Decided to bite the bullet

Well, after the trip on the Rubicon, I have decided that I need to go spring over. I didn't really want 12 inches of overall lift, but I kept hitting those damn springs way too much.

The finally tally will be CSC YJ kit giving about 4-5 inches, spring over at 4.5 inches and 31x10.5's (2.5 inches over the 205x70's) for a total of just under 12 inches.

Re: Decided to bite the bullet

I ended up getting about 4-5 inches from the CSC/YJ conversion and then I will end up with another 4.5 inches from the SPOA. Then going from the stock 205x70's(approx 26) to 31's is one half of 5 inches (2.5 inches). This gives a total difference of 11-12 inches.

This will put the bottom of the frame at 20.5 inches off the ground.

Re: Decided to bite the bullet

With the CSC Wrangler kit and a standard 4.5" SPOA, the bottom of my frame sits 24.25 inches off the ground with 33x14.50 Swamper SSRs. I thought the stock frame sat around 12 inches off the ground? That would put me at 12 inches over stock.

Re: Decided to bite the bullet

Air down a bit when you come thru Utah :^) With the new lift laws we got passed this year, the frame can be 24" off the ground.

Seriously though, that just sounds big to me. My green one runs 35's with no upward rubbing and I'm not quite to 24".
