Tires Size. Should I remove 3" BL?
 
2 Attachment(s)
I know opions are like elbows but I am looking for some feed back. When I bought my jeep it had a 3" body lift already installed and I have recently installed a 4" suspension lift. I am running 33" tires and I am debating on whether or not to remove the 3" body lift. See the attached pic and let me know if you think there is too much spacing between the tire and fenders. I dont want to cruise around looking like a dork with tires that look to small.

Remove it. If I had the funds to do a 3-4 inch suspension lift, I would remove the body lift installed by a prior owner.

Pretty much everyone around here is going to tell you to remove the 3" BL, or cut it down to 1".

Yes, that much of a BL is uglier than sin.

Just to clarify, I would only cut it to 1" instead of removal if you plan on a raised belly skid in the future.

Wouldn't be easier to buy a 1.25" BL? With all the crap that'll have to be removed with a 3" BL.Fan shroud 3" relocation brackets,3" grill supports,3" t case shifter bracket,3" shifter extender (if it's a 5 speed),3" longer fuel filler hose,steering linkage brace.:(

You would know that better than me. I've never installed, removed, or modified any BL over 1.25" on a Jeep...

TheBoogieman 06-17-2013 12:03 PM

I prefer a 4" lift with stock tires.

Because people continue to buy them.

Thanks for the replies. The worst part about this is that i have to cut the nerf bars off so the body can come down. The previous owner welded the bars to the frame so that the tube rises about an 1 1/2" over the top of the frame. This will be a PITA to remove but I thought I would ask for some feed back.

Tell the heaviest women in the neighborhood that you're doing a sexy big girls edition calender photo shoot and to stand on your nerf bars.When they fall off under the heavy pressure,buy them all a McDonalds $1 double cheeseburger and send them on their way.:wave:
