Aeight yall so just recently (if you call a year recent) my dad gave me his old '81 CJ5. Its pretty much stock right now but the first thing i want to do it decide what kind of lift i want. Now il be doing SOME climbing but i want to still keep the gas mileage up (ha. ha. ha.). So my question is would it be worth it to put a coil convo on it with maybe a 4" raise? Or would a 1" body lift and a leaf spring lift work just as well? Im thinking about 32" tires and id kinda like to keep as much sheet metal as i can.
For 32s I would start with quality lift springs. BDS and OME are 2 of the must recommended 2.5" kits. They will clear 32s just fine. You could throw in a1"BL in the future if you wanted 33s.

Agreed. Coil spring conversion definitely not worth it unless you are going to rig it for hard core off roading IMO.
