TJ with 33"s (BB and BL)

Hi I want to lift my 2000 TJ to fit 33"s with decent flex, and without spending a fortune. Does anyone have 33"s w/ a BB and a BL, or maybe a 2.5" lift with a 1" or 1.25" BL? Please include brand of suspension and body lifts, and possibly a rough estimate of the price. This would be very helpful. Thanks guys

This is a 2.25" spacer lift (4 Wheel Customs (Ebay) $84) but no body lift and stock shocks. You'll definitely need either a BL or more lift if you plan to flex 33's. I knew I would stuff it, but I am personally OK with that right now as I will be upgrading in the spring. There was definitely some 'self clearance' mechanics going on. Both front fenders have a little hump to them now.

We have an '02 TJ X, and put a Rocky Road Outfitters 3" Combo Lift with shock extensions on it (http://www.rocky-road.com/jeepbudget.html $175). It's a 2" spacer lift with a 1" Performance Accessories BL. RRO has a Lifetime Warranty on their pucks too. I would also recommend JKS Quicker II disconnects for the swaybar (http://www.4x4rockshop.com/scripts/p...idproduct=1915 $145). This one is for a 2" lifted TJ, you don't count the BL. We are currently running BFG AT 31 10.50 15's, but are going to change to 33 10.50 15 BFG MT KM2s when they wear out. I have a friend that has the identical lift on his TJ and he has 33 10.50's and they don't rub at all. You have to use the 10.50 if it's not a Rubicon with the wider flares or if you don't have the wider aftermarket ones.

I can't post pics, but you can go to the gallery in my profile to see the TJ at full flex http://www.jeepforum.com/gallery/dat...arrie07_5_.jpg. Yeah, it's a poser shot. Almost forgot, at full flex the front brakelines were tight like guitar strings, I just relocated the brackets down lower a bit on the frame to cure it.

This is the fiancee's Daily Driver as well as our Trail Rig, so she didn't want to lift it too high, and we didn't want to spend too much money either. It works well for us, we ran Daniel, (Extreme Trail) at Uwharrie in NC with no problem. We've had the TJ on a ramp and we get as much flex as a TJ with a 4" suspension lift. I'm lookin' forward to the KM2's though, better in the mud and a little taller too.

I would also remind you that many people lift their Jeeps, but forget about armor ..... DON'T! You'll regret it.

Hope this helped. If you have any questions, just let me know.


Be well,
Richard

That's Nice! Just curious as to where you got the "rubicon" on the front bumper? Is that a decal? I like it...

Rusty's 2" Coil Lift with 3/4 pucks up front along with a JKS BL & MML now on 33" KM2's

Flex is good for a smaller lift

Hey Joe, those fender flares are awesome, where'd you get 'em? Are they plastic or metal? Did you have to drill new holes, or use the originals?

Be well,
Richard

Xenon Flat Flares from 4WD.com http://www.4wd.com/subcategories.asp...2&jeep-sid=414

They mount to the stock holes. The marker lights take some time but other than that there a simple install
