I am planning on buying my third jeep in a couple weeks. My first was a 79 CJ5 and my second was a 97 TJ Sahara(had to sell it after 1 year, payments were too high). Now I am planning on buying a 92 to 95 YJ with a 6 cylinder and a 5 spd. I am on a real limited budget and my question is I am planning on buying Con-Ferr lift shackles(1.25" lift)and I am wondering what everyone thinks about add-a-leafs. Do they make it ride like a tank? Rancho has a set for 70 bucks, any ideas? Also do they sag bad and are they too stiff to flex off-road? I have some 31" BFG mudders all set for my new baby but I cant afford a complet suspesion lift and I am not a fan of body lifts at all. Any ideas would be great.
01 Sport, 4.5" RE LA, 35" BFGs, 4.88 gears in Dana 44s, ARB up front, Eaton E-locker in back, Warn XD9000i, and a bunch of other goodies.....
Previously: 01 TJ on 32s, 94 YJ on 33s, 89 xj on 31s, 97 TJ on 31s, 79 CJ5 on 31s.
Don't do the shackles, it really will mess up the front end steering. 31's will fit with a add-a-leaf. I've even seen 31's on a stock suspension, but it did rub a little on full suspension compression.
89' YJ - 4.2 - NV4500 - NP231w/sye - 1" Body Lift - 2 1/2" Rancho Suspension Lift - 31" Firestone MTR - AR Outlaw II - Tomken Bumpers F & R - Warn 8000 front - Warn 6000 rec. mount rear - FlowFit Seats - Tom Woods Rear & Custom 2" front driveshafts
I disagree on the shackles and it will wheel better. dont go overboard on the shackles, if you want more lift do springs. ad a leafs will make your ride harder and will limit any flex.
94 yj SOA +3.5", 35" swampers.
