I Gotta Lift Question

Ok, I noticed how it said that the Rubi in the new Tomb Raider movie had a 4" susp. lift and 35" tires. Is that possible? If so, is it recommended. I thought that for every one inch lift you get you go up one inch in tire. Im still contemplating on what lift to get and how big..I want to fit 35's but I dont know how big a lift you have to get. I was thinking about 3 in susp. 2 in body but now I dont know.. I would appreciated the feedback

you should probably post in the lift section...is this a rubi your talking about?

2" body won't look very good, seen it - yuck, I got a buddy with 4.5" lift on a rubi and 33s and it will stuff em pretty good but they don't rub.

3" suspension lift w/2" BL will work but it's not the best set up for 35's. Either go 6" lift or 4" lift w/1" BL for the 35's. If you want to get real expensive you could run the Tera-Flex 4" long arm LCG kit. In a recent review of the Tera-Flex 4" long arm LCG kit the jeep w/the system ran 37's. The magazine was 4wheeldrive and sport utility.
RE 4.5 kit or 5.5 kit would also work well w/35's. Good luck

Heres the Jeep I know:
1. RE4.5" lift running 35's--no prob
2. Tera 4"w/ 1" spring spacers and 1" BL running 35's--no prob
3. Tera 4" long arm running 35's--no prob
4. RE4.5" lift running 37's--added washers to keep from rubbing
All of those Jeeps are Rubicons and they all have had no problems with running 35's or bigger. You may have to lift the amount the tire stuffs into the fender. The tire still droops a lot and they get plenty of flex. I got a 02 SE and I am going to be running 35's with a 4" Tera and a 1" BL.

Peace Out
