ZJ, XJ, and WJ CANNOT have a body lift. impossible. the body/frame is one single unit. hence the term "unibody". only suspension lifts are possible.

A ZJ is a unibody, so the frame is welded directly to the body (simplified explanation), you can't unbolt the body and slide spacers between em.

Look on top of your springs. You're gonna see round, black blocks about two inches tall. That's your lift. It's called a budget boost. Some people might call them coil spacers.

Good luck with the truck
i undestand now thats exactly what i see. thanks for clarifying guys! makes much more sense now

If you have a 2" lift, and you probably do because thats usually what the BB's are you can only run 31's without rubbing too much, you either need more lift or less tire.
