    what lift to use for 35" tires on a TJ

    I have some 35" tires waiting to go on my 2003 Jeep TJ from a parts car but I need a lift kit. Looking at doing 4" kit with tube fenders. Just wondering what people recommend for lift kits.

    Was looking at rough country 4" or skyjacker 4" sport lift but seems like people don't have much good to say about the $600 price range kits. Any recommendation on what kit I should use and why? Not afraid to spend a few more bucks if it saves me in the long run but don't want to throw it away either.

    Long arms. 4" or 6". If your lifting your jeep you might as well go with a Longarm kit. Better ride quality and better geometry then any short arm kit
    I don't always tread, but when I do, I, tread lightly

    How do you plan on using your jeep ? Do you plan on wheeling every weekend or just a couple times a year? Are you comfortable doing permanent mods to your jeep or would you rather stick to bolt on mods that could be easily removed and be returned to stock. Just a few questions to ask yourself so you get what you want the first time without spending big money on things you don't really need. If I were to build up a tj for me I would want to keep the lift under 4 inches, some sort of long arms , three link front, four link rear and decent shocks. With that combo and 35's you would end up with a pretty capable rig that would be fairly stable and still have decent road manners

    No worries I had already planned on doing an axle swap to D44 in the rear with 4.56 or 4.88 gears. Just haven't decided what to do for lift options.

    I'm running 35s on a rubicon express 3.5" lift and high line kit. No rubbing and keep a lower centre of gravity.

    Ya I can totally vouch for the no rubbing with 35's... I've seen this bad boy in action on local paved roads and Tim Hortons parking lots. Never seen her rub!
