Welcome aboard.
Tell us more about yourself and how you plan to use the Jeep; then we can suggest how to spend your money.
5" of lift is pretty ambitious for just 35's, especially on a Sahara...

Welcome and shop around for your planned lift....This has to be done "correct" with no corners cut... if you want to go for the 5 inch..

Be sure you select the right gearing...

Enjoy the new toy..

i will def use it on the beach and in the snow might even do a little trail riding, but either way i def wanna lift it, right now i have a durango with a 6 inch lift with 33s on it. i was looking at skyjacker 4-5 inch lift it say i could fit 35s

Hilldweller 07-22-2009 11:26 AM

you only need 2.5" for 35's with a JK...

deekum1627 07-22-2009 12:23 PM

Do you have money for 40's?
:punk:
Don't forget to regear ---- and maybe buy axles if you go over 35's.

this is true but your not gonna have any room for flex out on the trail.

deekum1627 07-22-2009 08:15 PM

i think im just going with the 4-5 inch with 35s that would look good i think.

Why not geta rubi, much better set up for bigger tires vs the sahararaaa.

deekum1627 07-22-2009 09:44 PM

what would be the diffs i got all the options and its more for my wife and she wanted leather and stuff that only comes on the sahara

Front and rear dana 44 axles with locking diffs for traction
4:1 T-case
4.11 gears

Over all a far better jeep to put big tires on. However happy wife equals happy life so keep that in mind.

deekum1627 07-22-2009 10:04 PM

well the rear is a dana 44 and i got 3.73 gears this is the truck

The higher you go, the more things you have to swap/upgrade to keep things from braking and keep handling safe.

I know plenty of people that wheel on 35's with 2.5" of lift; I have 33's and no lift on my Sahara ---- rear tires rub the fenders at full stuff due to the backspacing of my aftermarket wheels.

Take a look at the Nth Degree 3.5" lift; it's fairly comprehensive.

Maybe it's my age, but I really don't understand people that lift their vehicles because "it looks good"....

deekum1627 07-23-2009 10:20 AM

i seen a show where they did the lift i want and 35s and it look sick that why i wanna go that route
