Was just concerned about one popping off mid-turn or something.
Unlikely, especially on a Jeep. Remember, I had these on an RX-7 (sports car) and took some pretty hard/fast turns with those installed. Just be sure to have a second / lock nut added to the threaded bolts so they don't work their way loose.
2008 2-dr Rubicon, auto,
RK 2.5" Max Travel, Rancho 9000XL shocks, 37" Nittos, 5.38's, RR skids, Warn VR8000-S.
RIPP Gen 2 Stg 2 Supercharger. Political Correctness offends me.
This still looks like a 1.25" or a 1.5" body lift block, on a stock rubber body mount to me. Taking it out is the cheapest solution, maybe not the easiest, for a quick 1.5" or so drop. Half a day project at most (without figuring in the beer factor)

Reason: used the wrong pic
In the meantime, I knew a guy that had a similar problem and put two bags of 60lb concrete in the rear and one 60lb on the floor in the back seat. It was just enough to make it in his garage. You could also use some weights. Just make sure you strap whatever it is down in case of an accident, etc.
I think I might just pull the trigger on the proper springs. Will I have to change anything else? I read something earlier that said some shocks are for a certain amount of lift. If my shocks are too long then that's more money to spend...
Also, apparently there are lower points in my garage than I was aware of. Caught the top of the jeep on a part of a pipe... put a good dent in it and tore part of the soft top.
