Ya'll recomend 1" or 2" body lift?
 
Just wanted a few suggestions on a body lift, my 4" suspension lift has grown on me, and it looks small to me, I can't go any higher with the suspension due to va lift laws. Any opinion is appreciated...

booo body lifts.

what kind of law will limit the suspension lift, but allow more body lift. is it bumper height? i'd make up lower bumpers before body lift.

1" tops on body lift , just my opinion

A one inch BL is ok but I would NOT (edit :D) go much higher than that. Also, a one inch BL allows you more skid plate options.

^you'd go much more than 1" bl??? what 3 or 4?:D

anything more than 1 shows big gaps between frame and body and is unsightly to me. just me.

i run a 3 inch body and a 5.5 re spring and my jeep will hands down go everywhere that yours wont..........just messin with you guys......im getting ready to drop the body lift down to one inch so there is room to pull the tranny an stuff..........when i was on a budget it was sweet to have a three inch body lift but now it just makes me to top heavy.....you should beable to stuff any tire you want under 5 inches of lift

jpdocdave;
the law in va goes by bumper height, if you have a stock bumper. If your bumper is altered it goes by frame height.

so if you move the bumper can you get more suspension lift. most guys won't go more than 1" body lift, that won't do a lot for you.
