Check your bump stops and make sure you're not crushing your fenders. Long term reliability will be the real question. A few here run 37's on stock axles, not stock internals, and have faired alright.I know this question has probably been asked a million times but can I run 37s with a 4 inch lift? I am currently running tube fenders in the rear and high lines in the front.
What size lift then?In all seriousness though, this is a question of "can you" versus "should you".
Can you run 37s with a 4 inch lift? Absolutely.
Should you run 37s with a 4 inch lift? Absolutely not.
What size lift? How about 5" of lift, highlines, coilovers, Dana 60s, and then someWhat size lift then?
Let's hold off and assuming everything will explode until we know the trails, if any, he goes on.
I could make it work on 4" spring, 1.25" body, highlines and more body trimming. I still wouldn't want to run 37s on stock width axles and wheelbase. Nevermind the problem with keeping the ball joints from falling out. But I'm also looking for more than just making a certain tire size roll down the street.What size lift then?
I'm with you. Would I do personally do it, no. All I'm saying is we don't know what his goals are.What size lift? How about 5" of lift, highlines, coilovers, Dana 60s, and then some
But even if he only takes it on-road, with 37s and a 4" lift, what is the up-travel at that point? You'll have to have so much bump stop just to keep the tires from hitting the fenders that even on-road driving will suffer.
So I can't tell him to get a full Savvy / Currie setup just yet?I'm with you. Would I do personally do it, no. All I'm saying is we don't know what his goals are.
As far as travel goes I guess that depends how he feels about cutting into the tub.
Totally off topic, but the roll cage bracing in that looks really clean. Nice Jeep!
On a 4 inch lift with no wheelbase stretch, you'll have better stability on hill climbs and more uptravel with 35's, which makes it better for rock crawling.
