body lift with spacers
 
i have been looking on doing a body lift on my X model only about a 1 inch lift this is my daily driver and i dont want much lift. i plan on putting 32" tires on and i want a small lift and it appears that the most efficient way would be a 1 inch spacer. can anyone give me some feedback on this?

I dont know if a 1" BL with will give you all of the clearance you need for 32's. You will not gain any extra articulation with a BL. You may also consider a budget boost, which are usually around 2" spring spacers. Or you could do a complete 2"-2.5" suspension lift for 32's. Just a few thoughts to think about...

I think on the 07 and newer modles it is actually easier and more efficient to do a suspension spacer lift. this way it lifts the whole jeep not just the tub, and there are only 4 of them to put in. I rarely hear many people talking about a body lift on the new ones. Go to Quadratech.com, or 4wd.com and look under the lift section and see what you can find. Also I think you should be able to fit 32's without a problem on a stock rig.

sorry i didnt catch that this was JK thread...

I have also heard you can fit 32's on a stock JK

so would the budget boost be my best bet?

Not only can you fit them, but they come from the factory with 32's as an option.
