TJs with 4" lift, 1"BL and 35s

I know this is a common setup on TJs, and that it will have enough clearance, but wanted to see what everybody was running. If your running Metalcloaks that's a plus
Im looking to run 35 MTRs, a 4" HD Currie lift, and a 1"BL, and already have the Metalcloaks. I don't want to get rid of the BL because ill lose my ultra-high clearance tummy tuck

That may be too much for 35s. Go with 3" springs, maybe even 2".

Yeah if you already have metal cloaks I don't think you will need 5 inches of total lift. I would keep it low and go with some 2.5 or 3 inch springs

4 inch SL, 1 inch BL (not sure how much the springs have settled though

I could probably lower it an inch, but I am lazy

Hmmm im having quite a hard time deciding how i want this setup. And i dont want to do it twice. Maybe i could go with Currie's 3" HD springs, keep the BL and possibly add an inch coil spacer IF needed. ehhhh

Thanks, either way i'd still like to see some nice TJs sitting on 35s with ~3.5 to ~5 inches of lift

This is how my Jeep sits now on 33x12.5 and Rough Country 2.5 lift (which is sagging) and a 1" BL

I just put 4" currie coils under my TJ. I thought it might look too tall with 35's and cloaks. I was online last night looking for similar setups with cloaks to help me decide. I found a few pictures of TJ's running the exact setup you speak of with metal cloak fenders in this thread, and I didn't think they looked goofy....

Thanks, i was just looking at that, can't really find the exact lift/tire combo i was looking for. but it does give me an idea. Im really stuck right now. Im keeping the BL for sure, because of the tummy tuck, but not sure on 3" or 4" coils

did you ever have any clearance problems or rubbing while wheeling? I know a guy who had problems clearing 35s in the rear with a 4" lift

Everything clears. My tires are word down to a little over 34 inches though. New tires come in Friday, so it might change things then

You have to trim the tub a little and make sure the axle is centered to not rub.
