If there is a lot of room and you never rub then it's the 4" but if you rub the tires a lot then the 2 1/2" would be it.

I get older and they stay the same age.
91' YJ, D30 EZ, F8.8 locked & 410's, BDS4+" lift, 35" BFG's on 15x8 RC, 8,000lb Ramsey, etc.

Measure from the bottom of your rocker panels. Stock panels are 18" off the ground with the stock 27" tires.

Example: If your Jeep measures 24" at the rocker panels and you are running 31" tires, than your lift is 4".

(6" higher than stock measurement at panels, minus 2" from total for the increased tire height)

Hi there Moxley,
I checked out yer jeep pic in your signature- very nice jeep there.
What kind of lift do you have? Which company? Do you recommend it for on-road use...maybe 2% ill be using it offroad...did you buy online? website?

Did you need any mods with the 3" suspension? pitman drop or SYE? or was it pretty straight forward...tell you the truth, yours is the first jeep with lift that I wish mine looked like...I love the lift.

Also, did you buy new or longer shackles? or are they the stock shackles? Please advise what you think. Thanx. Post here and /or email me info/pics at
