Wj Need a BB lift! suggestions??

i've only had my wj for a week and i scored a set of Moab wheels with 31" tires off a friend of mine and now i HAVE to lift her so they won't rub (haha) as far as i can tell from my searching and researching the only difference between any of the budget boost lifts are the shocks and i don't know the difference between any of the shocks.. does any one have an opinion on which budget lift is better?? so far i've looked at rusty's, rough country and i've sent some emails back and fourth with kolak.. and suggestions or advise would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Jason R.

Suggestions would be to skip the BB and get 2" lift springs, with my preference being for BDS from Fat Bob's Garage. Not much more money and something you probably already need.

x 1 million. Great springs, only $70 more than a budget boost to actually gain performance. See sig for details.

Seriously, just click the BDS lift thread in my signature. More than you wanted to know (including a link to the product from FatBob's).

Don't hold me to it but i believe Fat Bob's Garage uses BDS springs. Im sure someone will correct me if I am wrong.

Billzcat1, I think your "Click Here" Is dead, I just tried.

Correction: The Vendor "Click Here" link. The Fat Bob's at the beginning, was camouflaged from my eyes. O.O

I sincerely wish you would have mentioned you wanted a spring lift. I could have set you up with that as well. Guess that's why you didn't answer my email.

My apologies, I didn't know that I wanted a spring lift until someone showed me one that wasn't much more than the spacer lift and I didn't mean to blow you off.
