Just Got 37's

Just installed 37" MTR's on my 69 EB with a 2.5" suspension & no bodylift. No rubbing on the street, but several issues to get it off road...will be adding 1" more suspension & reworking inner fenders. here's the pics:

Thanks... actually debating after looking & measuring.. if I do the intended inner fenderwell clearancing, I may not need to lift it further... anyone else successfully run an EB on 2"-2.5" total lift?

Truthfully, I'd say body lift.. I know people dont like body lifts, but a bronco has a boxed frame..so it doesnt flex much. Its super cheap, and it makes everything 100% easier to work on. One of the best mods I've done yet...

I agree.. I dont think body lifts are great or anything but they definately arent as bad as everyone makes them out to be, on the right rig that is.

Body Lift

I just got mine in my EB last night. Still have to hook up the clutch linkage and add the joint to the steering shaft, but wow did it make a difference. It's on 35's with 3.5 susp. It just looks like this is the way it was intended to be. It would probably look even better on 37's.
