What kinda lift would u guys recommend for a yj to clear 36's??? And i dont mean squeezed into the wheel wells, has to have some room to flex?

What's up with 6' lifts costing almost double what 4' lifts cost???

There are a couple of ways to fit 36s on a yj. Being that I own a 89' on 36 supper-swamper tsl-sx. Cool tire, but measure the same size as a 35" bfg when at 10lb and 30 lb respectively. Anyhow getting back to the lift. Yeah you can spend a whole bunch of cash on a 6" kit and bolt it on (not actually completely bolt-on btw) or you can :

1) 4" suspension lift and 3" body w/ small trim of rear inner fender. From what I've read, seen and being this is what I did .... is what I recommend

2) Spring over (good welder needed) and either a 4" body or suspension
lift

3) Shackle reversal and drop on front springs always a good trick to gain a few inches

4) Get custom springs bent at a local shop

Good Luck and PM me if you want to chat Jeep [5]

spoa will clear 35's bigger arced springs and it should clear 36's BUT u will have to add steering box braces or u will crack the frame in that area (there common for it) i have a 3" drop pitman arm if ur in need of 1

Go 2.5" rubicon lift and spring over, then throw on tj flares and you will have lots of room to flex
update us when you figure out what your doing

spring over is welding on new perches ontop of the axles so u run the axles under the springs instead of ontop gives u 5" or so u need longer brake lines and shocks as well prob a drop pitman arm too cheaper for sure for that size of lift that and a 2" body lift might get u the 36's ur looking for

dana 44's from a wagoneer, i believe they come spring over. Tj fender flares, throw in a 360 from the wagoneer too. waggy springs. clears 36's fine.

i had a 91yj with 4"LEAFS,1.5"SHAKELS,3"BODY LIFT with 35" tires and in the back at full flex the tire still hit,i would also suggest throwing on some tj flares they add around one inch of clearence

never more than 3 inch bodi lift......max 1 inch longer shackles....prefer no extended shackles...they remove caster and cause the think to drive and handle terribly......i think i agree with the 2 and a half onch flexy springs with the spring over...thats a good start
Good luck
