The the best option would be go with flat fenders or do a flat fender trim on your factory fenders

I would do the body lift but don't do more then 1", 1.25 at most. They look weird on a JK over an inch.
Seems like that's what it's looking like is a body lift. I do not want to affect my ride any worse it actually isn't bad now.

igtdwn Hmm good to know. I considered a body lift I was just making sure what my other options were if any. I knew in the back of my mind 3 in would not be enough and 3 months later here I am... Thx

mainly your driveshafts. looks like you have an unlimited, so your front will likely be the first to go (when it goes). may not happen immediately, and it'll warn you before it fails; it'll spit grease from the boot, that's when it's heading for driveshaft heaven. Just something to be aware of for the future

brianb Why not do a 1.25" body lift. That's
what I'm doing next week??

JKralph you could put 1" spacers on top of your current coils. You'll start to run into other issues, but the spacers will give you that extra inch you want.
