Got this idea from another thread.
It seems the latest idea in TJ's is to have as little lift as you need. While maximizing the ground and tire clearance.
Let's see what ya got out there.
List your lift, susp and body, tire size, and height at the following points.
Bottom of front bumper

Side seam

Skid

frame at rear lower control arm


I'm running 2.5" susp, 1" body and 36" TSL radials
23", 42", 18", 20"

Looks good I only ask because I am in the market to buy a TJ.

I don't have all the measurements but this is how it was 3" suspension 35's.
I am putting full widths and 38's on but keeping the same lift with a comp cut, wheelbase stretch and a 1" BL.

I Just ran out and took a couple quick measurments on mine..

Bottom of the front bumper was 25.5"
Bottom of my rock rail is 26.5"
and bottom of my skid is 17"

running 37's with a 3" susp lift and 1.5" BL

here's a crappy pic

I'd love to. it would buy me a 1/2" more clearance. only problem is I'd have had to cut the floor out to fit the STaK in. :shaking: :D
That's why I'm trying to decide about a STaK. I'm doing 3 1/2 suspension,
Campbells hood and cutting the shit out of the rear to fit 37's.

The STaK will fit with a stock skid and no body lift. A little custom floor pan work with a 2# sledge for the '02 and older TJ's. If you have a belly up. Count on a BL and mabey a TC drop.

First thing you need for a ''low riding'' TJ is too remove those skidplate spacers. IMO:flipoff2:
you're right but don't worry I am building a custom skid and will have the proper driveshaft angle after the wheelbase stretch. It was a bandaid fix to get me out of the garage at the time
