Wowzers, sounds like your going to have allot of fun.

If I may, like jforse said that is allot of lift. Now it is personal preference but most people will tell you that they would prefer to run smaller lifts for stability reasons. (off camber, hill climbs, and everyday street use.)

Some people alternatively run smaller lifts (3.5, 4.5, some even smaller), and add high-fenders or tube fenders to make room for the larger tires.

Here are some of the alternative that add clearance:
GenRight tube style Hi-Fenders for the Jeep TJ or LJ
Treks Offroad Products - 3" HyLine Full Replacement Tube Fenders
American Expedition Vehicles - Highline Body Kit - 97-06 Jeep Wrangler (TJ) Conversion Kit

Not saying you are wrong by any means, just making sure you explore all of your options before you spend the money.

Have fun



To Veterans past and present, thank you for your service!

It was either between a 2.5" lift with the highline fender kit and 40's or the 7.5" lift with 40's. I either like it low or tall.. the woman wont let me go low so its going to be tall. There is two unlimited's around me.. one has a 5.5" kit on 37's and the other has 7.5" on 37's.. theres really not that much of a difference in height between the two.

That 7.5 is going to be real tall. IMO 3.5"-4.5" would be much more stable.

This is 5.5 RE kit (well most of it is RE) Dana 60 / Dana 70 and 39.5 Iroks

The actual picture in that link is small. Link to a picture that is bigger and you won't have any problems.

But anyway 7.5" is a lot of lift. Like others I would say 5.5" and 40's.

Here's a buddy of mine's when it was on 40's. 60 front, 14B rear.




Now, it's going back under the knife for a motor swap (5.7 Hemi), but it's currently on 42" Rockers, homebrew highline hood, and he lowered the c/o's some.

I am going to get a Jeep and put a 7.5" lift with 35's and park it in front of your house. Everytime you look out the window you will see it.

Buy my transmission cooler. Derale TJ cooler.

Some of the less-informed around here hate the phrase "low COG".
