1" body lift and 1" wheel spacer
 
I am putting off my suspension lift until next year (Need more $$$). I am thinking that putting an inch body lift on my 02 TJ X would hold me off for the summer. Also I am also thinking of putting on 1" of wheel spacers on as well. I currently am running 31" tires on my TJ X. Any thoughts on this?

Ideally, i am planning on putting a 4" suspension lift with 33's, but i want to do it right and not go the cheap way out. Thanks, love to hear some good feedback.

What is your purpose for the wheel spacers?

i live in vail, co and plan to do plenty of off-roading this summer. I guess the current theory in my head is...an inch of lift makes it a bit more top-heavy, thus widening the stance would help with that? This is why i am posting on here, to get some feedback.

Thanks.

One inch lift won't make that much difference as far as needing spacers.

Thanks for the heads up guys. I think I will just stick to the inch body lift for the trails this summer. Would 1.25" be too much? Any recommendations on brands?

I think 1.25 is about the max u wanna go to avoid issues that arise with large body lifts (2-3"). Plus, most people find heights like that to be less appealing to the eye, but that is up to you. I have a 1.25" from JKS. Most body lifts are gonna be virtually the same...so company is not going to be a big factor.

Yea, I guess if money wasn't a problem. Why you want to pay for it?

Just paid for mine. Still taking donations for it.
