    Default Budget Boost v2.0

    Finished up the spring spacer lift tonight. I don't have the rear shocks mounted yet as I'm waiting on new bolts. The right rear shock has two broken bolts still hanging. I'm gonna take it to a local shop and have them drill them out for me. Did the BB just to give me enough height to run 33s. I'm pretty sure I'll rub at flex and hopefully the 1.25" BL going on next week will help with that. Anyway, here he is.




    And the boys side by side, 33s on the LJ and 35s on the YJ.

    looks great. I ran a 2" bb and 1" bl for almost 2 years with 33x12.5 tires and it worked out very well for me.

    Don't plan on really driving it with no rear shocks. Shocks missing off of a leaf spring rig versus a coil spring rig are two totally different animals. You can get away with it on leaf springs, but with coil springs it'll be like you are trying to drive a pogo stick. Not safe at all. Ask me how I know.

    Don't really plan on it. Only driving it the 2 miles to the shop this morning.

    The air chisel is your friend for removing broken shock mounting bolts. The easy way to do it is to use the air chisel to knock off the welded nuts then put on some bolts/nuts with big washers. Good luck with it.
