Im trying to get an idea of what to do with mine. It has 3" BL and 3" suspention. I dont really like that big of a BL but do like the height of the jeep. Im running 33x13.5 TSL's. Adding shackles and taking out the BL I think it will look better. Any ideas anyone?

Well I dont want to get new springs, I bought the jeep like this . I was thinking of taking the BL down to 1" and adding 2" shackle to the already 3" springs and that should give me the hieght back with a better look. Think that will look ok?

That would be the best solution for the best price.

Default lift

flipping the axles to the bottom side of the spring should gain about 3-4 in of lift. if you have a welder it should be cheep also. you can then pitch the bl or go down to 1in. that long of shackles would worry me. the only thing with the under spring setup is you are more likly to have a wheel hop issue

95 YJ, SOA front (5.5") Coil rear (6") and a 1" body lift on 35's

TJ flares help quite a bit.

Actually you'll get more than 5" by doing a SOA and if you do it right, it's not all that cheap. You don't want to just flip your existing springs, you need to change them. Plus, shocks change, driveshafts change, steering changes.

Not really a good pic but the only one handy. Rubicon express SOA axles + 2" body lift & 35" tires.



It's not really about the body lift, it's about the overall package. Here it is linked sitting on 40's. Still has the 2" body lift. Personally, I like the body lift as it allows keeping the frame/drivetrain lower but allows less trimming, access between the frame and body, etc. It's great to be able to put a power washer between the frame and body to do a good cleanup. Also surprising how often it's good for wrench access.

I agree! trim the body to 2" and trim the fenders. You can fit 35 on a stock jeep if you just trim the fenders. I have a 98 tj with 1" body and 4" suspension with 39's. Rememer that lower is better for offroad.

I think I will trim The 3" BL down to 1" and call it good. I like the way your guy's jeep look. I dont like my 3" BL. Makes it look like the body is floating off the frame. To much gap. Thanks for all the pics and info. It helps me on what I want to do.
