Tires 2 Big???

I'm new to owning a Jeep but have wanted one since I started driving. 16 years later I finally picked one up! It is a 01 4.0L and it came with a Scooby Doo 4" suspension lift and 3" body lift. I want to take off the body lift but don't know if my 35" tires will fit. Anyone know the max tire size is?

Get a 1.25" body lift to replace the 3" body lift. You will then have all the correct size bolts and grill spacers, so you will not have to fight with them.

That combined with your lift will be perfect for 35" tires, IMO.

X20000000000000000000000000000. I just ordered a 1.25" body lift so I could fit 35" tires under my jeep in the near future.

Another option would be to go with the ACOS PRO adjustable coil spacers. This is what I'm doing. I too have a 4" suspension lift and I'm going to 35's. I personally don't like the look of a body lift. Also being able to adjust the height, front to rear and side to side seems like a good idea IMO. They also have a gas cylinder bump stop that kind of acts like a shock to absorb a hit. They are not cheap! As people on here will point out. As I said, just another option.

Thank you to everyones comments. I really don't want to loose my ride height and don't want a body lift... I may have to save a few more $ for a long arm 6" lift. Once again thanks for the info!

A 1" Body lift is barely noticeable, and will provide you with with a little extra tub clearance if you ever decide to tuck things up under there. IE: tranny skid, gas tank skid. You really have to look to notice it. High lifts with stuff still hanging doesn't work very well where I go. Lot's of off camber stuff, roots, and some rocks.
I guess it all depends on where you plan on taking it.
It's your Jeep, and it's great that there are so many different ways to modify one.

little body lifts aren't bad. all of the best built jeeps have a small body lift (1"-1.5") to accommodate a belly up skid plate.

Scooby doo means poorly done and a little goofy.

LOL. I'm getting a kick out of everyones comments about my "Scooby Doo" suspension lift. The Jeep came with a 4" lift that I don't know who made it and the shocks are blank with no company name. Only made in Mexico engraving. All I know is that it rides super hard and it make a really bad metal popping noise when I am in a turn and hit a bump
