Body lift pics?

Hi all,
Does anyone have pics of a 2" body lift on wagoneer.
I'm mainly wanting to see if the separation between body and frame is noticeable and silly. (side, front on, and rear).
What are your opinions on how it looks?

I cant comment on the ride quality yet but I just installed a 3 inch leaf spring lift on 31's . Looks pretty good but personally a little too tall for me. I've been told that they will settle. Rough Country is very good value.

Used to be a member on here with body lift that had the frame separate from the body in a wreck. The body rolled down the shoulder of the road a ways from the frame. Split in two parts very cleanly. Just FYI.

^That was a tall body lift if I recall correctly^

That was one wicked accident. Just looked that up recently... I think the frame was in 2 different pieces and the whole drive train (engine, transmission, transfer case)ripped out and was sitting next to the body when everything settled.

A 2" body lift... I don't think it would look ridiculous but I wouldn't go more than that. Well, to be honest I wouldn't do a body lift. I like how tucked in the frame is and would rather use the suspension to lift it.

It'd probably look about like how my suburban looks. You can see the frame when walking up to the side of the vehicle, but the whole frame isn't sticking out...

To be honest I'd be interested in a body lift not for looks, but to a) replace the clapped out original bushings and b) to have more room when working on... anything really. 1 or 2" would be perfect.
