BDS suspension sells a 2" coil kit with shocks. Might want to check on that before you try the BB..

^ 2X

I was considering the 3" rustys but now ended up getting 3" FT lift since it comes with track bar. The track bar ends up being around 100 bucks with that lift and i want to replace since my stock one since it's worn out and makes popping noise at the ball joint.

^ sort of gotta think forward first.. if you want some lift for now and would want to go bigger later than bb would be good.. if u plan on not going bigger than get a coil lift as Nicolas-Eric said above. I planned on going bigger so i just got a 2" Bodylift first since its cheap and its a lift to get the bugs spreading and now i just ordered 3" more of suspension lift to add on to the Bodylift so it should get me rolling on 5".

I wouldnt suggest going much taller than 2" of body lift though. I ahve heard of some pretty horrible stories when it gets over 2".

^ 2x... many people here are completely agains any bl over 1.5

2" is the max i'd recomend my self.. thats why i went with 2. For anything above quite more stuff is needed to be modified for such a difference.

I figured most people would be. Im actually surprised to went 2" wiht it but I can understand. Its a cheap and easy way to lift. Id just be worried about the shifting linkage and what not. Personally Im gonna go with the JKS 1.25" bl and raised motor mounts. It should do for me what I need it to (clear some 35's and allow em' to flex a bit) along with the lift I already have.

The shift linkages came with my bl that i got from ebay.. it went so smooth i didnt think a bl would be that easy.

95 bucks shipped to my house..

Right now all I am looking for is just a little more ground clearance. and to add mabe some 32's for tire size. I don't plan on going any higher since it is my dd. but we all know how that jeep thing works.

I have a 1" that i havent put on yet. Should I have gotten the motor mounts also? The kit I got didn't suggest it.

Did you drop the tranny at all with that RE? Do you have any vibes? If so i'd get a MML also since both BL and MML together will go easier and also remove the vibes so you can try running it with out the tranny drop.

No I didnt get a tranny braket. I dont have any more vibrations other than the tire vibration which should be taken care of next week when I get it aligned with the new tires. Do you think after I put the BL on that I would need the other brakets. I didnt think that with just 1" that I would need to adjust anything. I have looked at my directions and they are worthless. Anyone have any helpful hints I'm gonna try to get it done tomorrow in a couple hours. :rofl: :confused:
