bumblebee13 okay dokie!

thanks Nicolas, your the best!

nicolas-eric With the 1" MML you will not need a TC drop or SYE with "only" 2 of lift.

Don´t disconnect the swaybar when you´re off teh road. The 33" tires will rub in the fenders with that lift.

bumblebee13 4point - i do have 2" spring spacer (or BB) lift
- in honesty I'm doing it just for lift, my 33's ALREADY fit
- I've read many places you need a MML to keep said "vibes" away
*remember i have 2" BB already so my geometery is already off

jp90talon - YOUR my hero, and i love your ride height and look
- the before and after are perfect, i have a 2" bb so i can tell EXACTLY whats its going to look like

Thanks everyone a 1.25" JKS BL and 1" MML it is!

last question for today :P

So with a 2" BB + the 1.25 JKS BL & 1" MML, Will i need a TC drop? or a SYE?

nicolas-eric A 2" BL should come with all parts that are needed. I installed such a 2" BL from Performance Accessories in 4 TJs and there never was a problem.

And call it a day

Stock suspension with 32" BFGs

After JKS 1.25 BL, 1" motor mount lift, and OME 2"-2.5" suspension

Jerry Bransford X2, avoid the temptation to install a 2" body lift. That extra 3/4" to 1" height just adds more issues to keeping things like both of your two shifters (transmission and transfer case working properly.

4point I didn't mean to kill the momentum in your other thread. With the 2" budget boost and a 1.25" body lift you will be able to accommodate 33" tires just fine. A 2 inch body lift is too much IMO. You do not need a MML for a body lift, you will need to move the radiator shroud down though. Its no big deal.

nicolas-eric Do you have a lift?
If not some cheap 2" spring spacers would be a better idea IMO.

1.25 compared to 2"

so with my new discovery of my "2 inch BB puck lift?!"

I'm just going to get a Body lift.

i know its frowned upon, but listen up!

1. I'm in highschool, so really on a budget
2. I'll get off road some, but never really crawl, so clearance, and flex and stuff i dont worry about.
3. I just want some lift to make it Look like a Big Rig

reading up, getting a 1.25BL i need a motor mount lift to not move a shroud or something

so question is...

1. with a 1.25" BL what size MML do i need?
2. IF going with a 2" BL do i need anything else besides a MML, what size?
3. I have a 2" BB,with either 1.25 or 2" do i need other parts aswell?
4. it will probally be my father doing it, is it hard? he's restoring a old truck so hes kinda good i guess.
5. do you guys have pictures 1.25 to 2?

what do ya think!
