2.5 or 4" lift?

i currently have a 2 body lift installed, i want to eventually run 35s. i was thinking of running a 2.5 ome lift and putting on mce fenders to clear the 35s. will that set up have good flex? Should i just skip the 2.5" lift and go for a 3.5, 4"? it is my daily driver (for now, been thinking of another truck just to save miles on jeep) i go off road every chance i get with a yearly trip to the hill country. i want to be able to go mudding one day, rock crawl the next and get grocerys on the way home, a multipurpose vehicle that can do it all. if need be i can and will trim down the body lift. any input or opinions please

I would get rid of the 2 inch body lift for beginners as there are many other combos that you can do to get the lift you want and still perform on the road the way you would like. If you want to run 35 inch tires you need a lot more than just a lift or you are in for trouble. Try a 2 inch suspension lift along with a 1.25 inch body lift and from there you can put on the flat fenders but you still need some serious attention to other parts if you are going to run 35 inch tires.

i know i need to regear, slip yoke, and better brakes. its all going to be a slow work in progress. an i don't mind paying extra for good quality parts, it just won't be a fast process.

Take a look at Zone off road they make nice affordable lifts. If you must keep the body lift you are still going to need 4" if you want to flex it hard. Flat fenders would be something to look at though because your going to start getting a little high. IMO
