Unless you are running 34" tires or bigger you don't need a body lift. A quick suspension lift of an inch or two would easily run 31". Lift coils and/or spacers for the rear and crank the front torsion bars to match. Probably don't even need an alignment for an inch of lift.

Send you pictures to make it easier on you? Who do you think you are that you can just demand that people do all the work for you?

Did you just come here straight from occupying Wallstreet?

Figure it out yourself.

i was thinking the same thing abt a body lift that it wud make it top heavy lol just never put a lift on before neway so urs has a three in suspension lift with 35's rite soo did u have to buy an actual lift kit or did u just change the springs and mess with the t bars:?

A 3" suspension lift is fine. I wouldn't go much higher than that. If you are going to run 35s I recommend a combination of 3" suspension lift and body lift. I have a 1" body lift and 3" suspension lift for my 35s.

But you should probably regear if you run 35s. 33s are more liveable with stock gears.

If you do go 3" suspension lift you will want to do a ball joint flip to correct camber changes, possibly a spacer there also. Independent4x has them. Also, an alignment.

Stock 245/70 tires are about 29.5" diameter. so going to 31" will get you additional 3/4" ground clearance.

Is this a USA 93 RS two door? ...

Regardless, 1st & 2nd gen troopers both came with 31x10.50x15's as an option. The only difference was the wider alloy rims (in place of skinnier steele rims) & a gear ratio adjustment in the differentials. The suspension height wasn't changed. Get a set of snowflakes, or any 15x7" rim & enjoy the 31s. Lift not needed.

If you want to lift it, crank the torsion bars 2" & get some OME heavy duty springs.

If you want to get a bit more articulation out of the 1st end, well... most wknd warriors never see obsticals that will have you that far off camber.

No, all 2nd gens came with 245/70/16 tires. First gens did have the "Big Tire" option.

So then how did 2nd gen troopers adjust the speedo for the 4.77s? Diff plastic gear on the VSS?

For people who are totally new to the Isuzu world even the nomenclature can be a little confusing this may help. OME stands for Old Man Emu they make the coils springs for Troopers. Independent 4X is a shop that caters to Isuzus and can supply most after market stuff thats available for Isuzus. Ball joint flip is more like reposition the ball joint the BJ is moved from the top of the upper control arm to the underside of it. Torsion bars are tightened by turning a large bolt counter clock wise (that is when you are laying on your back looking up) that is located about midway on the inside of the frame on both sides it uses a 11/16" socket. Do this with the front wheels off the ground. Goodluck Dave

4.77s were not an option for 2nd gens, unfortunately.

Actually, you should sell that 2 door and buy a 4 door. The 2 doors are no good for off road, way too tipsy because of their short wheelbase.

I will buy it if you decide to sell it, since they are no good and all.
