Your gonna need to gusset ur axle c's if ur running 35s and maybe sleeve ur axle if u wheel hard.... and last, ur mpg will drop significantly doing mud terrains. That's all I have for now.

Also 2.5 coil lift will net u hire than 2.5, 4 inches will net u hire than 4....all depends on the load (winch, tire carrier, bumper)
Thanks that helped a lot what tires do you recommend for a weekend warrior jeep, where I will be mainly on the road but on the weekend will be doing mudding?

What lift and what height should i get?

Hey guys I'm trying to decide what type of lift I should get and what height. The main reason I want one is to fit mud tires. I don't really need a suspension lift kit and would rather get a body lift kit because they are cheaper. I obviously know that a 4" kit will raise it 4" but I'm having trouble really picturing it. If you guys have pictures of your lifts (any type) you should post them and tell me the height because I'm trying to find a median between comfort and of road ability, mainly mudding. Thanks for the help and I have a 2013 jeep wrangler unlimited sport
