4" lift

Will it clear 35s without excessive rubbing?

On road yes, offroad no. and there is more to setting it up such as rims, bump stops, and more. also regearing and strengthening up your axles and brakes is important for 35s. Plus some steering components. Offroad your gona have some issues.

bumpstops, upper controls, and upgrade your steering if you plan on running 35s some of the stuff that wolnt be included in most lift kits. btw a 4" lift and 1" body lift will clear 35s easy..

Bear with me please, I'm learning as I go here.

Bump stops?
Rear and front. What's a good height for them?

And upper controls? I typed that into quadratec and the only thing that would make sense to me that came up is upper control arms. Not sure what you mean though.

stop relying on quadratrash.

good choice on the bumpstop extensions from RE tho, you'll just need longer M10 bolts if they're not included. 2-2.5" front and 2.5-3" rear should be enough to prevent your shocks from bottoming out...and add a 1" BL, and you'll have enough room for 35s.

for control arms, look at Currie, Savvy and Rokmen.

4 inches is more then enough lift for 35s. hell 35s fit on stock height TJs. you need to cut plastic if it rubs. .


how to set bump stops. compress the suspension until the tire hits the fender. measure the space between the bump stop and the bottom of the coil plate. add about 1/2 inch thats what you need for a bump stop. limiting up travel will not limit flex. you only really need 3-4inches of up travel on a TJ to have good flex off road.

Not legally, but yes

and I was talking stock fenders, and no cutting of the tub. Obviously you can run 35s on stock height a little bit of modification. but just adding 4 inches of lift, and he will still rub offroad. I have 5 inches of lift up front, and I still rub on the metal of my fenders, with 33s, plus on my control arms. I can't go anywider with my tires, I already get enough cop attention, and I am in the process of getting new fenders.


I am not arguing with you at all, I know you know a ton about wranglers and I am sure you know alot more than I, but I am just sharing my point of view so this guy up here gets it right.
