3' to 3.75' suspension lift

Does anyone know who makes a lift that is 3 to 3.75 inches

I'm currently running the rc 2.5 lift and I want more lift but dont want 4' due to chance of needing sye

4" isn't some magic number for where you need a sye and dc drive shaft. Any lift that requires a case drop should have these things in place of that case drop.

Add 1" spacers up front or a 1.25" BL.

Doing an sye can only benefit your future mods and shouldn't be avoided.

Don't bother changing to all suspension. You won't gain any performance benefits, but your driveline angles will go all to hell.

I just did my SYE and new driveshaft install after a year of having a t case drop. I don't know how I went so long with out it. And like someone said earlier 4 inches isn't a magic number, with 3.75 inches you'll need the sye or you'll just be lowering the skid and not really using the lift to its full potential

I might just run 1" coil spacer front and back, that way it'll save me money and I can get the sye


I'm not running a transfer case bc I have a mml

Then you will most likely need a case drop, or sye. Highline it and leave the lift alone.

Another few questions I have

What size bump stops do I need to go to if I had 3/4 spacers on to my 2.5 lift? Do I need extended brake lines and longer rear sway bar links

I'll be at 3.25 of lift

If your current bump stops are working with your tires you wont need new bump stops.
