cant believe lifts are out already..

just went on northride 4x4 and saw that they have a jk section up already with a 3" and 2" lift already for it. the 3" from full traction says you could run 35's with the kit. also they have trackbars, and bumpers out for it already. may sway me to buy one..

Probably less lift for bigger tires because the JK's already come with bigger stock tires/rims than any Wrangler beofre it, ie., already has set up for bigger tires to begin with. That's kinda cool if you think about it. You can put a slightly smaller lift on it but run bigger tires than older Wrangler models. Money saver? Sounds like it .

What they don't mention is if you need additional hardware. With the old Wranglers if you put a lift on, longer brake lines, CVs, SYE, trackbars, regearing, etc., were recommended or needed depending on the height of the lift. I would think going from say the stock tires of an X (30s), to 35s, would acquire additional hardware. Who's going to have the first death wobble thread, lol.

If it fits 32" stock, 35" should be about 2" of lift, and even some IFS on Toyota handles 2.5" without CV problems.
I would be REALLY surprised if 2.5" requires driveline modifications - in particular on the LWB Unlimited.

... and remember, the JK already has CV drive shafts and a fixed yoke transfercase along with significantly longer control arms which will allow for more lift with less change in axle position.
