NO...don't do it.....a BB is the beginning of the end.

Because that will just make you want to take it offroad........

then you'll decide you need a 4" lift and 285's

then you'll decide you need long arms


OMG the agony of it all........somebody shoot me

98 5.9 Some stuff attached
It's true that I'm old enough to probably have been there and done that....it doesn't make me an expert....it gives me an educated opinion.

My last zj was one of "those" jeeps. After the BB and Up-country, i experienced slight DW, the frost d/s went, extreme rubbing on the lower control arms (at less then full lock), could never get a correct alignement, and more front d/s vibes with the new one.

I would never lift a DD again, since i dont have the tools nor the time to do my own work, in the year i owned that jeep i think my mechanic had it more then i did.

Is this with say general 2.5 lifts and 31" tires, or is this more with heavy suspension work and say a 4-whatever lift?
