I have a 93 ZJ limited (straight 6 Alltime 4wd, Automatic) all stock except for a 1 inch body lift and rancho 5000's (thats how I bought it) I am putting on an additional 4.5 in RE suspension lift and replacing the 1 inch w/ a 2 inch body lift. I also want to run 31 or 33 MT/r's. Will I need to change gears when I run these bigger tires or will the stock ones perform well enough. I am also installing ARB lockers front and rear will this have any effect on the gear ratios?
the lift (body) is actually a coil spacer. You can add that to the top of the 4.5. You're going to go from stocker to Tonka very quickly. You will need to regear for tires because your 3.55s aren't going to cut it.
You will need to get all adjustable control arms and a new front drive shaft if yours is the CV one.

Here's a great way to lift a '93-'98 Grand Cherokee to fit 30" and most 31" tall tires without spending lots of time and money in the process. It's a simple yet well engineered method of suspension lift. The Kit includes coil spring spacers for the front & rear along with longer bump stops. Allows for greater tire clearance without compromising the factory ride quality and with a less complex installation. )
