Suspension lift on 29" tires??

This is my first post. In case you were wondering?? I have a 91 YJ and was told by a 4x4 shop that they can install a 2.5" lift w/out any problems for about $800. Is this too much and will it work without lookin like total S#it??? -Tony

??? Including the following I'd hope
- new springs
- new shocks
- transfer case drop spacers
- sims for the axles
- track bar relocation brackets
- new u-bolts
- extended bumpstops
- brake line relocation
& without a body lift or extended shackles

and it should look something like this

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

Save some money, grab a friend or two and do it yourself. That should drop the price to 500 to 600 dollars and a case of beer

I agree with Tonka. If you have any mechanical knowledge or are atleast decent with your hands and directions, they are not terribly difficult.
One more thought to consider, are you going to be offraoding or is this just for looks? If you will be using your Jeep for its designed purpose, why not go with a higher lift: 3.5", 4" or 4.5". I recently purchased a BDS 3.5 lift from JimsOffroadWarehouse.com for about $500, and a 1" body lift. This has given me around 4.5" of lift. However, you will need new shocks, but in the end I think you will be happy with a taller lift.
Just another option to consider.

Good luck and welcome to the forum.

Tony,
That actually sounds a bit steep. If you would like, I know some people out in SA that could help you out. Like mentioned earlier, beer and pizza are typical compensation.

Shoot me an email so we can all hook up sometime. I'm not lookin to do anything for about a week or two. Where's the best place to but the kit? -T

Its hard to screw up a lift, and I know of 3 people running 215's with 4.5 inches of lift on their 2 tj's and one yj. spend $3.00 on some stickers and put "under construction" on the jeep somewhere. If you frequently offroad, then the goofy looks and a larger lift are the way to go. Remember that your rig will only be that way temporarily and it will save you some cash in the long run.
