fitting 35's, what lift?

Well after getting rid of my 89' samurai w/38's, I feel weird driving around in a stock height yj. So since this is my first jeep want lift will fit 35's? I'm looking around a $500-$700 budget. I checked rough country and they have a 4" kit for $500. So I was figuring a 1" body lift with that would clear them. Correct me if I'm wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Also if any one has this setup please post some pics. Thanks again.

yea, especially a (rough country)

you will see a difference between a crap lift "rc" and a rubicon express lift.

both being a 4" lift, there is still a big difference in performance, look, quality.

ya git what ya pay for.

curious, you were runnin 38's on stock suzuki axles??

you gunna need 6" lift to clear 35's fo a yj

do a 4" suspension and 2" body lift if ya dont wanna trim

rough country makes a decent yj kit. you won't be able to do it for $500, but the best way to get the lift you want is soa.

I have 4.5" of lift and a 2" BL with 35s. And I had to extend the bumpstps 3" in the front and 2" in the rear to avoid rubbing in full flex.

tj seems to require about 1" less lift than a yj to fit 35's also.

No not on stock samurai axles. I had a set of 84' toyota pickup axles in it with 4.10's. Instead of buying a kit what I'm going to do is pick up some 2.5" lift springs, do a spoa on 44's, pick up a sye and fab everything else. This way I'll be close to $500+/- since I already have the 35's. My buddy recently lifted his yj spring over with stock springs and a 2" body lift and he clears 35's with room to spare.

Rough country recently improved their springs so they are alot better now, the cheapest why to fit 35's on a YJ would be:
Rough Country 4 inch lift $450+shipping, 2 inch body lift $79+shipping and TJ flares $100(used).

Dont be afriad of the YJ Rough Country lift, most of these guys that will bash them have never had one, or atleast had one of the new improved ones that they began to produce about 6 months ago.

They built a stronger spring. I am not the designer, I just bought a set of the new ones and are happy with them. I agree the old ones do suck, new "improved" ones are better.
