so in the future, there is a 3" lift for the jeep. but thats when my 30s wear down and money is recovering from the bumpers and armor. for now, id like to get 2" spacers and 2" AALs for the jeep for now. but i dont want to swap the shocks since i dont want to break any bolts since i can only have the garage for one day. just curious who has still got stock size shocks with a bb. ive heard itll work and i only do mud and light trails as of right now and dont flex it alot so i should be good.
just wondering whos all doin it.

Think of it this way...if you PB Blast the bolts for a few days in advance...and you are careful I doubt you are going to break a bolt on a 99. you just have to be careful about it. I did my 97 and PB Blasted them three days straight in advance and they came out really easily. I would also reccomend renting a spring compressor because it will cut down in time that you have to spend on the project by a couple hours. and....if you rent it at autozone you get all your money back when you return it...so its free. Have fun!
I'm running stock shocks with 2" in the rear and 1.75" up front. no problems so far, it will just make your ride a little stiffer. but I replaced the shocks a while back with stock shocks and broke all four upper bolts. If you have access to an air chisel, it's an easy fix. just punch out the weld nuts then run a wire through the bolt hole and out the access hole, then tape your new 1" grade 8 bolt with flat washer to the wire and pull it thru. you can reach the bolt with a wrench to tighten it. took me about 45 minutes to replace all four.
