Woah! You weren't kidding when you said "stuffed" Hope there are no speed bumps or potholes where you live!

One hole will ruin your day. Tires. And suspension. Been there. If your cheap body lift it.

How bad of a hole are we talking about? My springs aren't much more depressed than they were before.

please!!! Do not go over 1.5" body lift. Anything over that is just ugly and also not good for your tub if there is any rust whatsoever

1 inch body lift and a 1 inch shackle lift would look pretty good with those 31's.

i ran a 1.5" suspension lift with 31's for years and never had clearance issues. i think it was a superlift brand kit.

So I did some flexing on my flexin rock outside my yard yesterday (I figure the rock is the size that will limit if I can go further down a trail or just go back) and the side of the axle that was on the rock pushed the tire so it was pushing the plastic flare up about 1/2" I don't plan on doing any extreme crawling, just some weekend warrior offloading and camping around in the jeep. Does everybody still think I need a lift? My springs seem pretty stiff as they are.

Also, I forgot to say this: I met the PO of my jeep! I bought it from a dealership, and figured I would never find the PO. And get this: the first owner of it lived about five minutes away from me! He said selling that YJ was one of the things he wished had never done.
