Just put 3 or 4 more inches of body lift on it.
It is cheaper, looks better and you keep the factory ride and handling.

Must not flame.....must not flame....

Chances are, you won't find a 3" body lift here.

What are you trying to achieve? (other than seeing a pic of something that should not exist)
Do you want to run 37" tires? Or would you just stay with your 33's?

My thoughts exactly. If you only have 33's that will look pretty dorky.
More lift is not always better.

Yeah, Im uprgading to bigger tires. Im already got bigger axles on it so all i need is some suspension, the gears and the tires. I might go ahead and cut the body lift to 2 inches depending on how much space the 4 inch gives me to stuff these 37s under. I want to do this without any fender trimming. If you guys have any pictures that will be greatly appreciated.
thanks

You probably won't find anyone on Pirate who is adverse to fender trimming.

keep it low, trim the fenders and call it a day. Besides, with bigger tires you'll eventually round out your fenders anyway to your new tire size if you bottom out your suspension enough times.

Can you post pictures of how it sits right now to give us a better idea of what you are working with?

Actually it is all about biodegradable body lifts now. This is a great example on a XJ nonetheless:

Or more beauty, but the body lifts are not green, but the jeep is:

Must work great with 50"tires and no trimming...






Do not be hattin, chicks dig body lifts

I dig the adjustable hold down. Need more lift? Just loosen the strap, add more "lift" as required and re-tighten. No muss, no fuss!

Trying to help the kid out......

Here is my TJ with a 6" skyjacker and 2" body lift and 35's. The lift has settled probably more to 4.5" Yes.....it is way too tall to "wheel", but I am building a YJ for that. I would like it not as tall but its more my wifes Jeep and she likes it so I like it.....

My suggestion still is to not go that high, keep it low. But then again, its not my Jeep.
