a friend is building his 1992 xj and is wondering how much suspension lift he will need to run 35" BFG's he has already swapped in a 8.8 in the rear ,would 6.5" be enough with a little fender trimming

gonna need more than a little fender trimming

can't find any pics right now but cdn-xj has the Rubicon 7.5 in long arm kit plus 3 in spacers to get 36s under his.

I ran 35s on a MJ with 6.5" and trimming. It rubbed a bit because I was too cheap to buy some hockey pucks.


4.5-5" and trimming is do-able.


There's a guy on NAXJA that went to town and runs 36s on 2.5" or something.

hey nutbar how much lift do you think he would need without any trimming

With the 35 BFGs they are a smaller sized tire(they never measure a full 35 in) you could probably get away with 8 in and minor trimming . . . BUT . . . to get into that much lift you will want to go long arm in the frt the stock length control arms are just to short to work with that much lift (you would need a stupidly long set of drop brackets) and definately want some kind of a SYE kit and a CV driveshaft in the rear, and the last problem you run into is steering at that much lift you pretty much need some kind of high steer set up or they just start eating up tie rod ends.

BFG tires are always about half an inch smaller than advertised, the Krawlers however, are measured accurately.

some one I know runs 36s on his xj claims no trimming on his with a 10 inch lift. what really pisses me off is that its just lifted with tires no lockers and never shuts up about what he scored the last time he ramped it.oh btw someone tell me that a 10inch lift kit on a is bullshit please

Just whenever he talks about his RTI score reply "Oh, sorry, I don't know what that means - I drive up trails, not ramps"

RTI scores are for posers and mean absolutely nothing in "real world wheeling" and this comes from a guy in a jeep that has pulled almost 1600 on the 20* and over 1000 on the 30*

I have seen up to 8 in kits for the XJs but have not seen a cataloged 10 in lift for em, although with all the lesser known lift companies out there I am sure somebody has something

cdn-xj has about 10-12 inches(probably closer to 12) in his 92 and 36 TSL SXs on it with minimal trimming
