A 1" to 1.5" body lift would be a good choice though

|withay||Thanks for that! I feel better about doing it.|

|legman68||Do it yourself, took me about 4 hours, teaching my daughter along the way. And we didn't break any boltsNow she knows how to adjust the alignment on her own vehicle!|

|GoldTJ||I did mine the first time in about 4 hours.I am very mechanically inclined,and used to be a mechanic.I stupidly did not do alignment,and freaked out and snatched it out two days later.The time was cut in half.After doing much research,I re-installed it about a month ago.2 hours.This time I did toe-in adjustment.BAM!Got it right.Now if I can only eliminate the horrible vibration I get from 50-70 M.P.H.,I will be golden.I'm gonna drop the transfer case/skid plate 1" and see if that works,asap.A work in progress.I highly recommend doing it yourself,if not for any other reason than getting familiar with all the mechanicals!|

|withay||Don't mind if I threadjack but spacers and shocks doesn't sound bad. Is that really it??|
|11-16-2010 05:12 PM|
|NUTnOUT||anyone know if i could do this to add to my 4" lift i already have or is a body lift better? i've had a body lift before and this doesn't look like it does the same as a body lift where my shifter will be lower in the rig.|

JUST did mine 2 weeks ago... It's simple. I actually coached my girlfriend though the front ones. PB blaster IS your friend.
One very helpful hint when removing and reinstalling the springs... use the jack at the opposite end of the axle to raise it. It will drop the side you are working on down quite a bit.
PM me if you have any questions.

|25172021k||Do it. It not hard it just takes time allow a full day to be safe. I must have been lucky. I did the shocks and did not bust a bolt.|
|11-16-2010 04:55 PM|
|Bruck||If you end up doing shocks, PBW is your friend brother. I had 1 bolt per side snap off on the rear shocks when I did mine. Drill baby drill....|
|11-16-2010 03:28 PM|
|05tjrubi||It is not too bad. Installed mine in about four hours.|
|11-16-2010 02:26 PM|
I wouldn't go larger than 31" on stock. Anyway if it's not for offroad don't worry about replacing the shocks. To just install 2" spacers you should be able to handle it (assuming you have tools) Like I said check the link I posted above and see if it's something you can handle.
If you were doing shocks as well I would say plan on taking some time because theirs a 90% chance you will snap at least one upper bolt on the rear shocks, I snapped all 4 of mine and my jeeps only 4 years old.

|BBS24||doing it for looks and to fit 32" tires....Im afraid 32's on stock may be rubbing in the turns....|
|11-16-2010 02:20 PM|
|adkjoe||Are you doing this for looks or for more clearance offroad aka larger tires? Don't pay a shop to do it, if you have basic tools and some smarts it's more than doable by yourself especially with this forum to help.|
|11-16-2010 02:18 PM|
|4Jeepn||you can run the stock shocks with it, but you will have your flex limited. Not a major deal..|
|11-16-2010 02:15 PM|
|BBS24||just the spacers....is that what most people do or do I need to buy new shocks as well?|
|11-16-2010 02:14 PM|
If You have never done an install before plan for it to take a whole day. morning to evening. Then don't for get you will need an alignment.
various sockets and wrenches
for a shop to do it figure 4-6 hrs at a rate of 75-100 bucks
|11-16-2010 02:13 PM|
Are you adding longer shocks as well or are you just adding the 2" coil spacers?
I don't know your skill level so check this out and see if it's something you can handle. It's pretty easy with basic tools.

2" BB install question
Im thinking of doing this at home, is it easy to install the 2"BB? How many hours will it take and can it be done with basic tools? If it seems too tough how many hours and $ could I expect a shop to do the install? thanks
