35\'s and Tera Flex 4\" anyone?

I have been planning on upgrading from the Tera Flex 3 inch springs to the 4 inch ones. Mepco has a decent trade in policy. I am looking for the heavier spring rate and more clearance for larger tires and to clear obsticles. Hence the question: Will 35" tires rub? Tera Flex claims you can run them. I figure a 1 inch body lift may also be in order. I know that with the Rubicon 4.5 kit you may run only 33's. But, then I may be getting to top heavy at this point (may not be able to fit in the garage either). I have 31's at the moment and they rub a little. Does anyone have experience with this set up or know of anyone who is running this set up. Thanks for the advice. Rick

PS: How may posts do I need to move up from STRANGER?

Re: 35\'s and Tera Flex 4\" anyone?

i can only offer this.. my tj has the RE kit and we flexed it up today....the 35's are a bit tight.. it could use a 1" body lift just like the factory sez..and these are brand new springs before they have settled at all...so i would guerss they are a little closer to 5" of lift right now. unless you dont go off road, i wouldn't think the 4" kit would fit 35's

Re: 35\'s and Tera Flex 4\" anyone?

My friend has a brand new RE 4.5 lift with a 1" body lift and 35" MTR's. We got him on the rocks this weekend and the tires were rubbing.

I would do the same but add 1" or 1.5" coil spacers.

Also his extended brake lines were too short. Make sure you do something there.

Here is a pic in which the tires are nicely tucked up in the flares but they were rubbing at other times...

It's doable but a 1" body lift is recomended, I'd probably go 4-4.5" spring, 3/4-1" spacer, 1" body and it would fit really well. the 4" + 1" would be ok but expect some rubbing especially when you are flexing.
