Pics--new 35's on RE 3.5 LA, need more lift???

Well, I got my new 35x12.50x15 BFG KM2's and decided to put them on just to see how they look. I also bought ACOS for the Jeep to give it a total of 5 inches but have not put them on yet. The low cog is actually growing on me a little but what do you think about how she is sitting now, should I throw 1.5-2 more inches on her???

How much up travel do you have now?

I'd leave it or lower it some.

That's about how much wheel travel I have and it's perfect for me, although you may want to raise the front an inch.

It was tight with 33's. I would for sure have to put longer bump stops in to keep from stuffing it hard.

I'd put them up front at least for more clearance.

I would add more lift for more articulation. If you decide not to, make sure you extended your bumpstops far enough so you don't destroy your fenders.

I"m digging the low COG, but for articulation you might want a 1" BL or the 4.5" springs from RE...

I think it looks good, but for off-road you'll probably have to do a bit more.

a 1" spacer in the front to level, and a 1" BL. Then see how much bump stop you need.

I'd try to level the front with the rear but don't llift it anymore than enough to level it... looks good.

by the way, I have 35's and about half an inch less lift than you, as long as you bumpstop properly you wont rub......

Something about those KM2s that I just don't like. Maybe its that the sidewall doesnt have such an aggressive pattern, although this one has a toughr sidewall than the old mud-terrains.

Hey Bo, here's another option.

1. Add a 1" spacer to the front to level.

2. Trim 1.5" inches from your flares.

3. Check your bumpstops.

4. Go wheeling and have fun.

It's a good life. My wife doesn't look under my Jeep and I don't count her shoe boxes...
