^^^ A hint.

Here's a link on how to do it: Project-JK.com - Jeep JK Wrangler Resource » Jeep JK Wrangler Steer Stop Adjustment

rics1997 Body lifts are not that great on a JK, at least more then 1". As stated, a budget lift or leveling kit will get you up enough for 33"s. A Teraflex leveling kit with front swaybar links is only $130 and is fine for 33's.

kjeeper10 If its just rubbing at full turn, you can add washers to the steering stops.

Also what backspacing do your wheels have. A JK can run a 33" tire.

Body lifts

Look into A spacer lift or a budget boost.
Cost wise around $200

MacCleev I apologize for the typo, 33"

Help out a newbie!

I am relatively new to the jeep world. I do a little off roading here and there but am looking to get serious this summer. I am currently driving an unlifted 2007 2 door wrangler, with 31' goodyears. There is a bit of rub when i fully turn . also, when on the trails i have bottomed out quite a bit in the more technical areas.
Therefore, to the point, i am thinking about getting a lift kit, or possibly just a body lift. As a university student you can imagine im short on money so a pretty 6"er is kinnnnda out of the question. any imput/links would be greatly appreciated.
