request: pics of 3 inch lift, and 31 inch tires

i know i should be able to find this using the search very easily, but i just searched for 30 minutes and didn't find anything. so does anybody have any pictures of a jeep cherokee lifted 3 inches, with 31 inch tires.

im trying to get a 3 inch lift for my jeep, and my dad doesn't want me to. hes used to seeing people lift them 6-7 inches, and hes worried about it rolling over. so i want to show him that 3 inches really isn't gonna make is dangerous

I dont have any pics, but I have a 2" lift and I like the way it handles now more than I did when it was at stock hight. With the right equipment another inch wont make a big difference. If hes worried about you rolling, why are ya in an SUV? Although Cherokees have a ton less body roll than most SUV'S I have driven and seen. Dont sweat it, they'll let ya do what ya want to your Jeep soon enough. I was 15 when I got mine and they didnt want me to touch it, im 17 now and as long as its my money what I say goes. Just gotta work in your authority, lol.

If he's worried about COG, 3" won't really make THAT much of a difference. Get some wheels with less backspacing to widen the stance lowering the COG. Also, at that height, just keep the swaybars connected and you'll be perfectly fine. Mine's about 5" and i have 4" of backspacing on my wheels and with all swaybars connected, it handles just fine. No complaints about feeling any more body roll than stock. As long as you don't drive like a maniac, you'll be fine.

hres mine, 3 inch rustys full pack, 31x10.5 bfg AT and the bush hacker flares.

You cant really see in this pictures but the rear sits a good bit higher than the front so i think once it gets warm im going to add an 1.5" spacer

He failed you because the license was sip tied on instead of bolted on?? Down here in Texas most of our licenses are held on with bailing wire.

I have and Old Man Emu 3" lift, and its MUCH better than stock. Not just offroading purposes, but on-road function as well. My jeep handles, and rides substantially better than stock. Like said before, get yourself some wheels with less backspacing so the tires stick out farther giving you even more stability on the road. I still have stock wheels, and would like the tires to stick out more, but its still extremely stable on the road, and the suspension is much smoother. It will also help if you don't get rediculous tires - my BFG's are very smooth and perform excellent offroad. A 3" lift with 31" tires is very practical for a daily driver/weekend warrior. Just don't go the cheap way out...
