A body lift decreases the amount of bump stop needed which increases the amount of compression, which also increases overall suspension travel.


Lifting the Jeep 2.5" and then extending the bump stops 2.5" eliminates all compression that was gained along with eliminating 2.5" of suspension travel. Using flat flares or installing a body allows you to decrease the amount the bump stops need extended.

Ah I interpreted that wrong. I thought you were saying just adding a body lift increases suspension travel. I got ya now.

I'm running at TF 2.5" on my '07. There's plenty of room if I ever want to go up to 35's (running 33's now), especially if I trim or replace the fenders with flat fenders.
