3/4" Leveling kit on Stock TJ
 
High school budget and I don't want to have to deal with a lifted vehicle as I travel a lot for sports, but would like a better look. Will a 3/4" leveling kit do what I want just to fix the rake and make it look a little better? If anyone has done this and has some pictures, please post. It's all stock.

Not going to really be noticeable. I installed 3/4" spacers on the front of my rig with 4.5" coils to offset the added weight from a winch and the increase in height was negligible and not worth the effort.

or was it just not as noticeable because you already had 4.5" and the 3/4" wasn't much in comparison to the 4.5? leveling spacers are cheap and alignment isn't too bad. Just wondering how it would help a stock jeep.

rugged ridge has a 2" bb leveling kit. 2" spacer in the front, 1 1/4 in the rear. That's what i got plus I put new shocks in since it was apart. Everything else is stock.

I have a 30/35 axle and 3.07 gear ratio, I'd really rather not do a 2" lift with all the driving have to do.

fill the tank full of gas, throw some gear in the trunk, and have two buddies sit in the back seat. report back if it still has a forward rake.

But then it just sits even lower than it already is! haha

my point exactly. the rake is there so your not dragging your arse around like a dog with worms when loaded down.

So you have rearward rake?

I installed 1.75 coil spring spacers on my 98 and it just leveled out I removed what looked like 1/2" spacers stock I guess but I don't hurt gas only if you go bigger tires

Course the bumper and winch are diff from one to the next that makes a difference alone and I have body lift with 33x12.5x15 tires so a little diff than what stock would be
