I like the TAG Flares but you have to make sure you drill the holes in the right place or it will not look right every happy with them. THANKS

Looks great. Funny because I was thinking of getting the same tires and Im glad you posted pics so I can see what they look like in my size. I was also contemplating those flares but new fenders are in order first. Nice wheels too but Id be too scared to take them off the pavement. Wouldn't want to wreck them.

Why the wheel spacer. The tire from the front shot looks to be around a 3.75 back space. Just guessing. Does it rub when you turn. I've never been a fan of wheel spacers.

Nice looking rig. I like the paint with those rims.

Well as you can see by the looks of the jeep I will be adding the spacer for mere looks. I think the wide the better they say the high you go, you should go just has wide. I think it will look great as this jeep is going to be used 90% on the street and some times in the woods for some hunting. Thanks for the comments.

I was just wondering on the spacer. I went 4" suspension. 1" body and 33" tires. I went with a 3.75 back spacing on the rims for a wider stance. Doesn't make it right or wrong. It's just what I did. It handles well in the turns and on the off ramps.

I agree if your going up you better get wider.

Here's a couple pics.

Thanks for the comments on the jeep Always Stuck. I have been watching your's for the last 2 months looks awesome. I should let you know that I have done all the work to it from a wheelchair. I cant believe how good it looks and it is not even mine. It is for my son who is in the army and has no clue I am doing this to it. I have been playing "pimp my ride". It seams like everyone like so I hope he does. THANKS AGAIN.

I don't think you'll have any problems with him liking it. You not only have good taste, I'll throw in talent also. Can't be that easy to work from a wheel chair. Hat's off to you.

Tell your son Thank You for his service and stay safe.

All right Boys the 4" lift kit is on. with the 1 1/2" spacers. I still have to put the new pit-man arm on and drop the transfer case down. But all in all it think it looks great Hope you like.

There is nothing wrong with the rims, he was just saying that he thinks you should go with a larger wheel like a 17. 15s are fine and commonly run. dont worry

as for the body lift, alot of people think anything above an inch or so is ugly. I think it looks fine, I havent seen any shots of the body lines underneath/in the wheel wells yet though. I know a guy I know has a 3 inch body and it gives it size but is very ugly. I think your set up is very nice, and your doing a great job!

Dont worry about XJ he wasnt being rude just pokin around, hes a good guy.

17's oh geez no lol.. If you think the tires will ever be aired down for any offroading, 15x8's with a 3.75-4in bs are what are recomended for a 12.5 wide tire.. When you air down 10in rims have a tendency to break the bead much easier than the 8in rim.. It will be fine just make sure the tires if the jeep goes offroad doesn't get aired down to much. Those are nice rims and I would hate to hear of them getting damaged..

As to the BL.. Anything over 1.25 not only can make the jeep look akward, but it also creates a unnesasary higher center of gravity. But in the end it's all about instalation.. Witch you already did and it actually looks OK on that YJ.. The issue has to do with the various extentions you have to do with break lines and gas lines to make it work. Only two points to a BL.. 1. to clear tires a little more. 2. to add a tummy tuck witch is only a TJ/LJ application. Since you already got the BL in your YJ, if done the right way it will be fine and looks pretty good actually.. It's just frowned upon by manny to go over 1.25in due to the complications that it can cause..

In the end though the jeep looks really good.. Just be careful with airing down those tires if you ever plan to do so..

Looks great man! I'm not too big of a fan of body lift either but I like it on your jeep. I hope you don't have any linkage or shifting problems when you drop the tcase. Because that's now a 3 inch gap from how it originally was.

Looks gnarly! He's going to love it.

As for body lifts, do whatever you think will work. Sometimes it's one of those he said she said type of deals. I know it does create a higher center of gravity, but if someone is in the situation to flip...odds are the body lift wouldn't have made a difference.

Also, one thing about the wheel spacer. You are going to put more wear on your unit bearings, so pay attention to those. Otherwise, rock on man!

Let's not get carried away here. If his son uses the jeep to off road all the time, then ya, a ten inch rim would not be the best way to go when he airs down. (But that's never been said) If he uses it as a daily driver, the setup is fine and looks fantastic. As far as a 2" BL and center of gravity, what's the difference if he went with a 6" lift in stead of a 4" and 2" body. (Nothing) Lift is lift, Body or suspension. He may have to trim the floor if it's a 5 speed with the 2" lift, as long as he likes the end result,(and I do) that's all that counts.. He's on the right track saying that lift equals a wider stance. To me, up equals out for safety. Some call it old school, I call it safe. As far as the wheel spacers, I've never been a fan. I agree keep an eye on the front end. But looking at the pictures, he could probably take the spacers out if needed and be fine. That rim looks like it had enough back spacing to run the lift.

With that being said, I'm no pro at this but, I think he did a hell of a job. I'd be proud to drive it.

Haha oh dang man, that completely went over my head at the time... of course you meant width lol. I was thinking "wtf is he talkin about, 10 in rims? he must be using hyperbole..." LOL. okay,. I see your point, thanks for explaing. as mentioned not everyone airs down, but for a regular off roader, your point is very valid. and I agree as the the BL. The high center of gravity is the same as with a 6 inch vs a 4 inch lift as mentioned bellow, but there are some differences. like the suspension lift lifts everything above the axles, the BL lifts the body ovbiously. So you must realise that while a suspension lift will absorb more of the force when in a roll over situation(higher speed, on road), a BL actually lifts a little less weight. however a bodylift makes it easier to roll (when wheeling) because it places the weight higher and cannot flex like with the height from a suspension lift.

I read this big huge thread on here somewhere that compared the two types of lifts and advantages and disadvantages and the one thing that suprised me was that a BL and suspension lift really end up being no worse at increasing center of gravity than another.

So if i were to air down what tire pressure should I go to. In Florida were i live we have nothing but mud and swamp. so airing down wont be happening but if i go on some rock trails what pressure do you go to. Also thanks for the comments everyone Thanks.
