Adding more lift

I was wondering the best way to add a 1" or 1.5" lift to an already 3" lift

Well is your current lift a full spring lift? If so grab some lift shackles and coil spacers.

I don't feel like searching.. Describe your lift NOT the brand.... Lots of ways to do a lift, more ways to add to a lift.

96 XJ 4.0 / 231 / 3.5" JY Lift/ 31" BFG /.....
93 VT1100 - Harley killer.
97 ZJ 4.0 / 242 / Stock
93 ZJ 4.0 / 2"BB / Wranglers / RIP-Gone but not forgotten.

If it aint dirty, it aint a JEEP, it's just a SUV.

If you went the cheap route the first time ( bastard pack) this is where we flame you for not doing it right the first time.

Shackles or a small block lift in the rear will work..and coil spacers up front.
