I over inflated the tires on the beater to give me another 3/64" of height. Can I add that one to the lifted nation along with my other two? >:D

You'll be doing a lot of trimming to the front. Cladding doesn't like 35" on turns. I have a 6.5" BDS lift and have Nitto trail grapplers 295/70/18 and have no rubbing. However I had to dremmel off the inside lip of my molded mud flaps so they wouldn't get ripped off when turning. That's how tight it gets. I wanted 35's but wasn't keen on massive trimming.

Haha
Good one but I think we have to put a bar somewhere.
Maybe 2"inches or more? I'm just saying cause when I cranked my torsion keys to the max, I wouldn't call that a lift but after the spaces, shock extenders and the new keys, my girl now has to use the grab handles in the door to get just to climb in.

I think that should count as a lift.  :laugh:

Now, I'm not saying that there are "rules" in Lifted Nation, but I think that if you can't fit a tall-boy stacked WITH a regular 12 ouncer between your tire and wheel well, you probably need to start a thread called "Almost-lifted Nation"..... Just sayin'. It'd be cool, and us lifted guys would check in from time to time and say "hi" from up here.  ;)

Hey Hanz Groober it makes sense...according to the die-hard extreme off-roaders I know lifted meant "suspension" lift. BL or leveling kits to them were more for visual purposes whereas suspension lifts (along with an occasional BL or leveling kit) were made for maximum clearance when off-roading.

However if you think about it, whenever the body of a vehicle or anything for that matter is modified in height I guess it would be considered "lifted" ;)

I didn't find any beer cans around me, but I were able to fit a spray paint can and jar of spackle between my 35" tire and wheel well  :D
