As I commented in your other thread, I would not run a 6" suspension lift. What size tires do you plan to run? Your axles aren't strong enough to run a tire big enough to require a 6" suspension lift.

When you have a choice, buy American.

6" is way too high to lift a TJ, especially with 31" tires.

This is a 4 inch lift with 31s. Imagine with 2 inches more.

I couldn't find any pictures of 31s on a 6 inch lift. Wonder why?

I have a 4" zone suspension lift with 31s.... and I need larger tires as the 31s look a little small.... i will probably go with 33 12.5 15... but I may go with a 1" body lift with 35s..... just not sure of the 3.73 gearing...
I would think a 6" lift would be ridiculous looking with 31s....

Oh and also u needed a sye and ds also with the 4"

Leave the 6" lifts to fullsize pickup trucks. 6" is just too much of a high center of gravity for TJ's, and driveline angles become a problem and take lots to correct. But if you insist on 6", go for it and just learn from experience instead our taking our word for it.

my first TJ had a 4 inch lift and 3 inch bodylift sitting on 33's, it was so ugly. Too much lift with such a small tire is not only pointless, but ugly. If you are running 31's stick with 3 inch lift and under

A six inch lift with 31's would look silly. it kind of defeats the purpose of a lift kit. The reason why you lift a vehicle is to put larger tires on it to gain more ground clearance.
