Help me run 36's!

Ok... So here is the deal, Currently I have a 4" Zone Offroad Kit. My uncle came into town and gave me some 2" coil spacers. As of right now I have 33" tires and I just have the transfer case drop. I have 0 drive line vibrations. Would it work if I put the 2" coil spacers on and 36" tires and still have no driveline vibrations? One opinon I heard in person was, "The tires will rasie the axles up to create a minimal differnece it what you have now. You should be able to run with zero drive line angles." Thanks

If you believe that, you're not thinking. The tires raise up EVERYTHING. The orientation between the axles and frame is not changed with tire size. It will be changed with the 2" spacers by 2". That's FAR too much to be running on short arms and without a fixed output, double cardan drive shaft, and correct pinion angle, vibes will be huge. If I were you, I'd be more concerned about losing that t-case drop since that skid already hangs down low enough. Other than that, you've already got plenty of room for 36's but I doubt the rest of your jeep is up to the task.

Besides, why 36's? 35s are cheaper, and there's more variety. I'd do a lot more research.

Hold onto something... Quick!!!
