33s to 35s
 
I have a 4 inch suspension lift with 33s and want to upgrade to 35s. I know you can fit them but I want a little more Clarence so what do you guys think about getting a 1 inch body to clear the 35s a little more. I am asking because I know body lifts are bad but is just 1 inch okay

No body lift > 1" body lift. Don't do it.

A common way is 4" suspension lift with a 1.25" body lift. A few people will say any amount of body lift is bad but most everyone will say 1.25" is a perfect. Infact most people on here have a 1.25" body lift. I work with a guy with a 03 rub with a 4" suspension 1.25" body lift with 35"s

Going from 33s to 35s is a lot more than tire clearance .Its a bigger step than some think to do it anywhere near right .If ya don't its only for looks . Skimp on it and eventually you will only like to look at it and not drive it . Add the cost of gears , brakes , steering and you have long passed the cost of making room for the tires . I know it sucks but its the truth .

I know you need to upgrade the brakes and steering. I just assumed OP knew that so I only answered about the body lift.

A 1.25 inch body lift is fine.

Bl is fine plus the thousands to properly spend to make with work correctly.
