this might sound stupid.... but its important

So I have the rustys 3 inch lift on my zj but it really doesnt look like 3 inches of lift. I have a lot of room left with 31s on, Ive rolled 34s up to it and they would fit (obviously rub on the front bumper) but still had room to flex. my cousin has a 41/2 lift on 32s on his xj and we sit even. I also sit even with my friend toyota and hes runnin 35s, I just bought my 3/4 spacers to level the front but I need to know if theres a way to meaure how much lift i actually have so i can know which quick discos to get. The xj stock measurement is 17 inches from the center of the wheel to the bottomw of the wheel well i think is this true on zjs to?







cant really tell from this picture i guess but i swear i could easily run 32s and probably run 33s with a little trimming

those 31's fit nicely. I wouldnt go any bigger. Whats so important? More lift than you paid for . I'd just get the 2-4" JKS ones.

I may be wrong, but rustys lifts tend to settle a little bit from what i have heard, so i would watch that for a little while before would do anything else to it
