guys with the 4" Rancho Lift on the LML

I think I have decided to go with the 4" Rancho Lift. It seems taller than some of the other 4" lifts out there. I am looking to run 35" with no fender mods. The couple I have seen pictures of look really good and seems like a good solid kit. Just looking for some opinions. Going to pull the trigger probably Friday. I want to run 18" rims and 9" wide what offset should I go with?

35's with NO fender mods is gonna require you to run a 6" lift. A few guys around here are running the BDS 6.5" lift with 35's and cranking it down to have flat CV angles with no fendor mods.

There are a couple on here that have done the Rancho 4" lift and they are running 35" with no fender mods. I believe 8100 power is one of them. When I say fender mods I am talking about metal work. I dont care about cutting some plastic. hopefully somewith the lift will speak up.

Yep. Took off the 2nd lower valance piece on the front bumper and that's it. Nothing else removed, or cut.

I think it will depend on the offset of your wheels. Mine is 0 offset with 4.5" backspacing.

Good choice ! Which shocks did you go with? I'd recommend getting a set of sulastics on the way as well! Give Holton a shout at adp. They will increase the rear lift by 3/4", and smooth out the ride.

Im running the factory 20" wheels, with a set of 1/4" spacers on the front, and 33-12.50 toyos. I have no rubbing issues, and I feel that I could clear 35's easily. Like said before, depends on the offset of the aftermarket wheels!

Good luck, you're gonna love it !!
