new jeep what to do?

My name is Eddie, I live in the Kansas City area. I recently purchased a 2006 Wrangler Unlimited. The wife wasn't to happy - I want to do a little something with the lift and tires - with that said - I am curious what I can do with little costs, keeping the stock rims, but would like to go with a bigger tire but keep similar fuel economy! my questions are: tire size (32?), best tire for mostly on road - but enough to play off road, and lift. In addition, for those from the KC area, maybe some suggestions as to where I could go to have this done etc... Remeber I said the wife wasn't happy so the least cost the better... thanks, and I'm sure you all get this type of question all the time (I haven't found a similar ? yet) so please be gentle.

Friendly this question in the "Wrangler Forums Group" you're likely to get more responses there. Also, definitely add pictures using Photobucket or similar website so others can see the Jeep and know what you're working with!

Good luck!!

Hi Eddie,

Good choice in Jeep model. I am also on a tight budget. I started off with a 2" Budget Boost or BB for less than 150 dollars and a Body Lift or BL for around 120. Very easy to install alone. I kept the stock shocks and haven't had any problems. It's better to get new ones. Skyjacker Hydros are very recommended bang for buck and are now on sale buy 3 get one free. Tires are up to you. I run 33's. I have a pic in my sig.

My wife was not up to mods at first. She came around with time. HEHE.
Now I am working on a Rubicon Express or RE 3.5 superflex kit and eventually Long arms$$$$$$$$.
