2.5 or 4" Lift Question

Hello everyone, looking for some input. Currently working on a 79 Bronco build and plan to evaluate the suspension soon. This will be a daily driver so I am not looking to compromise ride quality but I would like a nicer stance.


The question I have is 4" lift with 33x12.5 or 2.5" with 33x12.5? I would like to go 4" but I don't want to have too large a gap in the wheel wells. I am wondering if anyone has photos of their ride with either set up.


Thanks for the opinions!

I believe 33's will fit stock. I would look into deaver coils/springs for a soft plush ride. run some adjustable rancho's or some Bilstien shocks.

Thanks for the input, I like the idea of a lift but I don't want it to look out of balance. I guess I need to keep doing some research.

typically guys run a 4" lift with 33's and 6" lift with 35's. these are folks that occasionally wheel and need the fender room.

in your case going with no lift or minimal 2.5" lift and 33's would look sharp.

The more I think about it, I agree with you. The 2.5" with that size tire would have a nice stance. Thanks again.
