mrcarcrazy yup trash the BL. you can do a 1-1.25'' Body lift, and then a suspension lift. small body lift allows you to lift the engine a bit to help eliminate vibes that come with suspension lifts. Also gives you more options for armor.

Large BL's like you have cause all sorts of problems, they stress the body mounts, cause shifting issues in both transmission and T case, look silly, etc.

My plan is Old Man Emu, as I've heard very few complaints regarding them on/off road.

APPSTATEwrangler well the transmission is not what you should worry about when you have 5in bolts ready to break away from the frame any minute.
but yeah i have heard a bl of any height will cause tranny problems.

usmc_yang The reason I'm getting rid of the bl is cuz the jeep slips out of second and fourth alot. I heard that a vl will do that. Is that true.

jskinn27 x3 on getting rid of the bl.

APPSTATEwrangler old man emu is a good brand, at least their shocks are good. i have the skyjacker 2" budget boost and no complaints here.
that and a set of 32" all terrains will make it look like this:

then you should have enough money to buy a new rock bumper or some other upgrades to suit you.

Samsrubicon Old man emu is good and ppl on here seem to like it. if i had 1500bux to spend, i'd get a nice set of backspaced wheels, nice tires, or just nice tires, a spacer lift 2", and if ure gonna be on the beach a nice system so everyone can hear it lol

usmc_yang I live in havelock, nc. On the beach. I'm planning to spend anywhere between 1000 to 1500 bucks. So any good brands out there?
05-09-2010 11:13 PM
APPSTATEwrangler Yeah definitly scrap the bl. A lift is always a good place to start with a jeep. But with a lift comes bigger tires and many other mods that will require money. A 2in spring spacer lift it good to start with, requires no extra mods and will take 32 in tires. I would also look into some body armour too to make it look more aggressive. It all depends on your budget really. A smaller lift will allow you to buy more upgrades. That's what I would do. Just don't buy cheap equiptment.

By the way where in nc? I'm livin up the mountian in boone.

Ken Steele What ever you do, get rid of that 4" body lift. That is insane. Definately go with the suspension lift.

Help with what mods for the jeep

I have a 99 wrangler. The previous owner put a 4 inch body lift on it. I am thinking of removing it and putting a 3 inch suspension lift on it instead. Please put your input on which lift I should get. Input on any other mods would be great also. I'm pretty new at this so any ideas and help would be appriciated.
