Why? You just want bigger tires? Go with a 2 inch spacer lift and if you want, a 1.25 body and MML, Then you won't have to do any mods to the drivetrain.

37x12.5x17 MTR's - Rock Krawler 3.5"
Coils - custom length X-Factor arms - Synergy steering -Rancho 5000X shocks - Adams front driveshaft - Ether LED headlights.

you've already got replies in your other posts regarding a 2" body lift...also do a search for lifts. You'll find more info that way instead of posting the same topic and waiting for replies

Don't go with more than 1" for a body lift. A 1" can cause its own minor shifting problems with the transmission and transfer case. A 2" or 3" body lift causes way more problems, especially with both shifters and the fuel lines.

When talking body lifts, I'd never go with anything taller than 1" unless it was due to some major beneficial upgrade like to a tummy tuck or Atlas II transfer case that needed more space and was worth all the extra work and problems caused by a 2" body lift. There's not a reason in the world I would ever go with or recommend a 3" body lift.
When you have a choice, buy American.

X2 of what Jerry said. Body lifts from rokmen 1/2", mountain offroad 1", or jks 1.25" the last being the most popular height I have seen used.

I saw a 3 " body lift the other day it looked way goofy!

I would never go more then 1.25" I have a 1" bl now and that's really all I need for the skids I am going with. 2" is not a good idea! If you want more lift then a 1" then save for a descent 2" or 2.5" spring lift . There are some good budget kits out there. Just be patient and you will end up with a better end result.
