An inch of body lift helps facilitate easy cleaning after a day in the dirt, and does not affect driveline or steering angles. Dont forget to never seize the bolts when you put them back on.
Start soaking every nut and bolt on the frame now with PB blaster or such to give yourself a helping hand when the wrench time comes. My 87 seemed to fight me every turn of the wrench.

i wouldn't mess with a body lift.
but a suspension lift will probably improve the ride with the new parts as jack said

Check the frame for rust, before buying it.
The area around the steering box, & the rear frame rails are the usual suspects.
Body mounts can be replaced, (ask me how, before turning any bolts) but the frame should be sound.

|anmllvr720||ok thanks someone had said that to me and i def. wanted a 2nd opinion.|

a lift isnt going to cause problems, the miles haven't already caused
like worn ball joints, Ujoints and such...

Is it to late to Lift??
I am buying a 1987 wrangler with 168,000 miles, do you think its to late to lift her without causing more problems?
