Im trying to get by until i can afford a full lift thinking about trying spring spacers. Im in need of tires right now and ive got a great deal on a set of 35's but cant get the lift i want right now. i have a 3" body right now i think the back may be ok but what kind of spacer can i put in the front to fit 35's? 2" maybe??
I understand all that but i have a free set of 35x12.5x15 bfg allterains now sitting in my basement and my tires on my jeep are now slicks. can someone answer my question.
I think they did..but it was not the answer you were looking for. If the only acceptable answer is "yes"..then throw a 2" spacer on it and then discover the other problems you will likely face (as mentioned).

Buy tires that fit your lift, don't buy a lift that fits your tires. If you really want to run those 35s (awesome deal BTW) then save your money and buy a complete lift kit as well as proper gearing for that tire size and throw that 3" BL in the trash. Tall and tipsy doesn't always get you down the trail but it makes some great woops pictures in Offroad Magazine.

Yeah. U need to take that 3" body off and throw a 1 or 1.25 and a 4" suspension to run those 35s. Just wait or if ur tires now are that bad sell them and buy 33s mentioned already. I had 33s on my 3" BL when I bought my 06 TJ and it rubbed like crazy, so I bought 1.25 spacers and it worked beautifully.

why don't you just save your money until you can do it right the first time, instead of wasting money on tires you can't fit, or crap parts that won't help?
keep in mind there is more to bigger tires that just slapping them on the wheels. you need upgraded brakes & upgrades steering, regearing, speedo gear/recalibration...etc.
Like he said. Don't half way do it. Running 35's isn't cheap especially if you wheel the thing and not mall crawl it. I bent my rear axle shafts (d44 & locker) on 35's. I already run RCV's in the front si like I said it's costly.
Also I neat function is called the search button or better yet google.
YOU ONLY NEED TWO TOOLS IN LIFE - WD-40 AND DUCT TAPE. IF IT DOESN'T MOVE AND SHOULD, USE THE WD-40. IF IT SHOULDN'T MOVE AND DOES, USE THE DUCT TAPE.
IF YOU CAN'T FIX IT WITH A HAMMER, YOU'VE GOT AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM.
