With a BB all you need are the spacers and shocks. Every Jeep has been different and at 2" or so a TC drop is not likely but a couple washers if necessary for vibrations is no big deal.

|Sasquatchewan||My son is on a quest for better gas mileage so he removed his 35" nitto mud grapplers & put some 2011 Mojave wheels now he has to much lift|

My plan is to do this right, one time, and not have to worry about it.

|Berend||I have an 01 sahara with 31's on the rubicon wheels from a few years back. It came with a similar 2" body lift. What is the reasoning that makes taking a jeep with spacers off reading a bad idea?|

|Mulvihill64||Check out the bds 2" lift. But I have the Tera bb and have had no problems. But honestly just order the cheapest bb you can off eBay because a rubber spacer is a rubber spacer no matter the brand|

[QUOTE=BTW, are those 18's?[/QUOTE]
Yes, they're 18" Sahara wheels from a 2013 JK.
Part of me wants to do the budget boost for the few times that I hit the trails and the other half of me wants to do the BDS 2" w/ Bilstein 5100's.
I'm still torn...I'm going to think long and hard about this one...

Most are...not thrilled in the long run with a BB. Many experienced jeepers will suggest you save up for a quality lift.
If it rides like rocks, you won't want to drive it.
My 2 cents.

|beaureed445||That escalated quickly.....only about a week between "I know most of you think I need a lift, and I probably do. But this baby is a mall-crawler for now. Once I decide to offroad, I'll throw a budget boost on her" and "Alright dammit, its time for a lift. I'm heavily leaning towards the 2" Teraflex Budget Boost kit." Sounds like me.|

I have Jk rubi rims and tires on my 01 sport! looked much the same. I put on a JKS 1.25 inch body lift and a 1 inch motor mount.
very cheap. very affective.
Im putting on my OME lift soon!
and I can vouch for OME shocks. buddy of mine has some on his stock tj. WOW! really really nice quality shocks.
great lookin rig by the way!
|05-06-2013 06:22 PM|
I think the wheels look really good on your Jeep! When I did my budget boost on my prior TJ, I went with shocks that were 2 inches longer to accommodate the boost. Seemed to improve the ride, but what do I know? The old shocks were beyond wore out.
BTW, are those 18's?

Alright dammit, its time for a lift. I'm heavily leaning towards the 2" Teraflex Budget Boost kit. Teraflex 001341200 - TeraFlex 2" Budget Boost Lift Kit without Shocks for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ & Unlimited - Quadratec
Do I need to do anything else? T-Case drop? Anything? I just want to make sure.
The TJ is 10 years old, with roughly 33K miles. If I need new shocks, should I just do them while I do the budget boost? If so, what shocks do you recommend? Again, im not much of an off-roader, but I would like some quality shocks. I'll probably take it out to a few beginner trails this summer. Nothing extreme.

'13 JK wheels on '03 TJ Sahara
So it's finally top-down weather in Michigan! I decided to Plasti Dip my new wheels before I installed them. I also dipped the headlight bezels.
The wheels/tires are take offs from a '13 JK Sahara so I installed Spidertrax wheel adapters to make them work.
I know most of you think I need a lift, and I probably do. But this baby is a mall-crawler for now. Once I decide to offroad, I'll throw a budget boost on her.
