CJ 7 Lift Kit

I am going to start a total rebuild on my 1977 cj 7 jeep. I want a good ride that I can clear 33"s. What should I buy? I am starting with a perfect 1984 frame,I will be using the jeep up north in michigan on logging and forest service roads, and 2 tracks.

Rough Country lift

I also have 33s and am very happy with my Rough Country 4 inch leaf spring lift. Good clearance with a good price.

As far as I am concerned BDS has the best package, and guarantee.. The ride is as good as any out there as well.

I'm a fan of the SOA with stock leafs and shackles. Especially when done with softer YJ springs all the way around.

My personal belief for that set up is going with the Rubicon Express Extreme Duty 2.5" lift and then do a 1 inch body lift. This gives you great articulation, keeps your steering geometry simple, gives you a complete kit with everything you need, keeps your center of gravity low and offers a great ride on the street and on the trails at speed. I do not think you can buy a better lift for a CJ personally.
