My plan is to do this right, one time, and not have to worry about it.
BB are fine particularly if you are not really concerned with off road (though it will be fine)

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.

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?

BOJIs TJ [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...

Lutzkanin 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.
05-06-2013 08:14 PM
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.

Lutzkanin 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 05:22 PM
ky-homelite 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?
05-06-2013 04:29 PM
BOJIs TJ 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.

Thanks everyone!

'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.
