Fabtech Announces 6" to 8" Long Arm Lift Kit for Jeep TJ
Jan 5, 2006
Fabtech has released a 6" to 8" long arm lift kit for Jeep TJs that allow them to fit 35" and 37" tires. This photo shows a BFG TJ using the Fabtech kit to squeeze 39" DOT Krawlers under it but for off-road use, serious fender trimming will be required.
BFGoodrich was showing a TJ with Fabtech 8" kit on 39" DOT Krawlers at the recent SEMA show but you won't be able to real world fit these without major trimming and probably a small body lift. With the passing of time comes the ability to study what others have done and improve on the design. Fabtech has definitely realized the market is moving to bigger tires on street driven trucks. Unlike previous big TJ kits (read Skyjacker) that relied on heim joints Fabtech uses urethane swivel joints that should be far more durable and more streetable. With the price of used Jeep TJ's coming down adding larger axles, 37" tires and the Fabtech 8" kit will become a economically viable option for those looking at having a dual purpose machine capable of hard core off roading on Sunday and driving to work on Monday.
