|tmulholland24||I've heard way too many negative things to do a 3" shackle. Im either doing a 2.5" RC lift with a 1" body lift or a .5" shackle lift or just a 4" RC lift|

|tmulholland24||if you want 33x12.5 tires i would go with the 4" lift. your in a jeep not a honda dont try and squeeze wheels under your truck lol|

Thanks for all the information. I have been in debate between the 2.5 lift or 4". I would like to run 33x12.50, would I need back spacers for clarence with a 2.5 lift?

|cavediverjc||Sounds like a solid plan. Send Turdhurdler a PM. He's got a 4" lift (I believe) on his YJ with 31" tires. I've wheeled with him and he's got a very capable Jeep. He could probably answer some questions you might have. He's a good guy.|

|tmulholland24||I think im gonna do the 2.5" RC lift and then save up for a roofrack and rear bumper cause i dont have a hitch|

Thanks for all the input! Cavediver im not going to be doing any true offroading (i live on longisland not much for us) so the whole shovel thing wont really phase me. But i have the 2.5L and a friend of a friend who is a jeep mechanic said he would suggest regearing my jeep. That would cost me $1500 therefore i have no plans of doing so in the near future.
But back to the 31s on a 4 inch lift. They would look too small right?

|drivebytruckerz||I'm running them without a lift and it looks normal.. probably would look fine with at 1-2" lift, but 4 is pushing it. They would probably look tiny.|

I'd say install your lift with the TC drop kit (if you don't mind the whole shovel thing), but be prepared to shell out some extra $$ for the SYE/CV DS if you're still getting vibrations in your driveline.

Edit: I just read that they have free shipping on it too, awesome.
|05-17-2010 11:08 AM|
cavediverjc, I just got a 4" RC lift and when I spoke to a tek he said that the lift comes complete and that the TC drop bracket is enough to accomodate for the lift.
Now they do recommend the SYE and the CV upgrades but I figured that they're just trying to make another sale.

|tmulholland24||i would hate to do the 2.5" RC because i can have the 4" for the same price c|

to give you an idea of what it would look like, here are 2 jeeps that belong to members of this forum. the first pic has a RC 4 inch lift with 31 inch tires, and the second pic is a RC 2.5 inch lift on 31s
4 inch on 31s
2.5 inch on 31s
|05-15-2010 06:38 PM|
I think they might look a little small on a 4" lift. The 31's would look fine on an 1-1/2 or 2" lift.
That's what I have going on here:

i believe bds makes a 3 inch lift for the yj
but it shouldnt look odd with a 4 inch lift.
you could also go with a 2.5 lift and shackles that will give you an extra half inch of lift

31" tires with a lift
Buying 31" tires cause im getting a really good deal on them . Would they look unproportional on a 4" lift? i would like a 3" lift but cant find any. It would be much cheaper/easier to do a 1" shackle lift and a 2" body lift but everybody seems to frown upon both. What kind of lift would you do?
These are the wheels
