Lift question?

I am about to buy a 95 Jeep ZJ. I've seen this guy around town that has a sweet lookin ZJ sitting on 35's. I wanted to know what is the largest suspension lift you can order for a ZJ. The biggest I've found in catalogs and online is 3-4.5. If there aren't any bigger than that, how could I go about lifting mine more to accomodate larger tires?

I've heard about SOA conversions and doing a body lift.... what are your comments on lifts? What would give me more clearance?

The largest lifts really depend on the amount of cash you are willing to spend. I have the RE 4.5 with spacers. RK makes a 7 inch lift (just say no), Clayton makes a long arm kit and so does Kevin Fell.

You will need to regear, possibly upgrade your axles, and other issues will arise.

I'm running 33s and with cutting could fit 35s.

first you cant do a soa lift since you dont have leaf springs and also the GCs are unibodies so you cant do a body lift. i have the same setup as texaszj1 and i live the kit. i am running 33s but would not go 35s with the kit. yeah you could hack alot to fit them, but i had to hack my front bumper just for 33s. i have not heard anything about the rockcrawler lift, so i cant tell you about it. all i know is it is a 7" long arm kit for 2k.

Yeah 7" is about the biggest kit you can buy, but several places make 8" lift springs. If your running that much lift, you should definitely be running atleast 36's, otherwise its gonna be really tippy.
