For offroad use, 4" is ideal for 33" tires, 5" is ideal for 35" tires. Where do the tires rub if you don't have those amounts of lift? Fenders.

For street or very mild offroad use, you can get away with 3" for 33" and 4" for 35" tires but I wouldn't recommend either for a Jeep that sees much offroad time.

That was a hard sentence to read. Jerry is right, you'll quickly know when it's rubbing your fenders lol.

Just curious, I have a 3.5" suspension and a 1" body... So you think I could run 35's?

I have a 4.5" RE lift with 33s. Next week I will be putting on my new 35s. Hopefully all will be ok. I dont do heavy wheeling light trail riding with some occasional mud riding. I will also be getting some new flat fenders..Here is a pic with 33s.

It'll be fine for your new 35's, RE's 4.5" suspension lifts are more like 5-5.5" in reality.

I encourage people to keep the COG low. Run Metal Cloak or Bushwacker flat flares. I'd rather do that than go over 4" of lift.

Having a low COG is one thing, having sufficient clearance under the Jeep to make it over obstacles is quite another. I've seen rigs on the rocks whose design goals were so focused on having a low COG that they couldn't make it over the rocks... they got hung up on the rocks so much that it ceased being entertainment after a while.

jason where are you from?

makes a bigger difference to what your wheeling as some set ups work better for different trail systems.

Our TJ is on a 4in springs, clayton short arms up front, and their triangulated 4 link out back. we have a great belly clearance also set the shocks up for more down travel then up travel and it works very well for the trails in the Northeast. We have a lot more off camber and tighter trails with trees than a lot of the southern cal guys. So taller rigs tend to kiss trees more often then a lower rig with the same travel in the suspension.

Summery 4inchs and 35s works just fine for me

4" and 35's is average. Some go taller for no reason and some go lower because they can. There's a lot more to determining up travel than the height of your springs alone. Instead of just blindly going at it with useless metrics, why don't you determine a belly height and up travel requirement and shoot for those? That's much more useful than just saying "I want 4" and 35's."

People are focusing way too much on how low they can get a rig and not thinking about functionality. In Colorado, Moab and Cali if your too low, even with a tummy tuck and enough uptravel your going to get stuck. A flat skid isnt very helpful if its too low to the ground to make a differnce. I don't advocate going too high but a good balance is key. I prefer not to drag sids/ hit my bumper on every obstacle.

If you're referring to me, I've got 19" at the belly, 17" at the lowest link mount, and no gas tank hanging down in the back. Clearance up the ass + 5" up in the rear and 6" up in the front. All while remaining a tick under 6' at the top of the windshield frame.

.....and I still get high centered. If you play where clearance matters, you'll hit no matter what.
