|dabolt55||2" BDS, no BL or MML, and no Transfer case drop. All is fine on my 32's.....|

When you say "add a few whashers between the skid and frame will smooth it out. " you mean the TC skid plate correct? like if you were doing a TC drop.

|zaskar14||I read that when go over 2" lift you need to adjust or replce the track bar because your differential will shift. That is one of the reasons I want to stay at 2" lift. This Jeep will be my DD so I can not get to crazy. I think I will go with the 2"BB drive it and see what happens.|

I'd go with the jks 1.25 inch body lift and a brown dog 1" rubber motor mount lift.
NO TCASE DROP
NO DEATH WOBBLE
This will leave the stock suspension geometry and leave you with a good ride. Your center of gravity will also be lower than the guys running a 2" spring lift.
On a side note, you can get a high clearance skid if funds allow.

Old Man Emu (OME) or Zone/BDS. Get a new steering stabilizer too.

|Steeljag||Any thoughts of going with a quality 2" suspension lift ?|

|n00g7||You can look in my profile to see 2" BB w/ the BL (OME kit) on 31's. Looks fine, but I'll be getting 33's.|

|Helmsy||I wouldn't buy the MML and BL until you get you BB on and drive it to find any vibrations. I have a 2.5 in. BB and I didn't need an TC drop or MML but every Jeep is different.|

|homebrwd||What trackbar problems would those fix?|
|04-11-2013 12:29 PM|
|zaskar14||How about a 1" BL and MML to avoid any track bar problems?|
|04-11-2013 08:21 AM|
|homebrwd||You shouldn't need a TC drop with a 2in BB. If you go with a BL and MML though it should look fine. Just do some searching for 31s and 3in of lift to get an idea.|

I did a 2" BB with 31's. didn't need a tc drop. Looks great like it sits, no vibrations.

|UnlimitedLJ04||#2 will look fine.|

2" BB, 31" Tires Advise
I am a new member and first I would like to thank all for all your posts. This is a great forum with a lot of information which is a lot of help for all since we share at least one interest - JEEP's.
Just purchase my first Jeep, a 2002 TJ, 5 speed, all stock. I will pickup the TJ in a couple of days, can not wait. Presently it has Canyon wheels 15 X 8 and 30" All Terrain Goodyear Wranglers. I would like to do a 2" BB and 31 X 10.5 X 15 BFG KM2 using the same OEM wheels. This TJ has a Dana 30 front and 44 rear with a 3.73 ratio.
Here are some of the options that I am considering:
1. I know that if a install a 2" BB I also would have to do a TC drop or MML, I think the MML is preferable is this correct?
If I do a MML do I have to do a 1" BL also?
2. 2" BB and 1" BL with a MML - will this be too much for 31 tires (tires will look small)?
When you do a BL will this affect the shifter mechanism?
What do you recommend?
Your input and advise will be appreciated
