Lift Kit 2.5"

I am contemplating a 2.5" lift on my 75 cj5 and want to hwar form all of you who have it to see what you think. I do not off road my jeep I know I should thats what its for but for now I am just enjoying it. I always wanted one and finally got one a year ago. Just spending time as I can getting it where I want it. So please let me know what you think and I would love to see some before and after pics if you have them. Thanks

Passing on what I was told here..... BDS lifts are very good,so OME buy pricy and you must convert to a YJ width spring up front. The cheap ones from my experiance arent worth the powder to blow em up. For pics check out the "jeep picture request" section.

You might want to poke around
The pickisn for pre-'75 CJ's are pretty slim and less than stellar from what I've seen. The best results look to come from converting to a '76-'86 CJ suspension or even better a YJ suspension, both of which involve some surgery.
