2" BB plus 1"BL or 2.5" Skyjacker susp lift plus 1"BL

Which would be the best way to fit 33" tires or none of this will work.I will do some off roading but nothing major or you guys might have some other ideas?? I dont want to go more than 2.5" susp. lift due to chance of getting drive line vibration. Thank you for your help

depends if you are happy with the spring rates of your stock springs. If you like the way it rides.... get the BB

If I go with Skyjacker 2.5 coils, new shocks, bumpstop extensions, t-case drop (if required).... would that be all that's needed, or would control arms need to be replaced/moved?

I'm comparing a 2" BB to gettting Skyjacker coils. Unlike the original post, I'm not looking to do a body lift.

Thanks for your help, if anyone can answer.

you don't really need to worry about control arms. you will probably require a slight t-case drop. you might look into re-centering your axles but that might not be such a big issue for u

take a look at how the front and rear track bars work. When you lift a vehicle it will pull the front and rear axle off center. You have to center your axles to make the geometry the same on each side.

you can do this by either purchasing adjustable trackbars (roughly $130-$200 each) or installing relocation brackets front and rear. The front can also be fixed by measuring out where you want your trackbar to be and drilling through the stock mount to reposition it. I don't think too many people do this with the bb, and i didn't do it with my 2.5" lift. There was a noticeable difference, but i just never got around to 'fixing' it before i bought a new lift

What kind of difference? Did it affect street manners, appearance? I'm thinking of getting coils instead of a BB. I don't want more than 1.75 - 2" in lift, because I don't want the expense of making a lot of other modifications (I only have 31" tires).

I can get a set of Skyjacker 2.5 coils and shocks for about the same price as an REBB. I can live with a t-case drop.

Should I just get the BB? Will 2.5" coils have me making more driveline changes than are required with a B?

TeamCNY if your only getting 31" tires i would go with the BB. you will have plenty of clearance with that for 31 and its cheap.

You can fit 33's with a 2" BB and a 1" BL. It's a fine setup if you're going to be on road most of the time.

Although the new springs are more expensive, you'll get the benefit of a better ride and more flex.

Neither should require much driveline changes, although I'd recommend throwing a 1" motor mount lift on when you do the body lift to help the angles.
