It seems to depend on money and future plans. A small Budget boost is cheap and rewards a guy with immediate clearance under the shovel. A 1 3/4 inch spacer should not produce vibrations in the driveline not require an adjustable track arm. The added clearance also includes the frame up. This is to me the best route for a guy wanting to enhance a stock jeep's capability with no immediate plans for building a rig.

A BL and tummy tuck is serious cash. Most members say that a SYE, driveshaft, and rear adjustable control arms are required. Plus the oilpan, gas tank skid and frame are still at the original height. This is really moving away from a stock to the start of a built rig. Lifting a jeep or the driveline above 2" by any method starts the escalation of suspension and driveline complications and bigger rubber adds the complication of gearing concerns.

That is exactly how I will do my next jeep. BL/MML tummy tuck with a good set of 31's or 32x10.50's. Nice on the highway and great on the trails.

You make a couple of very valid points. I was considering a BL/MML to start but now I am leaning towards a 2"-2.5" suspension lift with new shocks and steering stabalizer on my Solar Yellow 55,000 mile '04 RME. That small lift can be relatively inexpensive, should not create drivetrain problems and gets everything a little higher off the ground.

Those pics are from River Rock (Milledgeville, Central GA, Pay to Play park) and Beasley Knob (Blairsville, Public Use Forest Service). There are a lot of places to go around here but most are parks except tellico, beasley, and amicalola. If you're around again check out the link in my sig and join us for a ride.

No question a stock lift and tire size, or nearly so, Tj is all I need for the wheeling and work use for my rig. Thanks for the great pics and encouragement. Some of you wheelers can really get places that I never thought a stocker could go.

Also it is impressive to see such quality pictures of Jeeps in action. There are some real "calendar shots" here. More please!
