    3'' vs 4'' Enforcer

    I ultimately want 37s. Following advice from some awesome people, I will run 35s for a while. Giving me time to get my front end figured out. With that being said.. the price is the same for the 3'' and 4'' with drag link/ front lower control arms. If I buy the driveshaft for the front, which I plan to do anyways, is there any real detrimental difference between the two while running 35s. I want the additional space for when I make the swap. Flat or regular fenders are ok by me. So look wise I'm happy. Just not sure if there is a HUGE difference between the additional inch or not. As in additional parts and what have you.

    thanks

    B

    3" should be fine for 37's, especially with flat or cut fenders. You'll have quite a bit of space between the fenders and tires while you're running 35's. Also, that 1 additional inch does affect your center of gravity. Generally you should just run the spring height necessary to run the tire size you want without clearance issues. Anything more is kinda wasted.

    I'm on the 3". Ran it both with 35's and now 37's with cut fenders. No rubbing at full flex.

    I run 37s on a Dana 30. If you're getting a new driveshaft go ahead and get either Tom Woods or Adams shaft. You could run either 3" or 4". I run 3.5" on 37 with no fenders. I did have fenders for a while. Resized_20180603_173241_5111.jpgIMG_20180210_103657.jpg

    I run 37s with the 4” plush rides up front and AEV 4.5s in the back on the EVO LA kit. I still run the stock fenders with minimal rubbing at full flex.

    Your selection will depend on the fender style you want to run and how much bump stop you install. 37s can be run either way. Less lift, skinnier fenders.

    OP, It’s unclear from your post whether you intend to do a drag link flip. I think you’ll want that with a 4” lift for sure. Otherwise you’ll experience a bunch of bump steer. It’s marginal with a 3” lift.

    Clearance and rubbing are going to be a factor of how much bump stop you have, not how much lift.

    If you think you’re going to get to 37s, I’d recommend the 4” lift, especially if you’re going to run stock fenders.

    I started with 3" for 35's until I got 37's and wished I went with 4" to begin with. I rubbed the stock fenders with 37's on 3". Now I'm sitting on 4" Enforcer w/ all EVO arms but haven't had the chance to stretch it out yet.

    So there really isn't a big difference in parts needed for the 3-4'' jump. I just wanted to make sure it wasn't like going from 35s-37s... Where there is a laundry list of upgrades you should do to run them 100%safely. As I said in my first post, I will be getting the stage one kit with drag link flip. So it will have the 3 OR 4'' lift, LCA, Drag link flip kit, and I want to buy a new front and/or back drive shaft as well. If there aren't any crazy hidden expenses I will go with the 4''.

    I have done a lot of reading, and I haven't come across anything else. Just wanted to verify before I start buying stuff here in the next month or so.
