I have a 04 WJ that I want to lift, it's gonna be my daily driver for a while. Anyone have any opinions regarding the 4" Teraflex vs. the 6? I'm wondering if 6 is too big, although i've heard 33s rub pretty bad with just the 4.I have to keep in mind though I will use it to commute to work.
6 will probably be a bit much for a DD. Arlo should be able to give you some more insight, if not sell you his BB when he goes bigger (wink, wink). I've read that 33s would be okay with some minor trimming. I really wouldn't want to go 33 on a DD though. 32 would be my limit.

"Duh! Big RED Jeep!!!"
You can do a search and get tons of info.But the skinny on the subject.The Tera kit sucks.4"and you will have to trim to fit 33's without a doubt. 4" with 33's will hinder your wheeling as well.Best combo is 32's with a 4-4.5 of lift.6" is a big step and alot more money then a 4" lift.If you do go to 6" get Clayton's Long Arms that is the way to go.
And get your 4" lift from www.kevinsoffroad.com under WJ lifts. Has a good comprehensive kit put together that uses some of Teraflex's kit and some other stuff in it.
Expect to spend around $2000 + tires/wheels for a 4" lift + 32's.
I wouldn't go 6" w/o long arms as Ramon said...Hunter has a 4" lift + 2"BB to compensate for...He is running like that just fine.
There is one thread on here from JU about a guy running 6 inch short arm lift for a WJ that he make work.
However, the normal 4 inch lift from Kevins is the way to go. Arlo hit that perfectly.
