Unless you have a heavy front bumper and heavy winch, it would give the WJ a wierd looking stance. I guess if you reinforced the frame, added long trailing arms, and turned it into a desert racer it would look good.

But most of the users here crawl, and having more lift in front than back is unnecessary. Why not just do 2 inches front and back?

My budget boost is 2 3/8 in front and 1 7/8 in back and I'm still a little tail high. Got it up where it shoulda been from the factory though. 1 1/4" different lift front to back might be kinda squatted, is that what you're after?

I just wanted to get it closer to level on a budget. Can you give me any information about your lift?

Mine is a $95 budget boost from jgcparts. Stock shocks, 245/75/16s on stock wheels. Been like that for a year, rides like stock (more or less..) and looks much better than the factory bellydragger stance. The BB and a $40 alignment is all it needed..

Hey braddf! I was talking with my jeep friends about the same topic. I just found your thread. My 04 TJ is stock, but I want to get quick disconests on the front axle, then the front lifted 1.75 inches, needs spaced kit and new shocks, then
the rear lifted 0.75 inches, spacer kit 0.75 inches and either an e- locker or air locker. Not sure yet. Nice would be a limited slip differential for my Dana 44 open end axle in rear, but very pricy.

Those specifications should be just ok, to be able to crawl a bit over obstacles, and mainly without interfering with the drive line....

I thought about this option as well. WJ's have a 1" factory rake but it maybe more if your front spring isolators have compressed any. Take some measurements from the center of your front wheels to the bottom lip of your front fender. Do the same on the rear wheels and see how much rake you actually have.

Lots of companies makes 2" front spacers for WJ's and check Kevin's Offroad and dahrkstorm(on Ebay) for rear .75" spacers. It'd be a pretty cheap experiment to try out, take pictures and let us know!

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but how in the world did you get those kinds of measurements? Is that the actual size of the pucks or is there something else contributing?
