There are endless threads out there debating wheel spacers. Run some searches and you'll be able to read until your eyes cross.

Personally, I am off the camp that believes the "bad stories"...

For the younger generation, I think many years of seeing friends and relatives buy relatively trouble-free vehicles has skewed perceptions.

When you buy or lease a relatively new vehicle, you...

Got to try it to really know.

From the first post:



Further, the lift may actually make it worse, as it may raise the bottom portion of the rear sway links into contact with the inner...

The appearance differences are minuscule going from the Sport to the rubicon. It's just a decal, mud tires, and a few other things. Those are all easily replicated aftermarket and have almost nothing...

For TJs, they've got sections you can weld in as a patch if your rust issue is localized, but that's it. No complete new frames.

What's weird is that there are several places you can get...

That's almost certainly the route I'm headed. If you don't mind sharing, where/how did you get the frame and what did it end up costing you?

Yup, those guys aren't starving for cash, that's for sure. I linked the page specifically because I figured folks would hardly believe it.

"Suspension lifts" include "budget boosts" as well as "coil" or "spring" lifts.

"Budget boost" refers to kits that involve placing "spacers" or "pucks" on top of your existing coil springs to...

Also depends very much on what exactly you're looking for.

Since you're looking for the cheapest route, you presumably would be alright with used parts and perhaps even DIY install? In that...

I've got 50k on the JKU right now! :)

We've also got a 2003 Yukon with 168k miles that runs great.

That said . . . this is indeed one of my concerns. The TJ has the famous inline 6, but it...

Is it really plausible to believe that swapping the frame due to rust issues is going to work out reasonably well?

That's certainly what I'm hoping, both in terms of performance and the status of the OE parts.



Yep, that's why I'm asking.

Well in fairness . . . your standards, experience, and expectations when it comes to "jeep modification" are, shall we say, a touch higher than most. :rofl:

I haven't yet decided if I'm actually crazy for trying this. I mean, it's a FRAME REPLACEMENT. Usually that means surrender and PART THE JEEP OUT.
