The body lift is 2inch, but its mounted on top of a body bushing, so its measuring about 2 1/4 inches. So i've got a 6 1/4 lift on 33 inch tires.

I do believe i'll remove it.

your rear bumper must be moved/mounted higher then?

can you get a couple pics of the tub bushings?

That is the rear of the jeep, you can see the bumper mount, and above that the body bushings. I was expecting to see the body lift pucks there, but they are not.

In this picture you can see the body lift pucks, this one is on the passenger side just in front of the passenger door.

Well Ive thought about removing mine as well since I have like a 3inch BL w/4in suspension on 35's. The rear looks absolutely ugly with the lifts and wide tires and no spare.... Just giving you an idea of what it looks like
