i like the 3.5'' lift with 33's it does awesome i am going to put 1'' spacers in to get 4.5'' lift once i order all 8 adjustable control arms. the 33's tuck percfectly in the rear to here is a pic ( dont mind the bumper i broke the clip to hold it up lol)
yeah i got a steal on all my stuff too. i put my bumper back on today and it only rubs when turning really sharp but not even bad ill have to trim maybe a 1/2 inch max. i also got a helluva good deal on my rims tires. i bought a bronco about 9 months ago for 400 bucks with a 4 inch lift and those tires and ive parted it all out and made all my money back and then some and i kept the tires. so basically they were free. and the rims i picked up for 20 bucks from my friend. so i took them to my buddys shop and swapped everything. TOTAL. as of right now between lift/tires/rims i have 320 invested.
280 front 3.5 springs and all 4 shocks from IRO
20 front v8 springs to go in the rear
tell me thats not a steal.
and im going to go get fixed rustys rear lower arms from the junkyard for 20 bucks some time this week. not sure when ill get around to doing them though. i hit a speed bump doing 40 today and the rear didnt even rub on the tires from that. im also thinking of doing a spacer in the rear to make it a little more equal probably just a 3/4 inch though. we will see. and i know many of you are gonna say "what about your front track bar. theres away around it but it only works for 3.5 and less lift. you just take out the track bar bolt on the axle and theres about 2 inches extra on that bracket and you just drill a hole there and move the track bar. it works great. rear trackbar isnt really necessary at this height but i may order the RE drop bracket. i just wanted to see what i could do with a tight budget. tell me what you think about those awesome deals.
just another note. since his and mine have 33s they dont look nearly as big as they are. mine is a little taller than me if you measure to the roof rack or about 2 inches shorter than me to teh roofline. and im 6'3''. go outside and measure how tall your stock zj is.
A LOT of JF'ers have found the F>R to be extremely useful, especially on a budget. I'm planning on new rear springs at some point down the road, but a set of 3/4" spacers was a hell of a lot cheaper when I had just dropped ~$500 on a lift. I think it works just fine...
So you have a 3.5" with 3/4" spacers? hows that work out for you? i want to do the same thing but was worried about control arm length?
haha im modeling mine after his. i love how his looks even though its on 31s but i love those cherokee wheels. he obviously has front spacers too though. daystar. you can see them. be prob did 1 1/2 rear with 3/4 front. maybe 3/4 all the way around but idk. id get some RE spacers. i hear a lot of bad things about day star.
oh and coolio 365. did that come with shocks?! i got rc shocks and i also got v8 rear springs because i have a i6 and that only gives you about 3 inches. the v8 is 3.5. so i got all 4 springs, shocks, and wheels and tires for 320. if you got all that you got a hell of a deal. was yours used? did you get track bars? control arms? anything?
