XJ RE6025 3.5" Lift Kit

I'm looking to get the RE6025 3.5" lift with RE mono tube shocks and RE steering stabilizer. I know the recommended tires are 31x10.5. Is that the largest i can go without any trimming? I would like to do 32x11.5 and i can add wheel spacers but will i have any other problems with the fender, vibrations, regearing, drive performance? I also wont be doing much offroading, mostly my daily driving. Thanks

It's your rig so do whatever you want with it but I don't understand lifting a rig that doesn't go offroad. You spent a ton of money to do it right, it never rides like stock and your gas mileage drops.

Without the spacers you will rub the control arms, with the spacers you will rub the fenders.

I'm running the 3.5 super ride kit. On 32x11.5x15 on 4.5 backspacing. No rubbing unless I flex the front end a little. But my flares are going away soon.

Thanks for all the input and picture. I think I'll stick with 31x10.5. For Kevin, I don't do any offroading but my xj's (second owner) rear leaf springs are shot, all shocks are leaking, tires are going bald and rims are scuffed up so i thought i might as well throw a lift and some new tires on it for more of an aggressive look rather than replacing them with OEM parts. That's why im looking at the SuperRide kit rather than the Superflex.

I can understand that. You might also look at the Old Man Emu stuff. Everything I've ever read has said that brand offers a ride as good as if not better than stock plus they make low lifts so you could stay at 235s or 30s and still make the repairs you need to.

Even with 10.5s this is how close my tires are to the leaf springs.

I'd just grab some new wheels instead of wheel spacers. You can get some cragar steelies for probably cheaper than a set of 4 wheel spacers. I had 32's on a 3" lift with 4.5" of BS and had the backside of the front bumper just barely trimmed to clear the tires. Couldn't flex at all without it rubbing, but it looked good, drove well, and I just decided to hack up the fenders when I started offroading with it.

Nice..This is what I went for as well. But my RE Shocks are in back order.

Any shots of the rig..on how far the 265s come out of the side of the fender?

RE 3.5 Super Ride with 32s:

Trimmed the front fender trim only. Haven't put the bumper caps back on yet.....they will need some extensive trimming.

Rig looks awesome Will951. I think I'm gonna stick 31x10.5 on mine but i haven't decided on wheels yet. I like how DC-2 rims look but I'm unsure about the 3.6" BS. Cragar Soft 8's are also another option im looking at. I would like a wider stance but i dont want to overdo it where itll cause problems. The Super ride kit suggest 4"-4.75" BS on 8" rims. Is it better to run 8" wide rims on 10.5" wide tires? Any thoughts?

Yes the 10.50's work great on 15x8" wheels. 4" back spacing works great also if you want the wider stance.

I bought that same lift kit and hated it. The front springs are way too stiff. I wish I would have gone with the same height kit from Rough Country, much cheaper, made in the USA and better quality.
