I have a 3" Full Traction lift, a 1" body lift, and 33s. In my opinion, there is plenty of room for 35s. I also have the Xenon flat flares though, so I have a bit more "visual" clearance than you would have with your flares.

After the lift I had some vibes that were not fixed by the transfercase drop. I tried a motor mount lift, but nothing changed, so I ended up getting the sye. I still have stock control arms except for the rear upper ones, and my tires are still pretty well centered in the wheelwells.

From what I have read on the forum, a zj tierod is a good upgrade. Before the Currie kit came out, a zj tierod was the bees knees.

Bad advice, checking your profile says your Yj is on 35s, but not a TJ, your TJ's been on 33s, I have ran my TJ with 4.56 gears, 38 12.5 15 TSL SX's, 6.5 custom suspension and STOCK STOCK STOCK brakes and as the other poster said, stopped better than some of the stock vehicles. So i love how people say its bad advice. Rather spend money on a SYE if need be then upgrade brakes that may not need it. Does it hurt for each person to try and see what they think!

I run 35" tires on stock brakes...I leave plenty of distance between me and the car in front of me because I KNOW my braking power is diminished. I can stop pretty good if I shock the brakes, but if I am running the brakes and then NEED to stop I am kinda screwed.


ALSO...With an automatic and stock brakes, good luck offroad. Ask the guys I ran with this past weekend, I can push through my brakes on a steep descent.

I would love the Vanco BBK...I hate being a run away train on a downhill. (sure I can flick it into neutral and come to a stop, but I'd rather not have to 100% rely on my brakes.)

the other poster's jeep probably stops better because he needs brakes on the gc. you want to try and get in a debate thats fine, i didnt call you out personally, but you give some horrible advice. who cares what i have on 35's its the same thing (you know that though because you had a tj and now own a yj). things need to be upgraded to run it properly. i know how to build both a tj and a yj. running 35's needs pretty much the same junk. he probably wont need a sye with the 3 inch lift, he may but as you know EVERY JEEP IS DIFFERENT. but again you already know that since you had a tj on 38's, right? just cause you ran a set up half #%^ doesnt mean you should reccommend someone else should.

this is the best yet, apex here could be the best driver in the world but as you know, is it really his driving on stock brakes he needs to worry about or all the other people on the road that cant drive around him? i know i have been in some crappy situations caused by other people not paying attention.

I run 35's with 3" suspension and 1.25" body lift. I daily drive it about 90 miles a day and it sucks, but it isn't as bad as I thought. I am also on stock brakes, and while I plan to upgrade them soon, they are also better then I thought.
I need to cut the rear fender slightly and thinking about a 1" spacer on top of my current lift. It's higher then I would like, but I don't have the time/tools to go tube fenders, nor do I really want to cut my body that much. I will just have to sacrifice uptravel for now.

I think you should reconsider. I hate bursting a bubble, but you're going to NEED to spend a lot of money to keep this DD on the road.

With the same amount of lift, I will. It's only the inner fender though, you can't see it with the flares on.

didn't see it mentioned, a small piece of good news for you .. since you have a LJ your chance of vibes is diminished, you might be able to put off the sye and/or use less "T" case drop.
