35's

I wanted to know what types of lifts you guys are running with 35's. I'm currently running a 4.5 lift with 33's. To gain the extra clearance I was thinking of either a one inch bl or coil spacers. I really am against doing a bl, but I just want to get some opinions on what you guys think.

Tube fenders should give you that extra clearance. If you do have to do a body block, just don't do more than 2 inches or you're asking for problems.

If you don't want to change out fenders or cut body metal, go with the 1" body lift. Reason being, if your jeep drives fine right now, adding any more suspension lift could mess with it, thus slap a short body lift on.

1-1.25" BL would be fine to clear 35's... don't overlook the steering and brake upgrades....

You're already plenty tall for 35's. Plus, it takes more than clearance to reliably run that size tire. A 1" body lift can be used very functionally in order to get things tucked up so I'd recommend going that route regardless of if you actually need the extra clearance or not.

I got under a 3" lift, 1.25" BL and tube fenders. I run 35's easy. Once I get the rear hi-fenders and convert the front to hi-lines I could run 37's even easier.

6" lift....35s almost look small especially with some wear on them. everyone says you dont want that much space in your wheel well....but i kinda like it better. brand new 35s or 36s would look perfect

Thanks for the advice. I guess when it's time for the tires I'll drive with them and then decide what to do for the extra lift. But in the mean time I still have to get an 8.8 from easy coast gear supply and new steering linkage. Anyone have any experience with their 8.8 swaps?

You can get them from East Coast Gear with everything ready to go. It is one of the easiest bolt on axle swaps you can do. Only second to getting a d44 out of another TJ.

True, but with 4.10 gears a tru trac locker and e brake cables all delivered to your door for $1475, that sounds a lot better for the money than a d44 w/drum brakes and 3.73 gears that my local junkyards as 900-1800 for.

I wish I sold my disc brake d44 where you are. I couldn't sell mine for that, they would laugh at me. You need to slap that junkyard owner in the face for that robbery. I can pick up any axle in the yard for 100.

The 4.5 is plenty lift as mentioned for 35's.

If it were me I would remove the 4.5 springs and throw some 3.5s in there instead and then get a set of Hyline Tube fenders, low COG with plenty of clearance for flexing the 35's.

I ran a 4" Claytong lift with 35's and regular tube fenders and cleared 35's easy.

That would be nice. But the funny part I left out. The rubicon axle is the one for 1800. But they some how want a core return???
