Removing a body or suspension lift?

I'm looking at buying a Jeep. It's a 91, and has a 4" suspension lift and a 4" body lift, and is running 33's. I can probably get it for about $4,500. Everything sounds like its in good shape. (I haven't seen it yet .. it's a few hours away from here..)

I'm not planning on doing any heavy off-roading; it'll mainly be used for transporting gear when camping or going to the beach.

I'll probably be putting a kayak on top, so I'm thinking the 8" lift is going to be a little excessive .. would it be relatively easy to *un-lift* this Jeep? (maybe after the 33's wear out, and I can go back down to maybe 31's?)

here's a pic of the Jeep.. (thanks in advance for the advice..)

Nice looking jeep... don't you go messing it up by dropping it!

Seriously though, the body lift should be really easy to take off and won't hurt you any... in fact, you'd be better of. That much body lift isn't to great. I'm in the process of changing my 3" body lift into a 4" suspension lift myself.

Point being, leave the suspension lift alone, drop 3" out of your body lift... I'd leave 1" to make sure you have plenty of coverage.

cool, thanks for the info.

I did forget to mention in the post, that I was talking about just removing the body lift, and not the suspension. I think about 4" of suspension lift is where I want to be.

The guy selling it described it to me and said "when you park it somewhere .. it'll definately stand out!" ..

I just ran a CarFax and everything looks fine. I'm going to go check it out this weekend. Hopefully all will go well.
