Hybrid lift - TF BB with PolyPerf 3" front springs

Well I went the common route and did the TF BB lift the week I got the Jeep, Couple of weeks later I added a Mopar bumper and a winch so then I was sitting nose down like Bubba-Joe's '84 camaro.
I thought about adding another 3/4" spacer but I figured I'd do it right and talked to GOAT1 about some PP front springs.
Ordered the 3" front springs from polyperformance, had a tracking number the SAME DAY. Those guys rock!
Put them in last night and everything looks great!
Rides great too.
If you want to upgrade your lift a piece at a time, seems like a great way to do it.

Looking great man, nice and level and pretty flexy with those 32's. Looks like that TF BB with good springs up front is a great way to go.

Lowers without the uppers doesn't help you much. You can correct the pinion angle, but you'll find your axle is too far back. Obviously only 2-2.5" of lift it is not going to be as far back as with a 4", but you need the uppers also to dial the geometry in correctly in my view.

update with a couple of days of driving on this setup
it rides a LOT better than before!
the stock front springs just were not up to the added weight of the bumper and winch.
Besides looking kind of silly, the sag was all coming out of suspension travel so the front was bottoming quite a bit.
Handles better, rides better, looks better and flexes better.
Definitely worth it!

more weird hybridness......
added rear PP 3" springs and ditched the TF rear spacers a couple of months ago, but with a stock crap plastic rear bumper and real front bumper/winch combo I was back to mega rake


I drove it for awhile since then to settle the rear springs but its still pretty slanted
sooooo since tires are going to have to come before a 'real' rear bumper to level it out and since I have 2 full sets of TF 2.5" spacers sitting around, I decided to put the front spacers back in with the springs.
If I can't sag the back, I'll lift the front a little more.
I have one side done and decided to come in a take a cooloff break before I go tackle the other side, but it looks like that's gonna level it right out.
I'll post pics when I'm done.

So you ended up with 3" Springs front/back with 2.5 tera front spacer in the front? Total 5.5 inches front and 3 inches back? Looks almost level... Guess once you throw on a bigger spare and the rear bumper you can pull the front spacer but then you will lose some height.. But bigger tires will add some back.. Looks good.. Did you have to add trackbars or brackets to correct the axle? What about brake line extensions or control arms?

according to the info coming from the suspension lift measurement thread, it looks like I'm about 5.5" front and 4.5" rear
What amazes me is that most of the 3.5"-4" lifts are about the same amount
as far as trackbars, I'm running a BDS frame side drop bracket in back and nothing up front.
Drives great on and off road, but I'll prob still add an adj track bar up front eventually.
Brake lines are also stock, with TF drop brackets in the back. At full droop, they get taut, but not dangerously so. The PP synergy shocks stop the droop before it puts too much stretch on things.
I'll do SS extended lines all the way around eventually too.
Also prob need to do front sway bar links at some point too, I'm running the stock rear links up front with longer rear links- per the TF BB kit, but at full droop they come too close to being bale to pop backwards for my liking.
I may just cut, sleeve and weld them to extend them or replace with adjustables. Haven't decided yet.
Overall, I'm very happy with the setup.
Performs great in the rocks and my dad who is pretty much against mods rode with me on fathers day and said he thought it rides better than stock on road.

Nice Venom... Looks like I'll be following your set up exactly. I have the Poly 2" Springs currently, but will be upgrading to the 3"... Glad you posted your set up and answered my questions.. With the 2" I sit at 24.5" back and 23.5" front. But I don't have a winch yet. I'll prob only need a 1" spacer to level the front out.. Looking good.. Did you put 35's on yet?

glad I could help!
it's kind of a mutant hybrid evolving thing, but it works!
not on 35"s yet
actually I jammed a stick through one of the stock 32"s so I bought 1 35x12.50 mud grappler so far and trimmed the crappy rear bumper so I could carry it on the stock mount.

The others will come soon!
