Thank You

It wouldn't be nearly as clean without being on the forum!

It's too bad this isn't two different threads, one for J-trucks and one for Waggys, it seems like they have different lift capacities due to the rear fender wells.

No biggie, I still got a few good ideas for stuffing 34's or 35's under mine!!

I hope this photo shows. 4" skyjacker all around, 31x10.5x15 BFG's on a 15x8 wheel. It is actually ~5.5" higher than before the lift.

This is my chief with 31x10,5 (in my historic car licence)

on the second pic are 33x12,5

rims are 6.5 like in the licence or maybe 7". have to check it.

My shocks are not good, especcialy the rear shocks with the air assistance.
So i have to do something with the suspension in the future.
in germany this is a vintage car, and i will not use it for rough offroad.
But 33s are looking cool.
Diff is 46/13 3,54
What do you mean? stay at the 31s and be save with the police.
and do some new shocks.
or change to the 33s?
What is to do for the 33s? Rims wider than 7"?
spring. I dont want to trim the fenders.

Those look to be 8" rims, the 33 will fit on the 8"rims just fine. I would do a lift kit on it(3 inch rough country will be fine) and some new shocks with it and you should be good.

You are right:

In comparison with old 10" rims in the cellar it should be even 8,5"
(240mm outer width - 26m for the shoulder, the 10" are 280mm outer widht)
I found a RC 3" Kit only with the front springs (and spacer for rear) and one with front and rears springs, both with shocks.


My Chief has a heighT 17,7" from (middle) hub to fender in front and 20,5" in the rear.
ist this stock height?
I know a jeep suspension expert in the states, an he is not on the rough country side...

But his business are not the old cars, rather the wrangleers or my grand cherokee wj..
He is not on the rough country side...
which else lift kit is suitable for my chief to go on 33x12.5?
I dont go offroad with it and need a lot of offset
(I dont wont it to high because i want to avoid certification in the license papers..)
