i dont want to see the driveshaft and oil pan protector hanging below my body, so is a body lift or a suspension lift better? Also, how would 3 inch lift with 32s look? Jeep is an 03 2 door.

Probably better to post this in one of the Wrangler technical forums. . .

Anyways, heres my $0.02. Body lifts over an inch look stupid because the frame becomes too exposed. You must learn to live with the driveshaft and oil pan protector hanging below the body; nothing you do will change this short of fabbing up new motor mounts and raising the motor (and then you start killing the center of gravity). Even then, the driveshafts will still hang down unless you get portals or something like that.

I think a 3" suspension lift and 32's would look super.

Lastly, where in RI are you located and what level of interest do you have in wheeling. PM me if you want.
