denisbaldwin My first YJ had no lift and was on 31 inch BFGs for the longest time. Very little rubbing for the kind of driving I do.

The upper door halves in the picture go with the Steel Horse hardtop. The uppers detach, and the rear half of the glass slides forward. Unfortunately, SH is defunct and parts for this top/doors are no longer available, and I sold the top and uppers to someone who felt like fabbing to fix sloppy fitment due to wear and loss of parts over the years. The closest thing to the SH upper doors that I know of is the Bestop Supertop upper door sliders, which are fabric but have sliding glass windows and are available with sharp or rounded rear corners to match factory soft tops, Supertops or factory hard tops. I'm going to order a Supertop NX soft top (factory style hardware and thicker fabric) and matching upper door sliders.

Ibuildembig No sye needed until you go 6" or above
01-06-2012 05:16 PM
randar That's what I needed to know. My main concern is if I'll need the SYE. I want to get it in the air a little more (can't hardly even crawl under without jack stands) and hopefully somewhat improve the ride and travel. My 3/4 ton dodge rides like a caddy in comparison. Of course I will want to put 31 or 32's on it soon. I've got 235's now and they rub on the springs if I turn to stops. Have you noticed any smoother ride?
Thanks.

Anepyer4964 @ Randar- well the kit I bought came with springs, shocks, brk hose ext brkts , bump stops, and frt sway bar ext. the only other thing I needed was the shock ext brkt kit and of course I had the shackle bushings replaced with polyurethane as well.....
If your thinking of going with 4" or higher then you'll need a new rear driveshaft I was told and maybe a trans drop spacer (not sure what else) . I'll post a better pic soon....

richh789 I have 31s on my 95, they rub the leaf springs on stock wheels when you turn on the way. They rub the flare if you had anything in the road at all, they will rub in the back if you put people in the rear seat

Did you do anything other than the 2" lift? I'm trying to decide on a lift and that photo looks perfect. Wish it wasn't so blurry.
Thanks.

River Rat I have a 19mm offset on my wheels so no spring rub, but i do have flare rub. New set of OMEs sitting here waiting for me to put on.
12-12-2011 11:10 AM
Ibuildembig You normally can see where the bottom lip of the flare has rubbed the tire. They are straight across and not radiused like it would be if the tire has rubbed it down.
12-12-2011 10:31 AM
SandyMushYJ Where do they usually rub? I'll check for signs, but I've never heard or felt it. Maybe if I had less offset in the wheels it would catch the flare behind the front wheel when turning. I don't remember how much clearance it had there.
12-12-2011 09:28 AM
Ibuildembig Hmm odd, I have had lots and lots of yj's and haven't had one yet with 31's that didnt rub on the flares

He has about the same clearance I had with stock height and 31's. Ran it for a year before installing the lift and only rubbed the springs with stock wheels. I hit the flare once when I hit a curb with the tire. Stock and 31's:

Jeffd34 Ok now I really can't wait to go out and investigate. I know the shocks are a red color but I've beer noticed any markings of a brand name or anything. My avatar is another good shot of my yj.
12-11-2011 10:40 PM
Ibuildembig Yeah something has been changed, you cannot run a 31 on a stock setup and not rub the heck out of the flares.
12-11-2011 10:35 PM
Jeffd34 Darn auto correct on the iPhone. I wasn't paying attention. I can spell. Lol

Driller mine with the BFG all terrain T/A's KO's on full lock to lock rub the springs but it's with the stock steel rims 15x7. either will go with 1" -1 1/2" spacers or look for new rims. any steel rims you guys use that will have back space to do the trick? preferably stock or you just using alloy rims, Driller

any issues offroad? I was saving for some metal cloak fenders but this sounds MUCH cheaper.

SandyMushYJ My 31 inch Pro Comp MT's rub the leaf spring at full lock with stock wheels, which a lift won't fix, but I just lifted mine a couple inches because I hit a curb with a front tire and it got into my fender. No other issues in the year they've been on it.
