OklaTJ Thanks Jerry I guess I'm a cheap skate looking for a cheap (but good) way to lift! But I don't want to do something stupid that is why I asked sorry if it seams like I ask to many crazy things! I never wanted to go with a body lift at all but it was cheap lol I'll just have to wait like everyone else! lol

Jerry Bransford The OE antiswaybar links can break but replacing them with a quick disconnect antiswaybar link like from JKS will stop that from happening in the future.

So far as your lift questions go, do NOT install a 3" body lift. A 1" body lift is fine, a 2" is ok if absolutely needed. There is never a reason you should install a 3" body lift, they create way too many problems and they look like crap too. Problems that happen with a 3" body lift that have to be resolved? Transmission shifter angle issues, transfer case shifter angle issues, fuel line length issues, steering wheel shaft angle issue, brake line length issue, etc.

It is FAR better to install a 3" suspension lift with a possibly a 1" body lift if you want some lift.

You won't find an experienced Jeep builder that will recommend a 3" body lift for a Wrangler.

From what I've read throughout this forum, Those tires will probably rub a bit with a 3" suspension lift. You'd have to trim a lot of the fender flares from what I understand. If you go with a 4" or a 3" with some body lift you should be fine. Also, i was recommened getting the 10.50's over the 12's due to the fact that a skinnier tire will provide better grip while off-roading. hope this helps.

And yes they make 33's x 12.5 or 10.5's (or it might be even 10's)

doclouie I think you mean a 3" suspension lift not a body lift. As for the sway bar link yep they break all the time. Go for a JKS disconnect system. They are a bit pricey, but will never brake. I picked mine up on ebay for $90 almost brand new. Not sure on the tires as I run 31s.

Two part question

First I went to the lake on the beach. It was great!Then there we went through some dry mud holes. It was real fun stuff, good flexing for a beginner, lol. Now to the question I busted the drivers side Link,sway bar its a cheap 20 dollar part through quadratec no problem, do they normally break easy? Now for the next question I'm looking at a Rugged Ridge 3'' body Lift and then a 2'' Skyjacker with Hydro shocks,now can or should I run 33x12.50 15's with that combo? If not the 12.50 then do they make a 33x10.50 15?
