Are you considering installing a 3" body lift to fit some bigger tires and you don't want to pay for a suspension lift?

If yes, I would highly suggest avoiding that idea. A 3" body lift looks awful (in my opinion) and will raise the center of gravity up and make it drive really bouncy. My jeep came with a 2" body lift, at first I didn't mind it, but after a little bit I started hating the look of those huge gaps between the body and frame. After removing the body lift, not only did my jeep look so much cleaner, but the handling improving a bunch. Feels more grounded now.

If you're looking for a 3" lift, I think a lot of people do a 2" budget lift and 1" body lift. That would perform a lot better than just a 3" body lift.

I attached my comparison photos when I removed my 2" body lift. BEFORE=2" body lift. AFTER=no body lift.

Thanks, the AFTER has a 4" suspension lift and 33x12.5x15 inch tires. And the oem fenders were cut flat.

What are you trying to do with your jeep? What's the goal?

Front and rear. Front I measured at 2 in, rear I eyeballed because I got lazy.

Sanded them. Taped a straight and even line. Cut the fender using a dremel and cutting disc. Attached some car door trim to the edges to give a super clean look. Then I bedlined them. Probably costs me about $50, including the dremel.
