After going to Badlands I realised a little extra clearance would be nice. I almost got stuck on a rock at one point. My 2" lift kit is here! I should be good to go on June 3rd when we return to Badlands.

A lift is only part of getting clearance.. you only gain axle clearance by going with bigger tires

I didn't have any problem with axle clearance. Just skid and hitch clearance.

what you said makes no sense--nick is right, until the tires get larger your drag is axle, diffs, control arms, etc. lift is only so larger tires will fit under jeep--lift alone changes the vehicle CG and ruins steering geometry and offsets axles. a 2 in spacer kit with 32" tires is a good cheap place to start but most important is trail driving experience and knowing the right line to drive especially in a virtually stock vehicle

I know how to drive on the trails. That's why I don't have axle clearance issues. I don't put my axles in danger. I stick my tires on the high spots not the center of the axle. It's common sense. When you go down into a deep hole the hitch hits the lip going in. When you turn a corner after going over a rock it will hit the skid.

You're really smart. You probably meant to say common sense, right?

My phone has auto correct and I probably missed a letter or two. Jeepers are so rude.

Sense. Is that better? Why do you have to attack someone for a spelling mistake? We are all friends here. I didn't say I was a pro off road. I just know how keep my differential safe on the trails.

Just another grammar nazi at work. Don't worry, ribbing is all part of the fun.

Anyone have a body lift for an XJ?


I've been married so long I don't bother looking
both ways before crossing the road.

I'm not worried about it. Face to face out on the trails we all get along.
