Pics of a 1 3/4" or 2" spacer lift with 31" tires
 
I just picked up my 2000 TJ last night after a friend put on a 1 3/4" Daystar BB. I have a M8000 warn on a winch plate mounted on the OEM bumper. Before I installed the winch, the front end appeared to be a little higher than the back. After I iinstalled the winch things actually appeared closer to being level. Now, after the BB, the rear of the Jeep seemed quite a bit higher than the front end. I was amazed when I put a level on the rear beltline, where the plastic goes in the grove, the front has to be at least 1/2" lower than the rear, probably more.
I have 31X10.5's and they now look small in the rear wheel wells. It may just be because I am not used to it, but I'm not sure I like the way it looks.
If anyone could post a side view picture or your BB lifted TJ I would sure appreciate it. Thanks

to the people who had the 2 BB with 33s

did you experience any rubbing?? the reason why i ask is because i just purchased a 2in skyjacker lift kit (w nitro charged shocks) and the kits says that the highest that i can go is 32x11.50

Mine was only on 33s with a 2" BB for about 3 weeks. I did not go offroad at all with this setup because it would have definitely rubbed. If you have no intentions of going offroad you will be fine.

Just got back from having lunch with the wife. The low fuel light came on, so I filled it up. It was amazing how much the Jeep leveled out with a full tank of gas. Thanks for the pics.

Yes they definitely rub. This is how I bought my jeep. The bushwackers certainly don't help either

duc202 09-06-2012 08:16 AM

if they rub when making sharp turns or light off-roading, i can possibly deal with that.

rubbing while daily driving is what i would like to avoid

*found a set of 33s for the cheap. that's why i'm asking

sloppywood 09-06-2012 08:36 AM

They rub at full turn and when I hit dips on the trail. I say if you can get them for cheap, get them. If they rub too much for your liking, get a 1" body lift
