I have recently purchased an 04 wrangler x. It is factory as best I can tell and running 31x10.50 tires. Anyway, i was playing with someone that has 4.5" lift with 35" tires and the diference is obvious.. so I have decided to go for a lift but still confused even after reading the lift reviews.
I do not want to do the "impossible" nor anything that would be considered extreme to most. What I want is to play with mild off road with a lot of on road driving. The local shops sale rough country, rusty and BDS lift kits (at least the ones I found so far). Anyhow, I am considering the BDS 3" lift with 33" tires. Would that be a good setup and allow me to play better with my friends? I have been told that once I go over the 3" barrier that I would need to do lots more to make it work. I am not planning on new gears for now but eventually would as I have no power machine now and expect it to be a lot worse after the tires increase.. I also dont want a lot of fender scrubbing and not sure if 3" is enough..
