more lift questions...

if I wanted to use 35" tires what size lift can I install to run them. I was thinking about a 4.5" but wasn't sure if that was going to be big enough???

that´s big enough. perhaps you want to add a 1.25" BL and 1" MML.

which axles do you have? do you go wheeling or is it a mall crawler?
you´ll want to regear with that big tires...

4.5" will work for 35's andy ou will of course want to run the correct length bumpstops. Brake lines should be okay, but never hurts to upgrade those, You will want an SYE in non rubi, and adj control arms etc etc etc etc...

Im runing a 4 inch lift on a 2 inch body lift. Get the body so you have more flex with the 35's..Otherwise u have a nice lookin jeep with no flex...Take a look at mine with 35's

I have a 1" BL sitting around here somewhere that I need to put on still, what do you mean I have to drop everything? I already have a TC drop that was on there before I bought the jeep last year. what else do I have to "drop?"

If you have a body lift 2 inches or greater you will need to drop the rad. extend your fuel lines, and extened your steering. It comes with all the adapters and things you need in the kit. Doesnt take long at all and is pretty easy

install a 1" MML with the BL and you should be fine with a 4" lift without a TC drop. if you install a 1" BL and MML you don´t have to drop the fan shrould which really i a pain.

again, which axles do you have and what gears?
