These sections will be based on ADVERTISED HEIGHT not actual height.
Since there are so many different variables for TJ lift setups, if enough people submit pictures, I will try to have different sections for body lifts, fenders...etc.
HERE IS THE FORMAT THAT MUST BE FOLLOWED. IF YOU DO NOT FOLLOW THE FORMAT YOUR ENTRY WILL NOT BE POSTED.
Advertised Lift Height:
Fenders/flares: (Stock, MetalCloak, Xenon, MCE...)
Wheel Size & Backspacing:
Notes: Add a short description of anything extra you had to do, i.e. trimming. Include other details such as SYE, t-case drop, bumpstop extensions, any rubbing or other interference, outboarded shocks...
Post 2 (No more than 2) pictures of your Jeep. One on leveled ground and one flex shot.All photos MUST be attached. NO hotlinks.
Please PM me or Wheelin98TJ your entry, to be added to the thread.

Username: mjmurphy926 Year: 2004 Manufaturer: (2" RE rear spacers, ACOS adjustable front spacers) Advertised Lift Height: 2" Actual Height: 2" Body lift: 1" M.O.R.E. Fenders/flares: Stock Shocks: Skyjacker Hydro 7000 (F-7016, R-7018) Tire size: 32x11.50-15 Wheel Size & Backspacing: 15x8 4" BS Notes: I first installed a Rubicon Express 2" BB lift and 1" MORE BL. I later added a winch and swapped out the front spacers with ACOS spacers due to the extra weight making the front end sag. The ACOSs are adjusted to 3 1/4". The RE lift came with bumpstop extenders which I installed. No TC drop and no rubbing.
Username: Best4x4 Year: 05 LJ 4Spd Auto Manufaturer: JKS/OME/UCF Advertised Lift Height: 2inch suspension and 1 1/2 increase at the skid Actual Height: Need to measure after the UCF Skid Install Body lift: None Fenders/flares: Stock Shocks: OME Tire size: 32inch Wheel Size & Backspacing: OEM Moab 16inch Rims
Notes: The 2inch BB was a breeze (put that on when my dad had the LJ), but with the addition of a winch/bumper I had to use the JKS ACOS setup to make the Jeep sit level. With the UCF "No Body Lift" Transfer Case Skid the only modification I had to make was to the 3rd cat hanger. I had to lower it an inch to keep the exhaust from being pushed up into the floor/aluminum heat shield. Other than that I have no clearance issues.
Username: Photog2000 Year: 2000 Manufaturer: All jeep parts 5.9L V8 ZJ springs up front/ 4.0L TJ front springs in rear Advertised Lift Height: 3" Actual Height: 2.75 front/ 3.25 rear Body lift: None Fenders/flares: (Stock, MetalCloak, Xenon, MCE...) Stock unmodified Shocks: Rough Country 4" hydro Tire size:35X12.50X15
Wheel Size & Backspacing: 15X8 3.75 BS
Notes: I had to add a I added a 2" spacer in the front after the winch and bumper install to level it out quite nicely. Tires rub the sway bar at full lock a little bit. All four will rub the flares when you twist it up to its max flex. I figure they will clearance themselves untill I get tube fenders on. T-case had to be dropped about 7/8" for vibes.
Username: pcwolf Year: 2006 TJ Rubicon Manufacturer: BDS Advertised Lift Height: 2" Actual Height: 2" Body lift: 1/2" Rokmen Fenders/flares: Stock Shocks: BDS Tire size: 245/R75-16 (31") Wheel Size & Backspacing: Stock Moab 16" 5.5" Notes: Had nothing else to do. Stock bumpstops appear adequate to lift (compression cup to axle pad less than exposed shock piston shaft)

Username: erickpl Year: 1997 Manufacturer: OME Advertised Lift Height: 2.5" Actual Height: 2.25" (lots of armor) Body lift: JKS 1.25" Fenders/flares: Stock Shocks: OME HD Tire size: 33x12.5 TrXuS MT's Wheel Size & Backspacing: 15x8" Canyons. 5.5" BS stock, but added SpiderTrax spacers.
Notes: Added SpiderTrax spacers to avoid tire rubbing, but still get a rough ride at full turn. Not sure if rubbing or autolocker getting goofy at full turn. Also added .75" spring spacers up front to level Jeep after bumpers and winch installed. No SYE was needed, but will be added when bellyup is done. Have also added some JKS adjustable control arms.
Username: Kodiak17 Year: 1998 Manufacturer: BDS Advertised Lift Height: 2" Actual Height: 2.75" Body lift: No Fenders/flares: Stock Shocks: BDS 5500 series Tire size: 32x11.50x15 Wheel Size & Backspacing: 15x8 5.25" Notes: Tires rub at full turn. Can stuff the fender. More lift than advertised.
Username: sc00bz Year: 1997 TJ Manufaturer: Rough Country Advertised Lift Height: 3.25" Actual Height: 3.75" Front, 3.5" Rear Body lift: N/A Fenders/flares: Stock Shocks: Rough Country 2.2 Tire size: 33x12.50r15 Wheel Size & Backspacing: 15x8, 3.75"
Notes: I had to adjust my steering stops or I rubbed at full crank. Bumpstops were needed & added. Size was determined by flexing sans springs with a floor jack.
The extra .5" in front was more than likely a result of having the 6 cylinder springs up front rather than the 4 cylinder as well as the factory springs and shots were shot. This will compensate for a winch later on. The extra .25" in the rear was probably a result of shot factory suspension as well. I have not tried running a smaller t-case drop than came with the kit as I installed it at the same time and had no vibes.
