    Default Bad lift idea?

    I have a 3 inch full traction lift over 33's right now (it sits about 3.5 inches and clears the tires fine) but i'm worried about eating a fender at full flex. For those that don't know, my Jeep is a "special edition" so flat-fendering or replacing beat up fenders isn't much of an option since I like the factory OD green look.

    I have a 2" BB sitting in my garage. I know 3.5 inches of lift + a 2" bb isn't the best idea out there, but I would think it would keep my fenders about 2" safer? input?

    Let the trash talking begin.

    I would do a 1.25 Body lift.... Maybe install a 1" spacer to the front bump stops...

    In your situation I wold'n add the BB to your current lift.... I wold't change the manufacturer set-up by adding the BB... Thats my opinion, but what do I know?

    Agreed 1.25 BL with 1 MM and could opt for TT now or later. Sell the 2" BB and put it towards the BL & MM.

    I can help you throw on a body lift if you want. Don't throw the bb on there. It won't end very well.

    yeah i'm not buying anything new, i'll just pass on the BB to someone that needs it. my suspension lift on it now is good until I feel like dropping the money for a SYE and all the rest of the crap I need. I'll be buying a new spare tire and a winch long before I drop cash for more lift.
