future modifications

I installed a 2"BB from Skyjacker onto my 03 TJ Sport and I was wondering what would be a good setup for my future modifications. I want to end up running 35x12.50s, I was thinking of going with a 4" Skyjacker standard lift w/the BB too. Any suggestions?

Yes (assuming the need for 35's, other than for looks),
- Forget SJ.

- Get a 4", complete, suspension lift and a 1" ~ 1 1/4" bl and remove the 2" BB.
- Get a belly up.


This will allow you to run 35's, allowing for tons of flex, lot's of clearance under the Jeep, and still keep a relatively low COG.


BTW, why will you be needing 35's ?
Remember, with 35's you'll need something other than the D35 rear (assuming that's what's in the Jeep now), upgraded steering, upgraded brakes, 4.88's in the diffs (if you have a 5 speed, else 4.56's will do with the auto tranny), and a 4:1 xfer case, if you have a manual tranny (assuming that you'll be wheeling the Jeep seriously).

I see what you are saying. So I would be better off going with 33s? What about going with the RE 3.5? I kinda figured that I would have a lot more to do if I went with 35s. If I went with 33s, what other mods would I have to make?

Whats a good lift to get if I want to run with 33s with my 2"BB as well? I was looking at TeraFlex or RE, any suggestions?
