JMO, but with Metalcloak fenders, I think 3" springs are plenty enough to run 35's with a 1.25" body lift.

For reference, I am running 3" springs, 1.25" BL, and 35's. I had to adjust my bumpstops just a little bit to keep the tires out of the fenders. If I had Metalcloaks, there would be more than enough room.

Someday, I hope to get their aluminum fronts and rears.

Thanks guy's! i really appreciate all the feedback. Im facing some tuff decisions. Im starting to believe that 4" of lift will be too much especially Currie, since it may sit a little higher.
Ive been taking a big long look at Metalcloaks springs, i like the way they sit, and apparently have a good ride on and off road. I saw a guy running their 3.5" coils on his TJ with 35s and it sat pretty nice. I guess ill wait for more feedback on those coils. Im not really looking for a LCOG, bc a lot of the trails i ride is about ground clearance. But then again i dont want it sitting too tall.
I know 3.5" is just a half inch off from 4" of lift an may not make a difference, but ive heard that Currie sits more at 4.5"

This is what I run, minus the Metalcloaks.

Bump!
Think i may be going with MC 3.5" coils and keeping the 1.25" BL. I plan on outboarding my rear shocks and relocating the rear coil buckets.

Bump for more Jeeps on 35s with 3-5" of lift. And Jeeps with outboarded rear shocks.

The pic of my Jeep I posted above has the items you asked for. Outboarded rear shocks and relocated stock upper coil perches, neither of which affected ride height.

Did it effect your ride quality?

When I outboarded, I changed a whole bunch of other stuff while I was at it. Axle swap, re-gear, springs, shocks, SYE, etc,. It's hard to say what the exact affect the outboarding did, but it does ride very nice. It does not bottom out like it used to on whooped out trails. Also handles speedbumps and driveway entrances better at the mall without the side to side rocking.

5" of lift seems to be a lot of lift for 35s. Espicially with MC fenders.

I used to run 3.5" SL and 1.25" BL and always felt us easy where I wheel (lots of hills) from the suspension unloading.

Here is mine 3.5" + 1.25" on 35s and stock fenders bumpstopped correctly. Never close to the stock fenders.

Nice! always been a fan of your Jeep. While im doing suspension im going to be swapping in my 8.8 and putting on 35s. So i figured i might as well spend the extra money and outboard my shocks while im at it. Mainly so i can have the rear coils sit at a good angle, but also to run longer shocks.

Well thank-you, but I am certainly no expert. I did a ton of reading of threads and builds on here, and decided to go for it.

Having everything out of the way, like you will soon, makes everything easy to get to. I have a couple minor things I will probably change the next time I tear into it. Just need time and money.

Good luck with your project. Measure a ton, cut once.
