tab22092 A 2" lift and 35's is more than most will ever use. You start running into geometry issues up above 3" as well just a thought. I vote for a budget boost or cheap coil lift and some new 35" rubber!

MikD Ran mine with a 4" and stock wheels and tires for about a month. I had 1.5" spacers behind the wheels which made a huge difference in getting rid of the "tippy toes" look. It was fine and actually worked quite well, of course was much happier when the tires arrived to complete the change.

Kinga Ok i guess I'll have to do the tires first hahaha.

eh384 Yes it will look funny. Just do it all together, with a 3.75 lift, and some trimming you can get 37s in there. If it's a must, I'd do tires first .

eh384 So am I, I live off of Brewery in New City..and you?
08-23-2014 11:16 AM
Kinga yeah, i heard they want to build some kind of amusement park there. i'm exit 10 off the parkway, so i'm about 10 min away.
08-23-2014 09:00 AM
eh384 Be very careful around there right now. They are looking into developing the land. I know of some pretty good trails, pretty steep and rocky not far from there. Message me and I'll give you the details. BTW, I live about 15 min from Letchworth, where are you?
08-23-2014 07:48 AM
Kinga i went out wednesday and i found a place around letchworth. its a nice trail, my stock jeep had a little problems here and there but it was fun. it wasn't legal though. as soon as you get out of it you have to go through the letchworth cemetery and its closed off by a wire. i just rode over it. nearly had a heart attack while doing it but my jeep came out ok. (: the trail might be a hiking trail cause the trees are marked. not too sure though

Who did the mounting and balancing? The bigger tires aren't the easiest to balance. A few years ago, on my old Jeep (an 07 Sahara with 33s), I had my tires installed at Mavis. Less then a year later, I had to buy two new tires because the tread wore so completely uneven from the a-hole balancing it poorly. I'd take it to a competent Jeep shop and have them check the balancing first.

Samps86 Thats exactly what it is lol "wobble" i even watched my driver side wheel last weekend while driving with my doors off and i can see my wheel has some wobble and thats how it feels in the steering wheel a "wobble" cus the steering wheel shakes left to right so that to me would indicate something loose with my wheels.You might be on to something here lol could the lift and bigger tires affected this in anyway?
