I would suggest 35's with that size Lift, but you'll want to make sure you have the gearing for it. Otherwise you can get away with a shorter lift and go with the 33's to save a few dollars all the way around. There is nothing wrong with 3.25" and 35's or even 33's if you like the look!I'm getting a 3.25 in suspension lift on my 2010 sahara unlimited. I'm debating if i should get 33s or 35s. I'm new to this so please help with whatever you can. what will i need to get for each? will i Need to regear?
Would you toss up some pics?I have 33" tires on stock rims and a Teraflex 2.5" coil spring lift on my 12' JKUR with 4.10 gearing--it works great offroad. I had a treaflex leveling kit before and it would rub offroad. The lifts actually look about the same on my rig. I am happy. I see a lot more issues going with 35" tires all around, tire costs, mpg, wear and tear, drivesafts, etc--with 35s, I would re-gear even with 4.10s and an auto, but that is my preference.
That looks great. Thanks! Now I'm leaning back to 33's as it would be less stress on everything...
I agree. They do look better and are slightly better offroad, but then 40s look even better and are even better offroad....... everything gets much more expensive. Don't forget the Cs will probable need reinforcing with 35s. Eventually the drivesaft, ball joints, etc. I have been thinking about doing the Cs with 33s as I offroad a lot in the summers. For me this is a perfect compromise. I can do some trails in the Sierra safely with my family and then drive home at 70 mph. I have been on 7+ rated trails so far with no problems. I plan on doing the Rubicon in a year or two with this setup. I may reinforce the Cs and and get better rock rails and that will be it.I think 35's look better on the 4-doors and 33's look better on the 2-doors. I would go with the 35's if I were you.
Looks great. Have you offroaded it yet? How was the 4 low hit? I noticed a loss just going to 33s. I purchased brackets to fix my caster before I put on the 2.5" lift, but did not need them.3.5 with 35's. 4:10 auto. Looks great IMO. Getting the caster and aligning right, a whole other story. Lol. But you modify I guess you need to expect issues that need to be resolved. I've definitely had mine. It's on a slanted driveway so the front looks higher. When on a flat street it's level.
No I literally got it back from the shop today. Had some serious alignment issues and took several shops to get it where it is now. Not the kits fault. It was people who didn't understand how to adjust the kit. Taking it to big bear Feb 7th. Will report back.Looks great. Have you offroaded it yet? How was the 4 low hit?
