Default Small lift to the WJ

While I was in MI a few weeks ago, 1x1_Speed_Craig and I put a 2" budget boost on my WJ. We hit a few bumps, but it turned out really well. Now when it's time for tires, I can finally buy those 31's!

Thanks Craig, it wouldn't have happened without your help.

What it started out looking like:


First problem, them damn covers Chrysler puts on the lug nuts...


Everything in front disconnected. The front took the longest...


Just in case you think I stood by and just drank beer..


Craig didn't stand and watch either...


Trying to get the broken bump stop bolt out...


Front in...


Finished look... I was TIRED!


Not so little anymore...


Next summer at Silver Lake should be more fun!!

Since this is my DD and I commute 40 miles one way to work and drive back and forth from VA to MI at least 4 times a year, I don't have a desire to put a larger lift on.

Once the 31's go on, it will be just as I want it. The best part is I managed to find the BB on Ebay for $100. I don't have a ton of money to spend on lifts so this fit my budget perfectly.
