My TJ has about 4.5" of suspension lift, and 1.25" BL. The BL isn't needed for tire clearance or anything, it's needed for drivetrain clearance with the MML.
40" LTBs on 1 tons.
Considering the tires/wheels each weigh 150lbs and the axles weigh something in the neighborhood of 500lbs rear and 600lbs front, compared to the 3" lift on 33s I had which was maybe 80lbs per wheel/tire and the axles weighing maybe 150 to 200lbs each, it probably has a lower COG overall with about 1000lbs added at the axle areas.
The D300 t-case is also MUCH heavier than the NP231 that was in it... especially after adding the HD rear output with t-case brake.
This is all just thinking out loud and have no real math to figure out the "real" COG. Somewhere I saw a formula that involves weighing your Jeep at all 4 tires on level ground, then parking it uphill at like a 20 or 30 degree grade, weigh the wheels again, and repeat this downhill, left and right and do something with the numbers to find the overall COG.
Yeah i read or heard about that too. And i saw a picture of a it being done.
Anyway, thanks for the pictures guys. All nice jeeps. Im looking to do 35's with about 3" of lift and fenders from MetalCloak. but with the jeep form there site, i can prolly run 37's. We'll see.
2013 JKU Sahara- 4" Rough Country & 35"Toyo's on 18" XD Addicts. More to come.
Used to run 2" of lift in the front, nothing in the rear. 36" Iroks. 2" stretch in the front and 1" in the rear.
Here is how she sits right now:
Pretty much going to be a buggy when i'm done. Trying to decided right now how much (if any) of the stock frame to keep.
