lift..spacers...32's...?

OK, Im glad to say i have finally got rid of my 98 dodge dakota 2x4 pickup and traded it for a 95 4x4 4.0 zj, but now on to the reason for the thread. Ok I will soon be purchasing the 3.5 RE super ride lift. The main thing i want to do is fit 32x11.5 tires under there and i heard 4" of lift is the minimum to acomplish this. So i was thinking the 3.5" lift plus 1/2 inch spacers would do the trick right? And i only want to go with 4" of lift because i heard after 4", you have to make a lot more mods for the lift to run smoothly. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance guys. later

Well im not sure how much better RE is better then skyjacker, but iv'e heard that RE is the best lift you can get for the ZJ, and im probly going to get the hook up with wholesale from this kid's dad, so i dont need to worry too much about price, but as for getting 1/2 inch less, you can probly just add like a inch spacer to make up the difference, but im not quite sure how much spacers take away from the quality of the lift, thats kind of what im trying to find out, as for the other stuff im putting on the jeep, im not sure, i have a brush guard coming in the mail right now that i got off ebay for cheap. Yeah im mostly going to be using my jeep for a daily driver because im still a kid (17) and i kind of need it to get around, but i will be definitly doin some mild offroadin, later

Daily Drivers

Although I dont recommend lifting ZJs for daily drivers there always are posers out there. just kidding. Anyway for daily drivers I would highly recommend the 3.5" super ride kit. You will be tight running 32's but as long as you dont flex all that much it shouldnt rub too badly. As far as skyjacker goes, they make great kits, just not for the ZJ. It is more of an actual 2.5" kit after all the sagging is done. Your money is better spent on and RE kit. Or for the least amount of money you should look at Teraflex, and their Budget Boost, you could run 2" BB with your stock shocks and 31" tires. Just a suggestion.

thank you

thank you both for replying i am starting to lean towards the R.E. kit myself and as for being a poser i have invested $20,000 in a yj just to see it break every week and not even be able to enjoy it not that i'm hating on them but i just need a break from that & i just wanna fix up my zj buy an atv for now and look into a mud-truck later on when i can afford it
