Still waiting on a 4.5” lift kit or bigger to come out. I can’t be the only one right?
My wheels and tires are sitting pathetically in the garage until then.

Or am I just missing it?

You should go coil overs in front and triangulated 3 link rear with 8” of lift. Then I can rock 40’s on the stock Dana 30’s .

I went with a 3.5” for now and 35s. Once there are more options of 6”+ I’ll upgrade

What size wheels/tires do you have sitting in the garage that will require 4.5"+ lift?

The skyjacker 3.5-4" kit I installed netted me a little over 4" of lift, and I feel it's too tall for the 37's I currently run(Won't go to 40's on the factory axle.)

That’ll really help a lot of people, newbies such as myself. Hope you sleep better at night with all that sarcasm out of ya.

I have 37’s as well but I didn’t want the tires to look stuffed under. The rubi’s fenders are a little taller so not quite sure mine would look quite like yours but I will say that’s a nice lookin rig!

What is the overall height of the Jeep? I was debating between the 2.5” or 3.5”. After seeing your setup I’ve decided to go with the 4”. Did you have to do anything with the driveshaft?

Thanks! It comes with brake line extensions that work fine. I wouldn't put cam bolts on my Jeep. I'm currently driving with no form of caster correction until my control arms arrive.
Here is a picture I took today with my wife's JLU today.

Front Driveshaft is fine for daily driving, but I don't think it will hold up under full articulation off-road. I have another driveshaft coming for it, but they are still a week or two out on production.

I don't have my soft top up but measuring to a little over the sound bar it looks to be 77" tall

Your Jeep looks awesome. I think around 3.5" with 37's is perfect. I am looking at the Rock Krawler and Metal Cloak kits.
Are you changing upper and lower control arms?

What size tire are you planning on running with a 4" lift?

I agree, 3.5" would be perfect. I think once I have added all the extra weight of skids, sliders, recovery gear/air compressor etc it will settle down to where I want it to be, but by then I will probably have a different suspension setup as well(I have problems lol)
I'm actually going to a Long Arm kit, so changing all 8 arms.
You can't go wrong with either Rock Krawler or Metal Cloak, both are great companies!

I fit 35s on the Rubi without a lift no problem. (https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/jlu-rubicon-on-35s-no-lift.7290/#post-159631)

Depending on how much flex you use may be able to run 37s without a lift for awhile haven't seen any commentary in regards to anyone whose done it yet. You def only need a 2inch lift to run 37s unless its' personally preference. I would hate having to see those tires sitting in the garage daily!
