Body lift

Should I get a 3" body lift? I have a 4" suspension and 35" tires

One of the most dreaded things in the jeep world. What would make you want more lift? Are you rubbing?

1.25" is the most you should go on a body lift

Will that stop my tires from rubbing?

when my TJ had just a 2.5" suspension and 33s it didn't rub. I doubt you need a 4" suspension and 3" BL for 35s

IF the suspension lift is a quality 4 inch lift not the rough contry garbage. You should be able to add the 1.25 inch body lift and be good as far as flexing goes. If it rubs when you turn you eithier need wheel spacers ot you can adjust your steering stops.

1995 YJ. 2 inch BDS Spring lift. 1 inch shackle lift. 1.25 inch JKS Body Lift 33x12.5x15's. Engo 10,000 pound winch.

Get a Daystar 1" and do it right the first time. I have a BDS 3.5" lift and the DS 1" and I could fit 35's easily without rubbing. It might when flexing, but I don't get out that much.

Use tj flares can make room for 35's both front and rear. To compliment the rear tj flares, use aftermarket flat fenders.

Replacing the worn out ruby mounts with new polys helps too. I wouldn't go any higher than 1.25" poly bushings to replace the stockers.
