Question Lift for a 1998 TJ

Anyone have any suggestions on what to do and/or where to go for the lift?? I am in the Springs and want to put between 2 to 3"s on the stock TJ. Thank you for the advice.

Depending on what you decide on the height, 2in budget boost is easy to do yourself. Same really with anything up to 4in. But are you looking for a shop to do the install or just a place to buy it?

I will do it myself. Just not sure if I should do a body lift and a suspension or a just a suspension lift. was thinking of doing a 1 or 2 inch body lift with a 2 to 3 inch suspension lift.

Right now focused more on the body lift at the moment tho.

Don't go more than 1.25" body lift.

This ^^^

How much can you spend? OME gives the best ride for a 2.5" lift.
How big of tires do you want to run?

Start spraying suspension bolts with PB Blaster or similar now and do it several times. The upper rear shock bolts break off real easily and are a real nightmare to deal with if they do. Spray them from the top in between the frame and body.

As others have said, limit your body lift to 1.25"...and I would suggest doing both a body lift and suspension lift as it gives you more options in the future for a tummytuck, etc. But really it's all about what you intend to wheel, i.e. rocks, trails, etc.

I would pair any BL with a MML to keep the driveline in order.
