lift kit questions (small as possible)

What lift kit will I need to be able to fit some 37x13.50 pitbull rockers without rubbing? I'll have fullwidth d60 front and 14 bolt ff rear with 3 inch fender flares front and back from poison spyder. Keep it as low as possible for stability on the trail and reliability.

You'll be better off with a coil suspension because fine tuning the girth of the axles mentioned will be extremely difficult. The lowest I think you can go is stock springs SOA.

Skip a kit like you skipped other things. Don't be a dork.

I waw thinking about that, how hard is it to switch from leaf to coilover?

It is quite labor intensive.

From the looks of it your not ready. Like Anticanman said. It's very labor intensive. And if you want coilovers to perform to their potential you'll need to brush up on your trigonometry.

Cut fenders a 4" spring under should do it. Those axles should net you a few inches of lift too

I'm confused.

I guess that, after reading the parts listed in his post, and then what he's asking, I just assumed he was trolling. And then, I remembered that buying stuff doesn't make you an expert.

But then I thought, "How the hell do you get invested to that point and then try and figure out your lift/set up?" and then I remembered not everything on the interwebs is true.

I think Joe said it best - Don't be a dork.

Im not trolling im just asking which lift kit and size would be best to fit a 37 inch pbr with some 3 inch fender flares. Haha a little misunderstood... and I think I'll stick with leaf springs looking at the pricing for coilover kits. Im thinking like a 2.5 inch lift? Or would I want to do a 3 or 4 inch lift?

Here's my setup with 4 inches of lift, now keep in mind mine a sua with 30/8.8 combo (I know the Dana 30 and 37s is a no no but I am only running a 2.5 and have chromo shafts up front) I am sure I could run smaller lift if I where to properly bump stop it!

Thats a sweet jeep! What beadlocks do you have on there? It looks really good. That's pretty much exactly what I'm looking at doing. How stable is it on the trail??
