3" Body Lift
 
Okay, so I'm about to put a 3" body lift on my Wrangler so I can fit 33"s. RELAX, it is only temporary, until I get a 4" suspension, then I'll change it to only a 1" body lift. So my question is: After I put on my 3" BL, is there anything I'm going to have to change?(i.e. fuel lines, break lines, stuff like that)
Thank you for any help I get.

With the mods required to get everything working properly with a 3" body lift, I wouldn't install it even on a temporary basis. Then going back from a 3" BL to a 1" is going to be a PITA too. T-case and transmission shifters, steering, gas lines, vent lines, etc. will all need to be fussed with. Don't do it, wait to install the 33" tires until you can get 4" of lift via the 3" suspension and 1" body lift. :)

If your on a budget, go with a BB and a 1" BL. 33's no prob.

Call me stupid, but what's a BB?

x2. This will clear 33's just fine.

The 3" bl will require you to cut hoses such as the fuel line while a 1" bl does not, meaning you will cut stuff that will not be replaced by the 1" bl.. honestly its harder to move down from a bl. I have a 2" bl and i know to go back to 1" bl i'll have to do quite a bit of stuff and custom fab few things.

right on, do it right the first time. and make sure you like the way any body lift looks, even 1 inch.
personally i don't like the gap between the body and frame.

plus a three inch body lift will look like crap and you will get laughed at.

So far i've been able to cover up my 2" bl perfectly, it looks stock now. I've covered up everything including my rear bumper and my stock side steps..
