TJ Lift Setups

Here's a variety of TJ's with different lift setups. (still in the works)

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.

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.

Budget Boost/Homebrew

Zone

Username:Andy1119
Year: 2006 LJ
Manufacturer: Zone BB
Advertised Lift Height: 1.75"
Actual Height: 1.75 front, 2" rear
Body lift: none
Fenders/flares: Stock
Shocks: Zone Nitro's (stiff but like em)
Tire size: Stock 30x9.5's for now
Wheel Size & Backspacing: Stock Ravine
Notes: (No transfer case drop) Rides like stock, or better!





JKS/RE

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.

JKS/OME

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.

Homebrew

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.

3"-3.5"

Rough Country

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.
