BL more that 1" have a great chance of rolling your car over around a corner. they are super dangerous.

I see that but I don't go around corners fast anyways because jeeps r none for that anyways I've see some around it don't look bad if u can hide it and that's easy with bumpers and rocker guards

periods...

Anywho, as stated you're gonna need to do a lot more than a 3" body lift (which isnt a good idea as stated) to run 37's and if you state your going to be on a tight budget...dont even consider it. You'll spend a few grand to get it all set up.

GET RID of the 3" BL and get a JKS 1.25 or daystar 1" BL. There cheaper and good. I hate a 3" BL when I had my 4" suspension on and I TOOK IT OFF! just run 33s. And start saving for 35s

It can cause problems and I've heard in an accident, the tub and frame are more likely to separate since there's a much larger gap between them compared to stock. It's just not very safe IMO.

Why do u want 37s? Just for show or to ride?

I know a lot of people don't like them but y does it hurt something if u do it right or is it just looks or what that is what I'm asking I will probably go with 35 first because I can get those cheap, so I can get a new front axle and do it right but I've seen a guy around here with a 4 in suspension and 3 in body lift and it looks good

If you have the wallet. Go for it. But it u don't. Don't try. 37s is a lot of stress.

If you have friends running 37s at the mall with a dana 30/ 35 and they haven't broken anything, then I'm proud of them. :D
