4" suspension lift and 33" tires and they rubbed really bad! Added the 2" body lift and all is good.

I do like the ones on there. They stick out a little. The body lift did resolve it though. But, to answer your question. I did. :grin:

100% correct. Agreed, with a 4" suspension lift there should not be a need for a body lift with 33s ? My rig has a 4" suspension lift and when it had 33s there was never an issue. When I went to 35s then that changed things. It would just rub the rear inside piece of plastic where there is a notch that sticks out on a TJ. I could have cut that out but when flexing on a trail it would still hit some place due to not enough clearance. Therefore in my case a body lift was needed. 35s "CAN" be put on a stock TJ to keep a lower center of gravity but with expensive modifications. I still have the JP magazine article on that around here someplace.

I think thought the TJ site taller or at least the fenders do than a YJ. I have compared mine to Scott's (DezertDog) and his TJ is different than my YJ on the stock fender cut. This may explain why you didn't need to.

I put the rear compressor on. For the tires. I also put the hi-lift jack on the front bumper.

It looks like the first pic is the latest with the 6" lift.
