2010 Rubicon Lift Advice - Running 37's with 3" lift

Ok everyone, I got a 2010 Rubicon 4DR and am looking to lift it to fit 37s on my 17x9 (ProComp) wheels. Currently I have 33's on there now without a lift. I've heard horror storys of certain lift kits not being able to completely clear the front sway bar, or something to that nature. I'm not a rock crawler or someone that is looking for FULL flex. Just something a bit higher, meaner and if I happen to run into 4 feet of snow again, I can handle it like a stripper on a pole. I took a look at a Rubicon Express 3" lift for about $400.

Please let me know what your advice would be for I want to do this the RIGHT way and not cut corners. Thanks for the help!

Read my thread in the Write-Up section about how to run 37s on a 2.5"-3" lift.

You may or may not go the same route, but it should help.

The lift you mention is too incomplete to run 37s unless you add all the missing components.

Here is my 09 with Teraflex 3" lift w/upper and lower control arms,Track bar etc...
It started out with Teraflex 4" springs, but after listening to my dear wife complain about what a PITA it was climbing into it every time we took off in it, I swapped them for the 3" springs. I still have plenty of room for my 37x13.5 Nitto's. I kept the bumpstops that came with the 4" springs in place. I also had to add a couple of washers behind the steering stop nuts on both sides because of the 13.5" wide tires and the AEV wheels. Had to trim the stock Rubicon side rails. Nothing rubs

Here it is with 4" springs (actually lifted the jeep 5.25")
It measured 8" from the top of the tire to the bottom of the flares all the way around.


Here it is with the 3" springs (actually lifted the jeep 4.25")
It measures 7" now from the top of the tires to the bottom of the flares all the way around.


It drives better now (less driveshaft angle w/more caster)
Still flexes good. I'm a Happy camper!!

2009 Deep Water Blue Rubicon Unlimited
4"Teraflex w/upper and lower control arms
Teraflex Monster adjustable front trackbar
37" Nitto Trail Grapplers on AEV Pintler Beadlocks
Coast 1310 front and rear drive shafts
Rampage Recovery Winch bumper
Superwinch EPi9.0 winch w/ Synthetic Winch cable
LoD Gen II Stubby Rear Tire carrier bumper
AEV Procal
Yukon 5:38 Gears
