Can't figure out how to multi quote....but....
Maybe I'll try some wheel spacers in the interim until I decide on a lift. This is a second vehicle buy will be on the highway most of the time. I was shocked the first time I felt the tire rub with the 30s....I'll probably try the washer truck for the short term as well but don't wanna lose any of the already wide turning radius.

|speedyrev||I don't understand why 30's are rubbing. More of a backspacing issue than suspension?|

|DarthLEGO||I have the 3" Zone Off Road kit that I am very happy with. Not into serious off-roading, on a budget and it is my DD. No SYE or Brake line issues due to the longer LJ frame. And my 33's fit very nicely.|

Trust me unless you want to go larger at some point you will be very happy with this combination.

|BadSweet||Just read that a couple of LJ owners on anoyher site run BDS 2" spring with bilstein 5100s front and rear and are happy with the ride. Considering all the good marks bilstein gets in the jeep community, I may try this....just don't want to do this twice. Anyone have any experience with this setup??|

I suggest getting 2" Coils and combine that with JKU oem shocks. These can be had for cheap and the ride is excellent.

|BadSweet||Thanks for all the quick replys. Ive read that with a BB I will retain my stock ride. If doing a full suspension lift of only 2 or 2.5 inches, will I still keep the stock ride?? What is the best kit to insure I keep the on toad ride I want?? I don't mind piecing things together either if it means a smoother ride. I'd even consider leveling the front out with the rear without fully lifting if it helps keep the front from rubbing. This crazy or acceptable?? I should have mentioned this in the OP but I'd like to keep the cost under 300-400 if possible....don't mind spending a little more or less if the outcome is worthy. Thanks again|

|ThatWhiteMachine101||Get a 2" spring lift. Like RC or Rancho or OME depending on how much you want to spend. You'll clear 31s with ease if your wheels have enough BS. Which you'll want around 3 3/4 inches give or take a little. In my opinion stay away from Budget boosts if you don't plan to use it for anything besides gaining lift. Just save a get a full suspension lift.|

|RevCo666||31's don't require a lift. I run a stock setup on 31's with no issues. If you go bigger than 31's then yes, lift it. If you plan on staying with those tires, don't waste your money.|

|Big Sarge||If you plan on doing a lift, you will not be able to use your stock shocks. I personally reccomend Rancho 9000xl shocks and zone lift.|

When I used to have spacers, I had these:
Pro Comp Tires, Pro Comp Xtreme Alloy Wheels, Yukon Gears, Yukon, Coil Spacers, Budget Boost
Regarding your rubbing at full steer...this article will explain how to make adjustments to resolve it.

Alright, I've read a researched so much lately that I'm now at the point where i retain nothing. I think I've gotten it only to read something else and be even more confused.....SO....
I want to lift my LJ. Nothing crazy, I will only do some mild trails and beach riding. I have 31s run ready to be installed and now I'm looking at a 2" spacer lift. Please give me your recommendations as to what I should buy. I want to use factory shocks and retain the smooth on road ride I have now. I currently have 30s and experience rubbing when turning fully....so I need something BC I know the taller and wider 31s will be worse. So, give it to me but plz take it easy on me....this is my first jeep and I'm just trying to get this right. I'm a chick but I can handle my own ...I think. LOL. Thanks guys/gals.
