I hope to find out what problems accompany the 3.5" body lift.. and whether I ought to address that problem first... I will need tires pretty soon, I need a top, and I need to correct the body lift.. probably expensive to take off and to replace... am I right?)

In your case, take care of the immediate needs first (tires & top), then worry about taking the BL down to 1"-1.25" and get some good 2"-3" springs".

You are correct but I read his post to mean he wants a new suspension lift.

If you are removing the existing lift, I would do 2" BDS Springs with a 1.25" BL and 33" Duratracs.

02Prove Add the 1.25" body lift and 1" motor mount lift to what you have and go get your 33s

I am the victim of a bad idea... from the Prior Owner..

the sahara I am ending up with has a 3.5" body lift and 33" x 12.5" -15's on it since I got it.. it does not rub with what I put it through so far.

lapis_blue If your trying to save money just get a body lift. I like my Rubicon express 3.5 super flex lift. But it will cost some $$$. BFG's are good tires to run

Jerry Bransford I was about to give you a recommendation for a "best" suspension per your subject title but then you added "not too expensive" inside the post itself.... best and not too expensive are mutually exclusive. Best would be Savvy's and Currie's but not too expensive leaves them out and gets you down into the Skyjacker category. What is your budget for a suspension lift?
