Yes they recommend a 3" lift. I have a body lift to get the extra 1".

I have factory front shocks and OME rear shocks (rattle canned black). The factory shocks only had about 1/2" of uptravel so it was very rough (slammed hard) going over every little bump.

That's a ridiculous amount of room for 35's. When I highline my fenders, I'll have room for 40's and I'm only on 2.5" of lift.

OlllllllO

I agree, here my old jeep on 35's with 2.5 inchs of suspension and a 1" body lift. If I would have went with highlines I could have fit some big *** tires under it.


My jeep may be gone but im still here.

There's the right wheelbase for every obstacle and the right obstacle for every wheelbase.

I agree with them. I dont have highlines, but custom ones similar to them and I have plenty of room for my 35s with a 2.5" lift and no body lift

Now I'm running 3" with a highline kit, how are you guys doing this without one? Just really minimizing uptravel? Mine has a lot of uptravel...

I'll try to get pics soon...

Where were you rubbing with the 2" BB?

Did you trim the rear:

I really wouldn't say it's a ridiculous amount of room, 2" would probably be just right, AEV doesn't make 2" springs which is probably why they tell you to run 3". They also want you to trim the body on the insides of there fender flairs with less than 3" of lift for 35's. So there saying run 3" without trimming the body or less lift with trimming the body.

Your running 2.5" springs and at least a 1" body lift, and I think a 1" spacer up front, we can call that 3.5" of lift.

Man I see some trick parts, but seriously were you running dana 30 and dana 35 combos??? Not knocking, it just seems like you would upgrade the 35 at least. Thats a wicked looking rig. I would race it like crazy.

There are other ways of adding belly clearance without lifting your vehicle off the axles...like 40s, 42s, 44s, etc

It is for guys that are crawling and not for the mud guys. With a low COG the jeep is extremely stable even while off camber. I know I had spent alot of time tuning my old system and I only flopped once with it. A good setup requires alot more than just slapping some random 2" springs and some random shocks.

it seems like it gets pretty intense too, what with some guys going as far as cutting the frame and pushing transfer cases up into the body more. too much work for me but if i was more of a techy and lived out west i'd guess i'd be doing the same thing

It may be hard to believe but everything you read on the internet is not always true. The trussed super 35 in my old jeep held up great,I never had a problem with it. There are alot of forum members that have seen pics of how the jeep was used and it wasnt always pretty.

My jeep may be gone but im still here.
