1973 CJ5 Help
I've been looking at getting a lift ever since I got my Jeep. Went wheeling last week and rubbed rear tires BAD even though I was extremely careful (went through some mud and fell into some dry deep ruts after), as it cracked the paint and bent rear fenders. Time for a lift, lol. I don't want to get a 3 or 4" lift because of dropped p-arms, t-case, etc. I was looking at getting a 2.5 Rancho or maybe Skyjacker but was wondering if anyone can sway my mind one way or the other. Another thing- the PO put Rancho 5000 series shocks on, so can I find a 2.5 kit w/ just springs, bolts, etc.? I don't see a need to replace them since they are less than 3 years old, they check out and it still rides great. I was also thinking a P.A. 1 or maybe 2 inch body lift, with a 1/2 or 3/4 inch shackle lift along with the 2.5. Any trouble with this? Thanks!
