Body Lift
 
Just bought an 05 TJ Sport and want to lift it for a better look. 2 inches is all i want, preferably a body lift. Will i have to replace any other parts and where is the cheapest place to get the pucks from?

why do you prefer the body lift? consider a budget boost if you are wanting 2 inches and a simple install. all you will need are the spring spacers and new shocks

Quadratec and 4 wheel drive hardware offer 1, 1.25, 2 and 3" body lft kits. Everything needed is in the kits. I removed my 3" body lift because of the awkward look of it and replaced it with a more acceptable looking JKS 1.25" BL and went down from 32" tires to 31". It gives it a good look, it's very trail capable with good wheel travel, and keeps your suspension stock. Messing with the factory suspension by using cheap budget boosts or low end suspension lifts can open a can of worms and cause high blood pressure and strokes. Of course I'm just a hillbilly and opinions vary wildly.

where would be the best place to get the BB(lowest cost preferably) and what do you recommend for the brand..?

Got mine off ebay, 50 bucks.

johnnysaz77 02-24-2010 09:28 PM

what did you get so i know what to look for?

Drummer_192 02-24-2010 09:40 PM

Think i just searched for 97 Wrangler Spring spacers, or something to that effect. Lost of choices.

a budget boost is a budget boost. along with that all you need are new shocks. i think you will find that a majority of people go the budget boost route when looking for a cheap way to get their jeep off of the ground

I don't take the same path as the majority of the people. I guess I'm just a free thinking Jeeper.

theres nothing wrong with that, whatever works for someone is up to them. i was just makin another recommendation vs. the body lift. the 31" tires on stock suspension is a good look too, thats what i had before I put my lift on :wavey:

JeepnJim 02-25-2010 01:03 PM

I agree. I think we're all cut from the same cloth.

You don't have to replace the shocks with coil spacers.
