I have 6" all together, 4" coils and 2" BB spacers. I don't think I would want 8". Mine drives great and i really enjoy driving it.

oh I'm sure someone has done it, just don't know why. You have to remember, you are talking about a short narrow wheelbase vehicle. I have seen a couple around my area, but don't see them out where I go wheeling, they would probably turn over.

That's the prob I was looking into, because that would raise the center of gravity significantly causing a higher chance to rollover, but im just interested on the handling of jeeps with this high of a lift.

i love how everybody bashes it right off the bat as to go along with the general concensus of the forum flow
it depends how the 8" is achieved, and how you plan on offroading with it, there are many more ways of offroading than steap climbs that can be scary since your cog will be higher..i have been that high with spring over axles in the past with my yj and its fitting

plus the fact you can fit 40's with that much lift
i ran 38's with 6" lift b4
again depends how you wheel/if you wheel
put 8" of lift aint all that crazy, just frowned apon on the jeep sites cuz they think everyone wants to wheel the same way

Buddy has one, but I dont have a picture. I really dont recommend it. His Jeep is really scary and rolls all the time. Too high of a center of gravity. I always try convincing him to downsize and just get tube or hiline fenders but he wont listen. I wouldnt do it.

That's awesome; ordering options to fit 40's to a D35 rear...

I don't think frowned upon as in "general concensus" terms. There have been so many refinements to suspension, travel and fender clearance that there is really no reason to go that high anymore IMO. If you are talking hard core rock crawling look at the truggies and purpose built vehicles. Don't see many that high in the air. Just common sense I think not to put yourself in a high COG type situation for the "cool" factor.

8" of lift was cool when 3" body lifts were cool.

My foreman had a built up CJ in the 80's. Overall 11" of lift, on 42's.

He runs larger tires during the summer months. He now has a set of 33" X-Terrains on there.

If you go higher than 4-5 inches, in my opinion you should stretch the wheel base.
