Do you know how much lift it had/has? This may help me choose cause i have a 06 TJ with 31's and I'm wondering if a 3" would look goofy or not to bad. I would like a 4" but im pretty sure that would look stupid. I would go 4" but i dont have the money for tires and a possible sye/cv and all that crap hah (High school Budget). Anyway, awesome build I cant believe it looks that good after it was rolled! Cant wait to have the skills to do that myself haha.

3" body lifts should be outlawed. That is all. Now back to regularly scheduled programming.

This Jeep only has a 1" body lift. The best advice we could all give you is to be patient and save your money. Run your Jeep the way it is for a while and keep saving. Try your best to do things right the first time. If you are getting a lift stick around on this forum and read up. A year's worth of saving will make your Jeep well lifted with minimal compromises. Doing a quick and easy lift will have more compromises in ride quality and performance all around. Doing it the right way and your Jeep will ride as good if not better than stock. Hope that helps!

I agree, i dont want a body lift at all.

Wow thats it? Looks like a lot more, maybe its just me. I have been doin my research for bout a year and a half, before i even had my license haha. Ive been saving too, but Im on a high school budget so its taking a while to save. I have enough for the lift and all the components but with a four inch to get a good ride and kit you need to spend a lot just for the kit, then if i need the SYE/CV and such Im out of a ride until i have the money for it. Just in a twist hah, but thanks!

Wow great thread man! You seem to have the patience of a god. The choice to color match everything is a great one, it's interesting (in a good way) to not have every armor piece be solid black against such a great color LJ.

I'll be subscribing
