Lift kit for 32\" BFG T/As, Body or Susp.?

Greetings,

I have just discovered this BBS, as I am the new owner of a '97 Sport that has a set of 31x10.5 BFG MT on their last legs.

I am planning on going to the 32x11.5 BFG TAs soon, but need to find the best value for lifting out there. I am not very knowledgeble (sp?) about these things since I have just purchased the vehicle, but I am eager to learn more.

I would appreciate any insight you might have. Your time and consideration are appreciated.

Grapehead,

Thanks for the rapid reply. I do ask that you pardon my ignorance, but is your response "c0i1 5pac3rz" a product code for a lift kit?

I would appreciate any further input you have.

Welcome!
lol, that's computer language for "coil spacers". That's the cheap way to fit 32's on a tj, or a body lift. You can put a 1" body lift on and get enough room, or some 3/4" coil spacers, both will cost you about the same. Check around ebay and the jeeps unlimited for sale forum. Coil spacers are always floating around on both and you can get them for about 1/2 price used. HTH

yeah sorry about the non english reply. brain is fried.
as a new jeep owner there are several things you need to do:
subscribe to jeep catalogs:
quadratec 1-800-745-5337
4wheel drive hardware 1-800-333-5535

read jeep and offroad mag's, my prefs:

sift through teh internet to get every single bit of jeep knowledge possible.

within months you will know more about jeeps than you ever thought youd want to.

Re: Lift kit for 32\" BFG T/As, Body or Susp.?

Thanks for your advice. When I read your post, I slapped my own forehead and laughed at myself. Even as a grad student, I am learning more 'computer-speak' every day.

I checked out ebay and decided to go with a 1" body lift, which cost me around $50. My next question is this: as a new Jeep owner and beginning mechanic, should I attempt to install this kit by myself, or should I take it to a shop to have it done professionally?

Thanks again for everyone's help. My Jeep, this BBS and it's members will make a manly man outta me one of these days!

Go for it! If you don't have the tools, go ahead and get em cause you're gonna need them eventually. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] That's a good way to get started learning.

i personally dont care for the body lift.
if its a 3 inch, then it moves the shifters too low for my taste. you could always get an extended shifter.....
for value, u cant beat the body lift. no susp. travel gains though.
