Lifting this TJ ????

I just installed some new bumbers front and rear and added a winch. I added 31 inch tires and would like to add a lift. Should I do a BB to lift and level it out or the RC 2.5? If I do the RC will it level the front up a bit.

dont have a pic with the winch yet but it sits about 1/2 inch lower in the front.

I think a combination of the two would be best actually. I would do the RC 2.5 to give you more capability off road. But I would also add a BB to the front to level it out too. Depending on how much front end rake (every jeep has some to begin with) you have from the added bumper and winch is how much of a BB I would add in the front.
The easiest way to determine how much front end rake is to simply get a tape measure, measure the front and rear. Then determine how much of a difference there is in height between the two. Since you have a winch and an after-market bumper, I would guess that you would need about a two inch BB in the front to level it out.
hope it helped,

Jeepin isn't a hobby, its an obsession

RC 2.5" lift and add 3/4" spacers up front.You won't want it more level than that.
