InfernoGirl You don't have to replace the shocks with coil spacers.

JeepnJim I agree. I think we're all cut from the same cloth.

theres nothing wrong with that, whatever works for someone is up to them. i was just makin another recommendation vs. the body lift. the 31" tires on stock suspension is a good look too, thats what i had before I put my lift on

Messing with the factory suspension by using cheap budget boosts or low end suspension lifts can open a can of worms and cause high blood pressure and strokes. Of course I'm just a hillbilly and opinions vary wildly.
a budget boost is a budget boost. along with that all you need are new shocks. i think you will find that a majority of people go the budget boost route when looking for a cheap way to get their jeep off of the ground

Drummer_192 Think i just searched for 97 Wrangler Spring spacers, or something to that effect. Lost of choices.

02-24-2010 08:26 PM
Drummer_192 Got mine off ebay, 50 bucks.

Cons_Table why do you prefer the body lift? consider a budget boost if you are wanting 2 inches and a simple install. all you will need are the spring spacers and new shocks

Body Lift

Just bought an 05 TJ Sport and want to lift it for a better look. 2 inches is all i want, preferably a body lift. Will i have to replace any other parts and where is the cheapest place to get the pucks from?
