3.5" or 4.5" Lift for 33's

2022 Views 11 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  XTJake
I will be getting a Rubicon Express lift kit in order to run 33" tires. Will be going with Pro Comp 7031 wheels (15 x8) and Duratrac tires. However, the Rubicon Express 3.5" and 4.5" are the same price for the Superflex kit. It would be nice to have the option of running 35's later on (maybe with a 1" body lift), so wondering if it makes sense to get the 4.5" lift immediately? Any drawback to going with the higher lift, either in performance or extra modifications needed?

I've got the RE 3.5", and it fits my 33s perfectly. I added SYE and CV driveshaft because I got some vibes after the lift, but I've had no rubbing or binding issues anywhere. I'm not sure why rda616 is recommending staying away from RE. I've had their kits and various components on two Jeeps now, and I've never had any issues with them at all.
