2.5 vs 3.5 and 35's vs 37's

Looking at different lifts for 2010 unlimited.

Anyone have pictures of a 2.5 lift with 35's and flat fenders (metal cloak/poison spyder)?

Or a 3.5 lift with 37's and flat fenders (poison spyder/metal cloak)?

Any input is welcome!

Current setup is all stock other than bumpers on 33's

^2.5" RK with 37" trxus mt's and Bushwacker flatties.

Same thing with 3.5" metalcloak springs.
Not exactly what you were looking for, but very similar.

With the RK 2.5 I started with about 3" to 3-1/4". It sagged out pretty hard in a year. Lost enough that pot holes and dips would bottom out even after I added sone daystar 3/4" coilspacers. (Combo of shocks, fat jk loaded with my carpentry tools and too light a spring maybe)
Went to a slightly longer fox and the metalcloak, (stiff shock, stiff spring. I like it, but it isn't a super plush ride, more truckish) net lift is about 4-1/2". It has been over a year and it might have settled a bit, but not much.
Just note that in the second pic, my passenger side is up a couple inches on the curb.
For the op: there are many people who run 35's with flat fenders and either no lift or coilspacers for mild wheeling. It all depends on your intended usage. Flat fenders are kites at highway speeds, your milage will decrease more with more lift , and your roll center may raise depending on how you modify your geometry.

I had 3.5" rk with ace flares on my old 4 door with 37s. Not exactly what your looking for but close.



Got a 2 door now getting 37s mounted today.
