Do I need more lift?

Well the BL and MML are on as well as the 35's as seen below. I am trying to figure out if I need more room or not to allow the 35's to flex off road. I have my ACOS set at their lowest setting so I can easily bump them up an inch or two if needed but I am unsure if I really want/need the extra height. I am pretty happy with the height I am at now but I need to decide because I need to take measurements for a Tom Woods DS in the near future since I will be needing one when I install my Rokmen belly up skid. What do you guys think? Here are the few pics.




As you can see I bent my fender a bit over the summer with the 33's w/o the BL

Lift looks good, but what you really need is a better beer.

Nice....Sorry. I'm a homebrewer and a bit of a beer snob. Ok....I hell of a beer snob.

Anyway, looks like you have a heck of a lot of lift.

Well as it is the person that helped me with the BL and MML was drinking a "bit" as we worked on it. After it was all complete I dropped him off at his house and I guess he forgot how high it was. As he stepped out of the jeep he pretty much tucked and rolled several feet down his lawn. I really wish I had it on camera!


As far as beer goes it has to be a deep dark meal in a can/bottle for me to enjoy it. I drank my share of nasty crap in college and I have moved past that. Beer should actually be enjoyable to drink!

Personally after 20 years in the Navy I'll drink just about anything, but my all time preference is ( from the top down)
Beer......Sam Adams
............Guinness extra stout ( yea baby)
........... XXXX ( Aussies know what I mean )
............Miller ( dont; ask)

Liquer..... Moon Shine (North Carolina)
...............Johnny Walker Black label
..............Jack
..............Vodka
..............Gin ( any)
..............Rum ( the good stuff)
..............Wild Turkey 101


Still a nice lift man I'd go that high if I ever had a need to lift my 01

If you are a big whiskey drinker you have to try the Jamason 12 year. It is the smoothest whiskey I have ever had.

That factory skid really hangs down there, doesn't it? I really noticed it on mine when I had the steps off prior to and just after the lift. Had to put 'em back on until I can do something else so my passenger won't complain.

We dont really call it a skid around here. It is the factory shovel since it gets caught on and digs up everything it gets near.

I cant wait until the Rokmen belly up skid gets installed for that reason.

Mines stock height with 235's instead of 205"s and I had a oil pan skid plate for a 4L , ( mines a 2.5) but I adapted it for mine, kept it on ether till I ripped out a chunk of dirt with it and got it all over the underside of the engine.
Now my oldest is making a drain pan for a oil burner out of it

you've asked the wrong questions. you should be asking if your bumpstops are extended enough to clear 35s, and if your fenders need modification to increase uptravel and reduce bumpstop length.

Oh I am fully aware that I will need to adjust my bump stops. I just wanted to wait until I settled at the desired height to make those adkjustments.


But on a side note...Now the fun begins! DW is back.....not a huge case and somewhat my fault for since an idiot pulled up to my right at a light and his lane is a rt turn only lane. It was obvious that he was going to try and fly by me to cut in front so being the a*$hole I am I went WOT and by 3rd gear hit a pot hole and there it was. I had him but had to pull over and let him by for obvious reasons. God I love driving in the city. Im hoping a tire is just unbalanced.
