4" Lift with 1" body and 35" tires??????

Anyone had any experience with 35 x 12.5 x 15 tires on 15x10" wheels with a 4" lift and a 1" body lift????? That is what I was told I would need to do to put 35's on ???

Tire Rub?

Help.

Rob

I have a YJ with 4.5 Rubicon Express XD kit plus a 2 inch body lift. I have 33s. I removed my bump stops and trimmed my rear fenders.

However, at full compression in the rear it barely touches the fender. I would think you would need to trim you fenders as well since you are talking about bigger tires and less lift.

That is my exact setup, but since it is not ready for the trail, I am only driving on street. Wihout 1" BL, it rubbed quite easily on the street, but after, I can't get it to rub while on road, but For anything more than easy wheeling, I think trimming and/or more lift would be better..

I am going to add 1" shackle lift to the sagging front, but this is what mine looks like for now...

I'm going to upgrade to 35's from 33's in the not to distant future , I have a 4" suspension lift, 1" shackle lift, and a 3" body lift (yeah I know thats too much BL). So I should have enough lift right? I may also put some different flares on there to create a bit more space

I had an 85 with a 4" lift, 2 1/2 shackle and 2" frame lift with 36" TSL's on it for the road and trail. Only rubbed the bottom of the fender and front frame when it got very tilted on the trails. Your set should work fine. Good luck.

Should be fine, but you may want to at least swap out the rear flares...the stock CJ flares will rub where a stock YJ flare will not. Also, you should run proper bump stops...the purpose of them is to keep the tires off the sheetmetal. This is about 4.5" of suspension lift (2.5" springs, 2" shackle reversal up front, temporary 1.75" shackle lift out back) plus a 1" body lift, with 35's and YJ rear flares:

35x15x15 TSL's 4" and 1"BL now 1" shackle in front

my TSL's are mounted on 15x10's and I was about a 1/2" from the rear leaf springs, so I added 1.5" wheel spacers, and put the bushwacker fenders on to give some more clearance.

Mine has a 4" 4WDH kit and TJ flares. No body lift and the homemade shackles give it maybe another 1/2" of lift. I clear 35's without ever thinking about rubbing.

(IMO)I know that a YJ isnt a CJ but, my brother's YJ has a 4" superlift, 2" body, and 2" shackle and he could clear 37" tires with ease so -2" of lift and 2" of tire and you will be fine!

Thank you all for your advice. Sounds like the 35's will work if I'm not trying to climb Mt. Everest!! with the 4 or 4.5" lift 1" Body Lift. Now my new question is will my gear setup handle the 35's????

Thank you again.....This site is great for me (the part time mechanic haha)

I would definetly re-gear, what gearing depends on what tranny you have

Also you will need to upgrade to HD one peice axle shafts in the rear if you have the AMC 20 rear, regardless you need HD shafts both front and rear for 35" tires

Technically, yes, the gearing will handle the tires no problem. The problem is that with the stock gearing and the larger tires, your engine will not be operating in it's designed power band at a given speed. The way you'll notice this is that you'll have no 'get up and go'. I had the stock 3.31's (towing package) with my 35's while I was shaking out my rig after the rebuild and drove it to work for about a week. It was fine in rush hour traffic on the way home since there was a lot of traffic and we were hardly moving, but on my way to work in light traffic, pulling away from a traffic light was intolerably slow...I could walk faster and people behind me couldn't wait to get to spot where they could get out from behind me and pass. Performance/control will also be inadequate off road. If you're doing anything more than street use and very light wheeling, like BLS33 said the 1-piece alloy (don't get the cheapies like Crown & Omix-Ada) rear shafts become a must have and you should seriously consider alloy shafts for the front as well, plus I'd upgrade the lock-outs and replace the hub bolts with studs irregardless. If you like the skinny pedal and/or heavy wheeling, then don't even bother trying to keep & beef the 30. You should also weld and consider trussing the rear.

I'm running a BDS 4" and TJ flares with 35s. Looks like I could possibly run 37s with the correct bump stops.
