I own a stock 87 YJ Wrangler and have been looking to get a lift and some bigger tires. I have heard good things about Rough Country suspension lifts, and I'm looking at getting a 3" lift. I have heard you can easily run 33s with a 3" suspension, but lately i read somewhere that you don't want to go any higher than 31s. Will the 33s fit with the 3"RC lift? thanks for your help
My opinion is that a 3" lift running 33's is very borderline. You may have some rubbing. You may want to go with a 4" and be done with it. Then again not all lifts are created equal. That rule also goes for tires too.
94 YJ, 2.5, 4" ProComp Lift, 33's,
EZ Locker, Warn M8000 winch, Home made tire/jack carrier, nurf bars.
I am running the RC 3 inch lift with 33's. It rubs under heavy flex (especially with the sway bars disco'd) If you not planning on doing a lot of off-roading until your rig is done, you can do what I did and do the suspension first followed by a Body lift further down the road. pics are up on my website I think its in my signature.
Thanks Atropine, that helps alot, and the jeep looks good. If i WERE to get a 2 inch body lift along with the 3" RC lift, would that eliminate rubbing, and would I have to trim fenders? thanks again for answering all my questions guys
I am actually going with a 1 inch shackle lift,1 inch body lift and trimming my fenders (I saw how HUBDEEPs turned out and now im convinced). I'll let you know how it turns out. I figure if I need more room still I can put another 1 inch puck on. You should see this by the end of the month.
I have a 4" suspension lift and fit the 33" tires .. check my new homepage for more information about it
