I would do a spring lift before I would do a spacer lift.

But the body lift idea wasn't a bad suggestion either, that would allow for a flat belly skid.

My RHD TJ - Savvy equipped... And loving it!

I drive on the right side, what's wrong with you?

Now, now, Boggie. Yours is as loud as anyone else's.

I'm partial to OME for ride and longevity. On the other hand, everyone's entitled to learn from their own mistakes.

The RC has some excellent instructions, which I like. I have changed out shocks before on my 95 Grand Cherokee, so I feel I can handle this with good instructions.

Yes I am quoting myself! I have been bit by the bug! Damn near gobbled up! So not that long ago I actually said I wasn't going bigger than 31's

So now I am selling my 98 TJ ($5,000 is what I'll list it on here for) only to upgrade to Rubi or at least a TJ with the 4.0. Ohh and I also plan to run 33's and one day 35's. Hell I might just jump into the 35's but there is a lot more involved so I have to plan it out

Anyway wow how things change!

Wow. Lots of opinion based on people's own usage, with no questions.

What is your intended use for the Jeep? Is this a daily driver? A crawler? A second vehicle?

A lot depends on what you want to get out of it. And there's no judging ... it's a Jeep ... that's all that matters.

If this is a daily driver that won't see much rock use, go with the kit that replaces springs/shocks and then buy tires that are quiet and less aggressive treaded. You probably need the new springs/shocks anyway. If this is a Jeep that you'll be using for crawling, go with the toughest components and slowly keep adding to it. (Don't expect it to be cheap)

What's your intended usage?
