Rcordero I am running 33 which was okay before the 2 1/2 lift, I dont know if the stock axles could hold 35's. This is my daily driver, I was going to re-gear unless I get some advise.

Undead-89 you can have so much lift you can't actually off-road with it without tipping over or having to put on tires so wide you can't fit down any path anyway.

Steelpony Agreed. Can't have to much lift. But you can have to much for your stock axles to handle depending on what u are going to do with it.

Joey I have an soa,2" body lift and some shackles. Im running 38,s. Shes not the fastest in the world, but it sure does look good. You can never have too much lift.

MellowYellow89YJ That just begs for 35's and new flares.... Is it too much? That is totally up to you and your planned use of the Jeep. I have a 2.5" OME lift, 1/2" shackles, 1" body lift, and I still have the plan to go SOA someday if it becomes more of a trail rig than it is now. That would give me more than 8" lift over stock to fit some big tread under.

Is this to much lift?

bought the 89yj springs where bad (looked old and bent). the jeep already has a SOA lift. I replaced the springs with a 2 1/2 inch Pro Comp Springs. Now I think the jeep is to high? Am I crazy of just in shock on how high it looks. I am running 33 BFG and they look small now. Also wanna know if it safe.

Thinking of

1. leaving and adjusting to a higher jeep
2. buying stock springs and swapping the 2 2/1 out
3. keeping the 2 1/1 and going back to SUA

Really need some help here, kinda new to this jeep thing, and loving it.
