Will a 4" trailmaster lift and a 2" body allow for 35" baja claws.

My Jeep has a 4" trailmaster Lift and a 2" body not installed yet. Will that be enough to runs some 35 -12- 50 's

also, anyone running the baja claws, are they worth it. im lookin for good off road and good on road, i know the superswamper tsl are the shizz but they wear out so fast.

That lift will absolutely allow for those tires. that should be about perfect for looks and flex.

i think you'd be better off using a 1" body lift instead of the 2", 35's will still fit.

35's will actually fit under just a 4" lift. I tried it on my jeep just to see how it would look and it looks great.

It all depend on the type of terrain you're looking at getting into. You SHOULD be able to fit 35's with 4 inches. but I'd put more because like obstacle that need a little flex. And I don't think you'd have enough room to flex with ONLY the 4 inches...

Personally, I'd do some trimming and adding alternative flares (TJ flares or tube fenders) before I put 6" of lift on my CJ.

Thanks for the input, I may go with just the 1" daystar rubber body mount.

What kind of wheels are you running? Still on factory (narrowtrack) axles? You may have a decent amount of rubbing with 35s on factory skinny axles and wheels with factory backspacing.

4" of lift and 35"s wil rub if flexed even a little. The rear wheel well opening will rub. The opening isn't 35" at the bottom. I have 3 1/2" backpacing on my wheels and NT axles (78) and I rub the inner wheel well part of the tub in the rear and the frame where the steering box mount is in the front at full lock and flex. I bent my fenders with 33" Baja Claws with the same lift. I removed my fenders and cut the rear wheel well opening out to clear my 35"s.

Does anyone worry about being top heavy? I have the 4" TM lift and run 33s. Someone told me not to get too tall. Big deal or no?

I worry about being top-heavy, but that's why I don't run 6" of lift on my CJ.

Yeah, the 1" body looks nice. You can hardly tell its there. And with the right rear bumper you can't tell at all.

I had the Baja Claws on my 86 CJ with 4 inches of lift. They did not rub on the street and I never wheeled it. I have some pics if you email me I'll send them to you. NoNeck@NoNEcksChevelle.com I LOVED my BAJA CLAWS! They looked awesome and were actually very quiet on the street and rode nice. Sold the Jeep before I got a lot of miles on the tires and again I never wheeled it,. but I would not hesitate to buy the tires again. I am now running Kumho MT 33's with advertised 4 inch lift which ended up netting me 6 inches.
