|jdhallissey||nothin wrong with them like jerry said cut them down a little bit and see if you like it then. This weekend you should come on out and have fun at the badlands.|

1" body lifts can be a good thing when you only need a tad more tire clearance. They don't raise the COG (center of gravity) as much as a suspension lift does and it's certainly easier to install a 1" BL than to add an additional 1" to a suspension lift height.
That said, I'd never go with more than 1" for a body lift. If I had a 2" BL, I'd probably take the spacers out and cut them down by an inch.

I've got a 1" BL and it's barely noticeable....allows me to have 35's with 4.5" suspension lift, clears the lifted transfer case and the eventual lifted gas tank (when gas tank skid plate is installed). There are numerous add-ons that actually 'require' a minimum 1" BL.
2" is probably noticeable...but not obscene like the 3" BLs...
The primary question is - do you need the BL? i.e. to clear your tires during complete suspension travel? And do you like it?

|Giancarlo||body lifts just look bad.. dont give really any performance gains.. and in some cases they are even dangerous.. take em out..|

|jwm1986||Another thing to consider, IMO, is if you ever do Up armor type stuff to gain more clearance, most of those kits I found need a body lift, but only a 1" for most...|

|jpdocdave||i don't like them, if it were mine, i'd take it out. but its just personal preference.|

If everything with your jeep works fine why mess with it leave it alone. It really all depends on what your going to be doing with the jeep why go spend all that money on a 6" long arm kit if its just going to be a highway queen, but if your a serious off-roader then go get the 6" and take the body lift out.

Body lift or no body lift??
I have a 2006 Jeep Wrangler, bought it last week. It has a 2 inch body lift and a 4 inch suspension lift. I am considering taking the body lift out....Any pros or cons? I have heard people talk how the body lifts are no good and that I should take the body lift out and suspension lift out and replace it with a 6 inch suspension lift. There is a bumper that I want to put on my Jeep and just don't think it would look right with that body lift. I need all the help I can get with these decisions. Thanks.
