        Bang for buck

        This lift was a good budget built getting the look of a lifted jeep without changing any drive angles.

        4 2004 Wrangler - Spoonman Installation Time: Weekend

        looks good, a few issues

        To start out, they send instructions for for 97-02, even when you order the kit for a 04, a little annoying, but they are almost the same. If you can't figure it out, you probably shouldn't be doing it yourself! Had to make some mods to radiator and they didn't send me any of the radiator studs. The instructions are a little vague in places, and they didn't sent me the 04 4wd shifter addendum. Figured it out, Couple broken bolts as expected, few trips to bolt store got it done! Took all weekend..but,,,IT LOOKS GREAT...WORTH THE $130 ! I added 2.5" suspension lift and now I can reach heaven!! almost could'nt get in my garage tho!! lol, good product but you need to know what you are doing, not for begginers, And you better have time and tools!

        Very complete, quality kit

        I recently purchased and installed this body lift kit. The instructions were well laid out, the kit was complete and I am very glad I bought it. The jeep now looks better and is ready for a slightly taller tire. A simple add-on to hide to ugly of the spacers showing between the runningboards and body and she looks like it came from the factory. Happy, Happy, Happy

        This kit has easy to follow instructions.

        This kit has easy to follow instructions with great reference pictures. Kit had everything needed to complete install to achieve a great look without compromising safety. The only thing I would add to the kit is the 7 plastic push pins for reinstalling the fender well liner.

      I have a 3" suspension lift on my jeep already will this body lift work on my jeep?

      • Yes, you can install both a body lift and a suspension lift. A body lift will not effect the suspension lift.

      I just put 17" rims with 32" tires on my 1997 TJ. The front tires rub on the lower control arm at full turn now. Will this kit raise the lower control bar enough to stop the rub?

      • No, this body lift will not adjust the lower control arm to be clear of of the wheels and tire at full turn.

      Will I be able to put a 34 inch Super Swamper on my Jeep. I was wondering about spacers to change my hub from a four and a half to a five and a half centers. Sorry one more question what would be the cheapest and easiest suspension lift kit to fit my Jeep if the 34 inch Super Swampers won't fit
