What's your budget, and what mods have you already done to accommodate the 37s?

Man I wish I didnt have a budget... Lol. Most likely guys are going to recommend a long arm lift.

There is a LOT that needs to be looked at when going to a 6" lift. Can I ask why so high? You can do 37's on a 3.5" on the 4drs all day long and have enough clearance.

Also, what year is your JK? 4.10's my be low for your 37's as well. Do you already have them on there?

yes they are already on there and it doesnt preferably HAVE to be 6 but when i go wheeling i need more clearance from rocks and more space for flex. cause with my 2 inch lift there is no room at all for anything. i hope this makes sense lol

Lift options

I replaced my Skyjacker with a Ruty's 6" long arm radius lift. I love it much more than the skyjacker the articulation is great as well as the ride. Not to mention the costumer service is awesome and you can call them for any install help

Well, your lowest points will still be the diffs on the axle. You can change the belly height but you can only get so much flex. For 35's, I think if you got a nice 3.5" lift you would be more than happy.

How does the 37's work on your 4.10's?

I'm running 37" tires with flat fenders on a 3.5" RK Long Arm lift with no clearance problems, but if you are wanting to go that high with a lift, I'd go with the Rock Krawler 5.5" lift.

Here is a couple of links for the mid arm lift that uses the stock control arm mounting points JK 5.5 X Factor System and the long arm JK 5.5 X Factor Long Arm System that requires more work, but a long arm lift is really the way to go with a lift that high.

If you go that high, you will probably need drive shafts and a few other things too for everything to work right.

Which 37's do you have on there? I dont think it would be TOO far of a stretch. Get some aluminum wheels and light 37's and it is doable with a programer. On our 07 2dr, we run heavy 35's without any issues.
