Question Lift question

So I've created a problem for myself. Currently I have a 2.5" lift with 33s. I'd like to run some 35s sometime soon and know I will be needing a little bit more lift. I can't decide if I should go with a 4" suspension or just go with a 3" body lift and keep my 2.5" suspension. The body lift will be about $400 cheaper but I'm not sure what route I shall take. Any advice would help

Body lift is a bad idea. Spend the money, go the safer way.

A body lift was on my jeep when i got it. I dont like it at all if i had a choice, and the money, i would go with a suspension lift but dont go any higher then a 4" lift because you will need a new driveshaft.

Ok, well if I had to get th slip yoke then I would. I was just trying to find the best way to get the 35s. Looks like I'll just get the 4". Thanks

Anything over a 1"-1 1/4" is a bad idea IMO. Go with the suspension lift.
