Lift kit combos

I just finished installing a leveling solutions/fat boys garage 2 inch suspention lift kit. Im looking to be able to run 32x11.5x15's with zero rubbing on trails. My main question is should i go with a 1.25 inch body lift, or a 2 inch body lift? I want zero rubbing on the trails with the 32's.

So far im very happy with the suspention lift kit. It was $300 plus shipping, and came with pro comp 1000 shocks, 2 inch spring spacers, extended front QD sway bar links, extended bump stops, and a 1 inch transfer case drop. It lifted the suspention a full 2 inches with zero issues. Now im just trying to decide on which body lift to run for my 32's to fit with enough room to be 100% safe.

Also, anyone have any input on the install and/or potential issues with the various (1-2inch) body lifts?

i would take out your t-case drop kit, that is not enough hight to require the use of one, get your ground clearance back!

and i would run a 1" BL and you should be happy with the offroad performance. With BL's cometimes you have to extend the 4wd shift linkage, if so the kits will come with it.

Well one factor you have not mentioned... what kind of rims are you running and what is the backspacing on them? That will play a big part in not rubbing.

Im still a newb myself but in my searching for my lift combo I read some where that a BL of anything >1.25" can be troublesome if you have AC due to needing to extend lines.

Run a 1.25 bl. A 2in suspension lift and a tummy tuck. 3.75-3.5" of backspacing on the rims. You will be golden.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.
