Lift and tire help needed. Any input or photos would be great. Thanks
 
1 Attachment(s)
I bought a 2013 JKU 4 door Sport about a month ago. I am thinking of adding a 3.5" suspension lift, 35" tires and maybe a 1.5" body lift.
Do I need to modify anything else to run a 3.5" lift?
Do body lifts look bad?
Could I fit bigger than a 35" tire on after the lift?
What kind of price do you think I would be looking at?
RoughCountry any good?
Anybody know how much higher my ride would be after suspension, body and tires.
Any help would be great.
Thanks
Here is what I am starting with.

All you need bid is 2.5" to run a 35" tire. Scrap the BL Idea.
Your asking for all kinds of issues 3-4" if not done correctly. The JK is very sensitive to driveline/steering geometry changes.
RC is a bottom level kit IMO.

3.5 is asking for more money and work. Depending on what you want to do with the jeep look into teraflex, rock krawler and metal cloak just to name a few of the more popular companies.

I have 35's and 2.5 AEV with no clearance issues. Higher than 3 inches and you need to spend $ to ensure it is done correctly. Rough country is bottom tier from what friends have said.

Rowley;

check out my lift/wheels/tires I just did last week. Might be of some help seeing that you are looking to do something similar.
