stretch kits brands...5" or 7"

is stretching a TJ 5" going to help very much on steep rocky climbs? ledges etc?



any experience here on the forum with Genright?


what about the Clayton long arm plus 5" stetch kit?


any other ideas or brands for stretching a TJ?

It should help it just on here not a lot of people have done it, usually it wouldn't be thought of until you would go to 38s or larger. I would go look at pirate4x4, plenty of people have done it on there, but be careful posting they are not nice and friendly like here.

And you asked such a simple question too.

Stupid forum. Good for nothing.

No reason to be a ****** man. You only gave this place less than 30 min and this was nearly at midnight. This place closes down at 5pm when the work day ends! haha

Pirate is where you'll find your answer...when I get my funds to do the D60 swichover, i'll be shooting for around 105-108" stretch, but i'll be building it as Claytons are just RIDICULOUS in cost, but the price reflects the quality. i agree though, 38" min...i'll be shooting for 39.5-42" tires.

What about a 5" stretch running 35s?

Is this a waste or do you suffer too much on breakover etc.....?

LJ's pull it off. Think about it. Personally I wouldn't do a stretch if I didn't plan on going larger overall.

And Cherokees. And a whole lot of them pull it of on 35s or smaller.

That's what she said.
