Good plans, you'll still need the longer bumpstops though.

True. too bad zone didn't give me what I needed with the lift. Ah well this is what money is for right. To spend.

So, is it really unwise to do a 3"lift with 35's and trimmed flares? I have a 2004 TJ unlimited and like the larger tires but I don't always like the look of a high lift, esp when the jeep is my daily driver. However, I want to avoid rubbing and wheel well issues off-road. Is a 4"lift better for 35's?

Extremely bad idea. Most people go 4" and 33s. I have 3.75" of lift and 33s myself. If you don't want to go tall maybe you should look into highline or flat fenders. With those you can run 35s with 2" of lift.

2.5in sl with a 1.25 bl and hi-line fenders should do the trick i'd think

Check out my Jeep, 2" lift and 33x12.50 tires, only rub the arm on a full turn, (if you cut the wheel hard all the way in one direction) Off road they haven't rubbed on me once.

How about at max flex? I stuff my 33x12.50s pretty good and I know GoldenSahara00 does too and he has ~5" of lift.

LCOG is slowly moving in as a big alternative to the typical you need 4" lift ideas.

Like stated before anything is possible with time, money, and fab skills.

40"s have been fit under 3" of total lift and its works great on the trails out west. Its proven both ways work.

What year is the jeep in your profile pic. Look like Dozer. One of the 2012 colors. That's what I'm getting. Mine ships from the factory this Thursday. Been a long 6 weeks. Sigh....

Yeah, I stuff 33s with a little over 5 inches up front and around 4.5 in the rear. And this is funny because me and jerry were talkin in this thread about me doing all the mods to my jeep that I have now done. awh. its heart warming.

Stuffed up front



the rear isnt quite as bad, still working on improving my flex back there.

Heres some LCOG for you guys. 35X12.50 1.25" BL, 1.5" bumpstop extensions, NO SPRINGS
I was installing my HP dana 30 last week and while I had the springs out to set bumpstops I though this would make a good pic.

I run 39s on 4" suspension and 1" BL. But......I have a LOT of "custom" sheet metal work.

I would not hesitate to run 35s on a 3" suspension lift with flat fenders.

What kind of lift do you have? I'm still running stock but am about to purchase a rock krawler 3.5 kit and don't want to waste money on a 3.5 if I can barely get any flex.

Yes, I have a 3 inch suspension lift. /75 spacers, 1.25 BL. so all the flex I have is soley from a 3 inch lifting springs. I ideally would have a 5 inch but relocate the shocks and springs, then add custom tube fenders in front and rear to add ground clearance, but keep the jeep LCOG. I think for a 3 inch lift I get a good bit of increase flex, I have actually seen bigger lifts with less travel. I have good droop and uptravel and find that 3 inches is extremely capable for almost anything I throw at it. I plan on keeping the same height lift and only modifying fenders etc for bigger tires and clearance.

I would say the 3.5 should do good for you.

Stock coils + 3/4" spacers in the rear and RC 2.5" coils up front. 5" up/5" down travel in the rear, 6" up/6" down travel in the front. There's more to this stuff than the tip of the iceburg.

So with flat fenders and a 2" lift and 35's, they wouldn't rub if the wheels were turned sharply? I just don't like the look of a high lift with my wrangler but anything smaller than 35's for tires don't seem worth the investment to me. I like big tires.

I wish I had an answer for you but thats above my head, I'm sure other people on here have that set up. With a 35X12.50Xwhatever tire its the width and backspacing that causes rubbing. I have 33x12.50x15s and don't rub when I turn because the wheels I have have 3.75" of backspacing where my buddy with 31x10.50x15s rubs on stock wheels because they have 4.5" of back spacing. So i *think* that with the correct back spacing and 2-2.5" of lift and flat fenders, you could easily run 35" tires. I'm a fan of the LCG look too but don't have the $$ to make it happen.

Edit: you'd be surprised how far 33" tires will take you. I know one guy with an LJ that has 2.5" suspension, 1.25" body lift, tummy tucked, and skids all the way under on 33x12.50x15 tires and leads the "blues and blacks" group on trail rides. He does have lockers but still, it all depends on what kind of wheeling you do and how much money you want to spend.

Helped a company build up a TJ with an RE 3.5 inch lift that fits 37; it has MetalCloak overline tube fenders and it is pretty unbelieveable out on the trail!

not just flats, flat fenders verses metal cloak overline are a difference. lol.

but the rubbing is usually from the tires on controls arms, sway bar links, stuff like that. so guys get aftermarket and proper backspaced rims to fix that.

Seems like a 1" BL, 3.5" SL, and 33x10s is a reasonable and fun set-up for an off-roading daily driver.
