I know this gets asked by everyone but this time it's different. I swear!
I'm gonna do flat fenders. Probably the genright narrow aluminum ones. I know both the 2.5 and 3.5 will work and I'd originally planned on the 3.5" lift. But I'm doing aluminum bumpers and fenders, soft top and probably never gonna do real rock sliders or any armor/skids. This is a mall crawler / DD / light tow vehicle only. It'll never see a trail I have to disconnect for.
So the question is, without all that weight, would the 3.5" lift sit too tall? Should I get the 2.5" to compensate? I'm looking at the metalcloak overland lifts with the geometry correcting brackets.

as the expert said and I concur ; 2.5 is more than adequate for the need you define.:jeep2:

Just a quick aside. Flat fenders make a LOT of room under the Jeep. So much so that 37's can tend to look small, especially on a 4-door.

For a mall crawler you might as well just put on a budget boost and save yourself a bunch or money.
BB and flat fenders you should be GTG

If you don't need 3.5 don't do it. More lift=more headaches.



Marcus been in the whiskey again. He's repeating himself. :thefinger:
