Can anyone show me what a 4" lift and 1" body on a cj7 looks like with 35" tires

Im looking to purchase this stuff tomorrow, just kinda worried if it will fit and still flex. Never seen one with this set up. If you can put some pics up with discription of the brand of the lift, I would really appreciate it. im looking to run 4" trailmaster with a 1" daystar rubber body lift, with 35-12.50. thanks

4" lift with 1" body lift and 35" will work, but you gonna have to trim the body to get full flex. 4" lift and 1" will snuggly tuck 33" tires.

35" will rub!

I agree -- I've got a 4" suspension lift anda 2.5" body lift, and my 35's barely clear without rubbing.

Also, if you still have the OEM narrrow track axles, your turning radius will be significantly increased (inside of the front of the tires will hit the front springs) with those tires, unless you either install wheel spacers (about $200 for good ones) or buy custom wheels with different backspacing (very expensive).

Here are a couple of pics. Tough Country springs.



Everything clears with the additional clearance that TJ flares allow, they do however rub inside of the rear wheel well when flexed, I am installing 1.25 wheel spacers to the rear to eliminate that issue.

Wheels are 10 inch with 4 inch backspacing.

My Jeep is a lot like cshutchinson's. HD RE 4.5" lift with 1" body lift.



Depending on what you do, you'll need to trim the rear fenderwell because the rear tire will move back as it moves up.

If you still worry about rubbing, you can bumpstop the axle before the tire impacts a fender.

Vibration? Bump steer? Wandering? Read the article (sticky) on Steering, suspension, and driveline.
