Hi people I just bought a 1987 Jeep Wrangler and I have a question: I want to lift 4". Right now the Jeep has 31" tires. Can I keep the tires or I need to buy bigger tires?
What you mean by that?A 4" lift is high enough to get into the "spiral of potential problems." Start planning!
Then let me do the renovation work and later will decide to lift or not to lift...lolthe start of the never ending process when u go that high u have drivetrain issues like transfer case drops limited yoke slips cv joint driveshafts things that when u look at the lift and go thats easy tend to sneak up and bit u in the a$$ and cost more money so the morral of the story is always do the research and then triple check it
Sure, but dont' let us scare you away from a bigger lift. Lots of people do them, lots of people love them.Then let me do the renovation work and later will decide to lift or not to lift...lol
Body lift kits are an inexpensive way to get a bit more room for your bigger tires. The advantages are price and simplicity: because you're just lifting the body, all the driveline stuff stays the same. The disadvantages are lack of flex (a good kit will increase your flexibility in tough stuff). Also with the 3" lift, you start getting weird looking and you will get complications with radiators, shifters and other things. You do NOT need to replace the springs and shocks with a moderate body lift.What about "BODY LIFT KITS"?. They come in 1", 2" and 3",s. Off course, I know I still need to replace the Leaf Springs and shocks, but what are your opinions. I'm also a little bit confused about tires/rim size, my tires are 31"x10.50"x15LT so is the rim 15"x10"?
You're asking me? Remember, I'm new with Wranglers. I'm reading and reserching a lot but I need some advice about this, like I said before: I'll do the renovation first and then the lift but I need to get all the information. All your comments will be appreciated.nice jeep the re arch is a good idea heard of it done before and heard good reviews probably wont give u the same lift a 4 inch rc would though but my question is if he goes that big wont he need a transfer case drop and a slip yoke eliminator
