Body Lift

I have a 1995 Wrangler with a 2 inch shackle lift, a Black Diamond 3 1/2 inch spring lift ( I think ) and what looks to be a stock body lift (very worn). All of this riding on 35x12.5 inch tires. I am looking to do a poly body lift. What would be the recommended body lift where I need to make no other alterations and what brand would be recommended.

Are you wanting to run bigger tires? In my opinion and that's all it is. I think larger than 1" body lifts are very tacky. I have a 95 with a 4" skyjacker and 2" shackle lift and it had a 3" body lift that was one of the first things I snatched off it after buying. If you want it. You can have it you pay the dime to ship it. I was running 36's now 35's.

1" BL is more or less the highest you want to go. Look into Daystar or Prothane brand. Both are very good.

I went from a 3" (PO installed) down to a 1" Prothane when I got my BDS springs. I like it.
