Zone 2" body lift

Kind of new here so please bare with me.


Thinking about getting this, would i need to get anything else? How much would the install cost at a local shop? i have 30"s on my jeep now that came with it. (i want new tiers but they just put them on at the dealership so dont want them to go to waste) think that would look good or would it look bad?

Don't do it!!!!!!!

Honestly, anything over 1" body lift is a pain in the *** with re-locators, and fan shroud notching, blah blah. Spend the money on a 1" body lift and a 1" motor mount lift!

I did the JKS 1" mml and daystar 1" bl and couldn't be happier, this also sets me up for a tummy tuck, etc. 2" IMO looks HIDEOUS

I traded mine for a case of Diet Coke.

I don't know if that tells you more about me or the lift...

Depends on what you want and how much you want to spend.

A 2" BL would make any vehicle look retarded, especially with 30" tires.

What's your goal? What size tires do you think you want to end up with? Do you plan on wheeling, or never leaving the pavement? How reliable do you need the Jeep to be?
