Building a lift

So I'm way new to the forum (this is my first post ) and I've been doing a bunch of research on suspension lifts. I've got 32s I need to put on the TJ, but its been craziness trying to figure out which way to go. As far as a smooth ride, Skyjacker hydro shocks seem to be decent, but BDS has the best warranty and pretty decent reviews. Has anyone kinda made their own suspension lifts with parts from other manufacturers? I'm looking at 2"-3.5" depending on costs. Is it just cheaper/easier/better to get one of the lift kits? BTW the rig will probably never see rocks, its mainly a fishing thing

Zone 2" BB for what you'll use it for.The Zone hydro shocks ride better than SJ hydros and cost the same.PM RyanXT on here for a price.If you want more lift,add a 1.25" BL.For reference,here's my old 98' with a 2" BB/1.25" BL and 32's.

A budget boost is a good idea if you're not planning on taking the Jeep offroad. The Zone 1.75" Coil Spacer Lift will give you the lift you're looking for and it includes bump stops and shocks. If you were looking for a little more lift you can always add the Zone 1.25" Body Lift Kit for a total of 3".

Let me know if you have any questions or if you'd like a quote on anything!

I wonder if a 1.25" body lift would be sufficient to clear 32s? It would be close. Maybe wait and see if you need any bumpstop extension to clear the 32s before deciding on a suspension lift?
