    Trade it on one with a lift installed = not buying a lift

    Essentially no. You can do a body lift but going much over 1 to 2" is not advisable. If you wanted you could do a 2" budget boost and a 2" body lift. That will get you 4" but it's not the best performing way to do it.

    That won't work he doesn't want to buy lift kits.
    There is no such thing as a stupid question, If you don't know the answer. As long as you keep telling yourself that, I am laughing with you and not at you

    i'm assuming he's trying to avoid spending a few grand to get 4" but is willing to spend at least a few hundred. If the plan is to get 4" without buying anything then the short answer is no. the TJ uses coil springs not torsion bars, you can't just crank the bar for a free lift that rides like hell.

    Why do you want a lift? Looks? Function? Small penis? These are all valid reasons, but the reason will be the deciding factor in how this is approached.

    Buying lift components individually will prevent you from buying an entire kit at once
    But our trip was different. It was to be a classic affirmation of everything right and true in the national character. A gross physical salute to the fantastic possibilities of life in this country. But only for those with true grit.

    And we are chock full of that, man!

    I have a 2002 TJ with 4" of lift. 2" coil spacers and 2" body lift but like others have said don't go more than 2" on the body lift. I run 33's and have regeared to 4.56. I've had this "lift" on the Jeep since 2005 and it's my daily driver and I've wheeled many times without any issues. In my opinion, 2+2 is the way to go if you want to to add 4" of lift but not buy a suspension lift kit.
    '02 TJ, 2" body lift, 2" coil spacers, 33"x12.5" Goodyear Duratracs, 15x8 Pro Comp matte black aluminum rims, D30/D35 regeared with 4.56 gears, Bushwacker Flat Fender Flares, Warn Rock Crawler Front Bumper, Poison Spyder Rocker Knockers, hprtech custom rear bumper with swing out tire carrier, 48" Hi-Lift, Hard Top, Soft Top, Safari, Wrap Around Windjammer, Tonneau and trail cover.
