im about to buy my first jeep!!! a 2009 2dr wrangler X im so excited i cant sleep at night haha!! but im going to put 35" mud grapplers under it. i was wondering if i should do a 5" suspension lift or a 4" suspension lift with a 1" body lift? it will be my daily driver but will also see its fair share of off roading.
i have a rubicon and 35's with a 3" bds lift and it rubbed the front splash panel under the bumper at full turn . added 1" daystar spacers and that cured the problem . with 35's you will definately need a gear swap. the rubicon already has lower gears than the x and my 35's sucked the life out of the motor.
yeah i really dont care about mpg but i can not afford a rubicon can i get the rubicon gear package on the X before i buy it? and i know i can fit 35s under a 3" lift but i really like the look of a 5 and how much does one of those spacers run?
