I did not. I went with the spare tire extension, but I don't think it's necessary. Looks like there is plenty of room for the 35's without it. Eventually I'll get a new gate for the spare, but I'm spent for now.

bo9roadking Unless you want to keep your stock fenders, a flat fender would give you more tire clearance than a body lift.

The Teraflex video makes the body lift sound like an easy option, but there are other things that need to be taken into account. Will the lift impact your steering shaft or make the steering wheel set closer to the dash? Will the transmission and transfer case shift selectors still move to the proper shifting locations without interference? Will your swing out tire carrier that is tied to the tailgate and to the bumper, which is tied to the frame, still work correctly or will there be some needed adjustments? Any electrical wiring that was run to the winch, custom lights mounted on the frame or bumper, etc... might require longer wires or rerouting. Just some things to think about with a body lift.

mrbullitt I heard body lifts mess with shift/steering linkage. I remember asking about a 2.5 to 3 inch suspension lift with a 1.5" body lift back when I first joined the site and I was advised not too because of this. Anyone here have any experience with this?

Simple Simon if you have a lift. Shouldn't cost that much if you have to have somebody do it for you. It's a simple job and it's only about 180 bucks for the kit.

I'd like to know this too.

It was quiet easy (well not easy per say) and very time consuming on my 12 ram. Instructions were quite easy to follow.
So hope its the same for JKs

According to Teraflex its very doable and you don't have to worry about problems with the drive shafts. You could easily sell your 35's and put that towards 37's. Very, very tempting.

This is a 3" kit with 1" body lift on 37's.

Amazing what 3" does to 35's

Overall, I love it.

35's. I'm really happy with it. Highly recommend the Teraflex

It rides very smooth. Not like a dump truck! After we installed it I had to drive it home 60 miles on the freeway, and it surprised me by how well it handled. It sways a little more, but that is to be expected. Small bumps are no problem. Very smooth ride
