need ideas and pics of your lifted GC

i just bought a 93 zj and want to lift it. i want to get 33s on it maybe even 35s. if you guys/ and girls can post some pics of your grand cherokee and tell me what you are running on it. and whether you like/dislike the setup. that would help out a whole lot. thanks

http://nagca.com has an extensize section of "readers rides" its about 65 pages worth of them, and descriptions. check that out to start you off, and then maybe ask some more in-depth questions that'll be easier for people to answer.

And Congratulations on youre new vehicle, I just purchased mine a few months ago.

If you want to run 33's you will need at least 5.5" lift with lots of trimming. To run 35's your looking at a long arm kit , 8" lift and lots of trimming. NAGCA is probably your best place to go for info. I am running a front to back swap and sit at about 5" lift. I can run 32's with some trimming. You can check out my pics at www.canadianshield.ca and go to the photo section and look at MY Grand.
One thing I will say about the grand. You should do the trimming instead of just going up to avoid trimming. If you do that you will increase you chance of tipping over. I guy on NAGCA lifted high enough to fit 33's without trimming and ended up flipping in a prarking lot by turning to fast. And he wasn't going that fast.
Hope that helps.
