Lift/tire math question
 
So I am trying to wrap my head around the total lift. If I lift my JKUR 2.5 and go with 35 tires to replace the 32's, is the total lift going to be 4.5?

I think it is 4in but I'm not certain. You're going by how much a certain point is raised, right?

Yep, that is what I am looking for. Thanks

It's about .5" for every 1" of tire size. But the 2.5" lift, depending on the mfr, may well end up being more than 2.5". There are peeps who've installed that size lift and ended up with 3".

You checking garage clearance or something?

Tires will add half the difference (of measured height higher than old tires) in added ground clearance. However.... just because you go from 32's to 35's doesn't mean the tires will actually measure 3 inches taller overall (giving you 1.5" more clearance).

Haha...^^^ What CG3 said also holds true, especially since most tires aren't the size quoted by the mfr. For example, my 35" DuraTracs are really 34" at the PSI at which I run em.

Also, the soft top actually ADDS a couple inches to your rig, as opposed to the hard top.

That said, I've got a 3" lift on 35's. My garage has 82" of clearance, and I fit no problem.

I went from 29" tires to almost 33". Put the TF 2.5" coil lift on. In front I gained 5" and back 4" above stock.
