I have a 4" ProComp Lift and a 1" Daystar Body lift.
I am running BFG 35x12.5x15.

I had to trim my flares and fenders. (They still rubed)
I replaced my front fenders with tube fenders to fix the front.
The back just rubs (after some triming) on my flares and they slowly self trim as they rub.

Kygreenyj has the right plan with the TJ flares and the triming.
You will probably have to change your rim offset to keep them off your frame in turns.

I have a 93 yj with 35"x12.50x15 Mud AT. I have a 3" body lift only. I had to shave the fender flares and adjust my side nuff bars. They only rub on the inner body seem when I turn really sharp. I will be putting a suspension lift on it in the future when i get some extra but for now it's fine.

a 2" body would give u just enough room i would recommend a 3 inch, looks much better and only cost 20$ more

Have you taken it offroad at all? Looks like you're going to tear the hell out of it when you flex.

But it's going to cause you more grief in the long run. Go for the smaller body lift and an actual suspension lift. Wink

Welp, I own a TJ and never have owned a YJ.

Here is my thoughts on bigger tires. If you go bigger expect to pay more. With that said, you have to go bigger to accomidate the size of your tires. Thats why my TJ is sitting on 33s with a 3.5-inch lift. Of course im running with a Tummytuck and some other under carriage armor to compensate for the lower stance.

Ive seen some Jeeps running Rubicon Express 4.5-inch lifts and a 1-inch body lifts clearing 35's. You can pickup the Extreme setup for 900 retail and Im sure any vendor will cut you a break on that and the basic 4.5 will cost you aproxmately 500+.

Please dont take this wrong lrrnhobb77
I wouldn't be caught dead on the street with that setup. Simply because everybody who sees it like everybody here knows your looking at breaking something. I know the feeling. Lets throw on some bigger tires and play. The problem is your trying to take a short cut. You cant throw on bigger wheels without the lift. Its just the way it is. Just a little more time and patience my friend.

Honestly you should of bought the tires and taken them home and as soon as you lifted the Jeep you should mount the tires. Heres whats going to happen. Call me psycic or however you spell that word. Your going to lift it aproximately 4-inches at a cost of 500-900. Now with that lift your going to need a SYE and a new CV rear driveline at 500+. So your telling yourself your going to save up 1000-1400 to do it all. Im not sure about you, but most people after droping 1000 on tires cant shell that out right away.

In the mean time your going to be driving very carefully until you can afford the 1000-1400 additional funds to correct what wasn't broken before.

I have a 1995 yj and i installed a 4" Rubicon Express lift. The jeep doesnt have a body lift. I am running 35 inch tires. I didnt have to shave anything and it flexes fine...no rubbing at all. Just took it to the Jeepers Jamboree on the world famous Rubicon Trail. The Jeep Kicked ***
Did not break a thing. Friends with more well equiped jeeps. with lockers and such all broke something. Except for me.

Go with the 3" body lift!!! Then send us some pics! I run 3" suspension and 3" body on my CJ7 and I love it! I plan on doing a SOA conversion in the future.

There's no way you could even use that Jeep to it's potential. You need to throw a spring lift on it asap! Cool

body lifts are pointless unless in this case. i would say never go above two inches especially when your sitting on four inches of lift. anything over two inches and youll have ALOT more body roll and youl have to modify you shift linkage usually. i'd say go with a two inch body lift at the most then go with a shackle lift you can get a little mroe than an inch out of that . so essentially youll be adding 3.5 in of with with that combo and not sacrificing a lot of body roll. plus trucks look a whole lot better with out a huge ass gap between the body and frame. in any case all you need it about two more inches to clear 35's with out rubbing at all. if you wheel hard you might want to trim fenders a bit.

if you put more than 2 more inches on you will have to change the d shaft and buy a slip yoke elim., very expensive. plus youll have to regear for 35s. if you put a jks 1.25 body lift on all you have to do is reagear.

yes you will have to change up the linkage, and body lift does give you more body roll but not as much if you were to get the same amount of lift with your suspension. body lift leaves all your heavy parts down low still unlike the suspension lift that raises everything up (motor, trany, transfer, etc) and with suspension you will have to get new driveline crap.

my advise would be to get a 1 inch body and trim the crap out of your fenders.... keep your center of gravity as low as you can!!!!

oh and just putting this out there... i dont like the body lift look either but hey it works
