03 TJ Wrangler Body Roll Question

Yes the wife decided she needed a Jeep too: so hear i go again!!!!!


The Question i have is I installed a 4" skyjacker lift and 33" tires, the problem is that i have alot of body roll (alot more than i think would be comfortable for her)

Do you experts have any suggestions?????

If you need some more info please post and i will get back to you, i just didn't want to spend alot of cash quessing on how to fix it!!!

Thanks Tim

Why is it that after you get stuck everyone helps you out then tries to make it though the same spot???

I agree with you on the body roll.. I recently passed on a great deal on a lifted TJ because I knew my wife would be driving it also. As for how to fix it, I am not real sure. If she wants a CJ Ive got one for sale.

If the sway bars are still connected there's not a lot more you can do that's practical - bigger sway bars or put the suspension back to stock. Or teach her to drive it like a lifted Jeep.

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.

For some reason the Skyjackers seem to have more roll than most.
Which system did you use - long/short arm, etc
Body lift?
Still using the sway bars? Front and rear?

My RE LA corners flat, almost like on a rail. So flat you push it - till the inside wheels lift! It's like flat, then Oh Sh--.
