Body Lift Questions??

ALright, i think im getting the body lift this weekend, the only problem is if my dad feels that it changes handling or anything in a bad way that i will have to take it off and i have just lost some money. So, can you all tell me if it changes handling or anything? this is going to be a 2-3 inch lift. Also, if anyone knows any kits that have everything needed on a big body lift like i want(like linkage extenders and stuff) please tell me. THanks

Re: Body Lift Questions??

It won't change handling, but it will make you more prone to rollover (change the COG.)

3" lift is alot. Your just asking for problems.
I'd only go max 2".

Body lifts are really more like a cheap suppliment for suspention lifts, to make that 3 1/2" lift into a 4 1/2" lift.


Your not going to go add a 4" body lift so you can fit those 33's under you.

Re: Body Lift Questions??

No, im not doing a 4 inch body lift, im eather doing 2 or 3, and this is not permenant, it is temporary till i turn 18 and can do whatever the hell i want to my jeep. I just want to be able to go wheeling and not screw the crap out of my fenders and still have flex. Also, if anyone has any tj rear flares they wouldnt mind getting rid of, please tell me, thanks

Re: Body Lift Questions??

the body lift will not change handling and as far as the COG and rollovers go. you are less prone to roll with a 3 inch body lift than you are with a 2 inch suspension lift. with a body lift you aren't lifting the engine,tranny,tcase or frame any higher. that means there is less weight up top and more down below.
