Lift help?

I have a 1993 ZJ and I'd like to do a 2 or 3 inch lift. I want 31" tires too. Whats the most cost efficient way to do this? And where can I find rims, tires, and off road parts at a good price? Thank you!

You will need new shocks too. Email this man, www.kolak@aol.com. He is a vendor and has good prices. An inexpensive left would be a 2" budget boost, new shocks, and tires from www.treadwright.com. Your only option is a suspension lift. ZJ's are unibody.

For a complete ZJ kit, the words CHEAP and LIFT should never be used in the same thread. If you're fine with 2", then get the spacers and shocks - meanwhile, cross your fingers you don't discover hidden bushing issues. If for some reason you must get to 3", then you have alot of research to do. Once you read, you'll know why some people are poking fun at your inquiry. X2 no such thing as a body lift on ZJ.

Okay so a 2" will work with 31" tires on a ZJ?

If you put in spacers you will get 1.75in of a lift and you will be able to fit 31s with minor trimming to the front bumper. As far as off roading with them. You will rub in alot of places but maybe you might be lucky and not rub.
