Is a 4" lift enough. I decided against using the 53's I bought because I was told that I needed an 8" lift. Since I haven't been able to sell the tires I might reconsider if a 4" works??
I agree!I think the 4" lift looks 100 times better than the 8" lift.
Where does it rub with the 4" lift? Could you get some pictures?
Or how about no lift? What rubs? I'd have no problem taking a saw to the body, but if there are other things that hit that arn't that easy, that's a different story.
Also have no problem adding a few inches of bumpstop. My jeep has 14" of travel with only 3" of uptravel. Low is good. The less lift with the biggest tires wins!!!
What is a 2 1/2 inch spring lift? I was planning on an air bag rear suspension so lifting the rear is no harder than stock height. If I could get away with 2 1/2 inch lift and the front wasn't a big deal to fabricate, I just might have to use my 53's.I agree!
Lower is better. What degree could you traverse with 53's and an 8 inch lift? I'll bet it's not much. I have 53's with ONLY a 2 1/2 inch spring lift and nothing rubs. The front tires do come within an inch of the back side of the fender wells when they are turned all the way and the suspension is totally bottomed out. But a miss is as good as a mile. I did re-do the exhaust and ran it up under the truck and out the back, that is the biggest interference problem. I also trimmed the fenders...it is a "Bobber"
