Ways to fit 35's
1. Longer bump stops with current lift
2. 1" body lift
3. coil spacer
4. Flat fender and sawzaw rear fenders

I ran 35's with 4.5" in rear and 6.5 total infront but, I had winch and up there, so it might have been compressed a bit.

will fit 35's but what axles do you have? A D30 and a D35 are gonna have a tough life with 35's if you do any hard wheeling. Even light wheeling on 35's will severely shorten the lifespan of your axles......that's why even though I have plenty of room for 35's, I'm running 33's.

I used the 1" BL from Performance Accessories. Complete installation in less than an hour and a half......and I was taking my time. Could have had it installed in less than an hour if my phone would have stopped ringing.

Yep, and that was with my dad, who doesn't know a ratchet from a welder!!
It was really a simple install. I didn't do the MML, instead, I lowered the fan shroud. The PA kit comes with the lowering kit. Simple stuff.

I read somewhere here that a 1" BL doesn't come with everything you need.

My PA kit did. It had everything needed for a simple install.

I bought mine from 4wd.com for around $115 shipped (I don't recall the exact amount, this is just a vague memory)...........but I know there are better deals out there. I don't have any experience with other BL kits, just the PA kit.

That's the kit.
I started lubing up the body mount bolts 3 days before I knew I was going to do the install. I'd hit each bolt head each night with a squirt of PB Blaster and when it came time for the install, it was a cinch getting the bolts out. I honestly had NO problems with the install. TOO EASY.

I know a numer of guys running a 1" BL and 2-3" lift kit and 37" tires.... of course they have hi-line fenders on the front and wider openings in the rear. Might be an option.

That seems to be the new trend, lots of tire, lots of fender trimming and/or high-line fenders, and little lift. Seems like a decent idea, really. Keeps the CG down for more stable climbs while still having good ground clearance due to the taller tires. I never really liked those giant, crazy-tall Jeeps anyway......more of a carshow trend than anything practical.
