Lift kit help
Ok so I currently own a 93 YJ. And when I got it a 3in body lift was installed on it. And it rides really rough. So I want to buy a suspension lift for it. And my question is, What lift will fit my tires? cause ive seen that a 3-4in lift will fit 33's. But currently I have 35's on my BODY lift. So im not sure what to look for when I buy a lift kit. Cause I love my hight now and I would hate to go higher.

to the OP: there must be more to the story for you to fit 35's with only a 3 inch body lift. I would bet that there are lift shackles involved also. The lift shackles should also go away if you find you have them. I agree with the other poster about getting rid of the 3" body lift and install a 1" body lift in its place. You should spend some time researching the various lift manufacturers and tie that in with a budget. If it were my money I would buy the best possible lift I could afford. Rubicon Express is what I have and it has not let me down. I have heard great things about BDS and Old Man Emu. Remember also that getting a 4 inch lift will most likely involve the need for a slip yoke eliminator kit and a new rear driveshaft.
Also OME and BDS(I have BDS) is not much more that Rough Country but it will ride nice and not sag where Rough Country is called that for a reason. Even on a smooth asphalt road itll feel like you are off road.

Keep in mind that tire "fitment" can mean different things to different people depending on how you plan to use your Jeep. Mostly on-road driving with a little light trail ridding won't need nearly the amount of flex (i.e. wheelwell space) as a dedicated rock crawler.
