2003 jeep Tj with 3.25" RC lift
35" BF All terrain with rock crawlers

There was a mixup in tires and was supposed to have 33s. I now need to put a body lift on so what would y'all recommend? Would like less expensive route but most trustworthy, no junk

Nice looking Jeep.

I would order up the JKS 1.25" body lift.

I hope you know there's a lot that goes with 35s as well as just lift! Don't wish you to get stuck on the side of the road!

What rear axle you have dana 35 your running risks dana 44 you will be ok the dana 30 your front axle assuming you don't have a rubi can handle 35's as well but just start looking into upgrade ing your axle shafts if you plan on getting into medium size trails if your only doing small stuff you'll be fine w/ dana 30-44 n 35's

Is agree but braking is pretty important as well as steering at least just for pure safety

I'm also running 35's w/ 3" lift. I do get some tire rub in the back wheel well. Looking into doing a SYE kit and couple other things as well.

I have 3"springs, 1.25"BL, 35's. Enough room with proper bumpstops.
But, as everyone else has said, there is a lot more to it than making room.
Brakes, steering, gears, axle swap, are just a few things I upgraded.

You have a nice Jeep.

With stock fenders and trimmed flares.


With MCE Flat front fenders.

Hey Jimmy. Welcome to the forum. This is the TJ forum..1997-2006 models.
I am not sure how the soft top works on the new Jeeps.

Try asking this question in the JK section...2007 to present.

Nice Jeep in your avatar. I like the color.

I still need to put a stabilizer shock on mine and will be replacing brakes also. Probably won't be getting a new axle right now, won't be doing any off-roading for a while. When would the best time to get a new axle be? Just curious

Hard question to answer. Some have had their D35 break with 31s. I wheeled mine on 33's for years and never broke. I have a buddy that broke his with 35's on a gravel road, but he was squirling around.

As far as the best time? Before it breaks. When you have the money. When you decide to regear. When you find a good used TJ D44 (not easy to find at all). Scan your local Jeep club websites. That is where I found mine.

Just take it very easy on that D35 with 35" tires.

I would search craigslist up n down or if you have the capabilities do a Ford explorer 8.8 rear axle you just have to buy and weld on the TJ brackets there are tons of write ups on this or you can do a Super 35 kit or C clip eliminator for the 35..... A lot of people say don't even waste money upgrade on the 35 i say it depends on your know how, luck, and wallet just giving you other options so you don't feel pigeon holed into one option

Here is mine with 35's 3" SL and 1" BL.

I noticed they are substantially heavier than the 33" KM2's. Brakes are pretty high up on my list, especially because my jeep isn't equipped with ABS.
