The auto is doing very good (knock on wood) it's my first auto in a TJ/LJ. I really enjoy the smoothness off road.

I like the way the Willys looks and I'm glad to hear that it rides well as I don't want to go from a decent ride to a horrible one. So the body lift doesn't create the shifting problems and such?

Not at all.Most BL kits come with everything needed for a perfect install for around $100.A 1.25" BL won't create any problems.BL's don't create driveline vibes or any other problems,unless you go above 2"s(steering/shifting) and then they suck.

How many miles on it? I loved my 3 speed auto and both of my 4 speed autos and even thought they were good with big tires and the OD OFF.My highest mileage 4 speed auto had 56,000 and was great.I'm recovering from surgery and looking for another Jeep (#7).A local woman has an electric lime green Rubi and I'm trying to buy it from her.Where I live in a rich college town(University of Virginia),Jeeps sell for crazy prices.I got $10,000 for my 98' with 96,000 miles. It was perfect and pretty though.

That is a sweetie.
It has 137k, 2"BB and 32s. Od off on the uphills and it runs pretty good. I will probably regear when a diff goes.

I'm jealous.Lime green LJ or Rubi is my next Jeep.My GF doesn't like green,so that's what I want.

Good one. I am a bit color blind so I had to get a couple of opinions before I picked this one up.

Spacers and body lift on 33's.It rode very good.

x2. this is the same setup i'm running now. it'll be that way for a while to as i'm saving to do a long arm, 35's, alloy wheels, SYE/CV, and a d44 for the rear. works very well, no shifting issues, but its easy to adjust the linkage if you run into any.

Will I need new sway bar links when I do this, or do I just need the spacers, bump stop extensions, shocks,and body lift?

Would it be good to go ahead and do a motor mount lift or is that not needed?

Factory sway bar stuff on mine. I didn't need a motor mount lift. May do that when I put a body lift on. I had trouble with the 32x11.5 R15 tires I chose rubbing the rear spring perches due to the slight axle shift but the 5 Craiger Soft 8s I scored for $95 plus $40 to dismount and mount cured that.

I'm looking at ordering a spacer lift now. Do I need the alignment cam kit?
