Hello jk owners, I was thinking of putting a 2 inch body lift on my '08 JKU. Do I have to extend the shifter linkage or steering shaft ect... Its an auto:redface:
All you need to fit 35's is a leveling kit with flat fenders or a 2.5" lift. You don't need 4" of lift unless you wanna run something like 37's-40'sits just to expensive, for the most part. its over $1000 for a 4inch lift that doesn't come with track bars. and that's not even with the cost of tires and rims. the most he wants to go is with 35s so some power is still there.
+1 those metal cloak 3.5 coils have been calling my name.. Got some cash burning a whole in my pocket..To the OP. I would only do 1 inch body lift, if any at all. I have a 2.5 inch coil lift and 1 inch body lift on 37s. For my own use, it makes sense for me to run a 2.5inch suspension + 1 inch body lift instead of a 3.5 inch suspension lift.
Because im only at 2.5 inches, i don't need aftermarket drive shafts and other suspension components that a 3.5 may require. But, im still at 3.5 inches of lift altogether. To be honest, i did the body lift just to give the wheel wells more space, and the gap doesn't bother me. i don't think body lifts do anything for articulation.
But, part of me is thinking of going to a 3.5 inch set of coils:whistling:
Money, plain and simple. unk:Sure go ahead and do a 2" bl. Ill laugh as I drive buy wondering why someone would do that instead of a proper 2" suspention lift.
