2 inches.
3. Buy an inch bigger tires - mine are low and I'm about in the market for new.

Any thoughts? Figure I may just get bigger wheels and a frame lift.

Is a frame lift better or would a suspension lift be better?
Not only do frame lifts look pretty horrible on JK's, they will mess up your shifting if you're in a manual.

Better to go with spacers, or a spacer/tire combo. Though tires will only raise your Jeep about 1/2" for each inch increase in tire circumference.

How far down does your hitch receiver hang, anyway? Must be kinda like bull balls...
