SteelThrillsseeker Ok, I ask because I'm not savy in a garage or on a computer. I'll have to pay someone to do the work. I'd like Mickey Thompson mtz's 35 inch with stock 18 wheels and stock fenders. I don't want to cut or rub for that matter. Will I have to lift? What would I need exactly?

roxbury29 Hi, here is my jeep and my friends.

donmeca2020 The thing with Lifts are that they AREN'T practical for all, i also feel about 95% of people use it for just for looks, while the other 5% actually get use out of a lifted vehicle.

lifting a vehicle is the same as lowering one. for everyday drivability it's not the most convenient.

Just another point to consider...

Don! Long time, no type!

BUT you will rub on your control arms, just throwing that out there

MOPWR2U Just a couple of observations after reading this thread, for whatever its worth.

SHAWN3R, your Jeep is bad ass. Very well done.

I hope the person in the JKU with a 1" front lift, and 35s, on that video, didn't brag about making that obstacle with just a 1" lift. I don't know if I would call that "making it". Kind of looked like he was driving by "brail", and feeling his way along the rocks with the bottom of his Jeep, to me.

I think the minimal lift fad has gone a little too far. I went that route on a couple of Jeeps, and I don't think it works as well off road as a Jeep with a decent amount of lift. The advantage of minimal lift is really just minimal expense. It doesn't work better, or look better, it just cost less.

Here's a couple of photos of some Jeeps I've owned with minimal lift, and the Jeep I own now with a decent lift. The current Jeep works a whole lot better off road.

2010 JKR w/ 2 1/2" lift and 35s


2011 JKUR w/ 2 1/2" lift and 37s. I later put flat fenders on this Jeep.


2014 JK w/ 3 1/2" lift and 35s


So really, for minimal additional lift, you get much better off road function, at least from what I've seen.

Flat fenders, new front bumper and new rear tire carrier is all that is needed. People stop feeding others false info.

JKsurfer Anyone one else with more input on this? I really love the look of 35's with no lift. I have an aftermarket bumper already and am looking to try this out.

Asphalt Assault I think it can be done just setup is crucial re wheel back spacing and need flat fenders.

This is true. I have a 3.5 MetalCloak lift with Nitto 37's and no pinch seam issues.

donmeca2020 its not required to trim the seams with the 2014s from what i read. as for NEEDING a lift, no one NEEDS one. people only want one for aesthetics and or if you plan on doing some hardcore offroading. for light to mild off roading you can easily throw some 17 inch wheels and the 315/70/17s on without problem.

Love the look and drives just like before.I can notice a slight difference in power .Not bad....in six gear on interstate...up hill....I don't have to downshift but it doesn't have the pep it did with the stockers.
