I just got my new lift on and new 35's and haven't got to drive it yet because I broke a brake line on the front axle. I had a rancho 2.5" lift and before I swapped it for the skyjacker 3.5-4" lift I put the 35's on just for kick's. The rear fender flare was just barely touching the tire, after installing the new lift I can barely get my finger between the flare and the tire. I think they should advertise it as a 3" lift, not a 3.5-4" lift. Anyway I think it will ride better than the rancho and hopefully won't sag much!
You sure the rancho was a 2.5"?
I'm guessing lifts are like tires. You buy a 31" tire made by Goodyear, it might only measure 30.25, while a 31" Swamper might measure 32".
