I wouldnt worry about doing anything until 35s or bigger. And I wouldnt do that anyways if you plan to ever go over 55mph or spend less than an hour getting up to that speed!

35s look great but wow do they kill a jeeps speed.

BTW thats a good price on the BDS/Shackles.
Personally I would just go with a 4" RC lift. There have been bad rumors floating around about RC and tbh.. thats just what they are. Rumors.

Check out the "Have you owned RC?" poll in YJ section.
Anyhow if you were looking for a good lift to clear 33s and didnt want to destroy your bank account its worth checking into.

I've looked at those too, forgot to add that in the original. I've only seen one or two kits though. Have to look into that further.

Good to know, I don't have a reason to go any higher than 33's so it should be fine. And I have trouble doing 55 now lol soo..

I've read through that thread before actually. I'm definitely hesitant to consider RC but I suppose it's not totally out of the question. Thanks for the info.

Alright kool, thanks.

Here's a quick update:
Just finished removing the inner shift boot



Before:



After:



(of course I put back on the outside shifter boot)
I took it for a ride around the block and without the inner boot, shifting was noticeably smoother and it wasn't even that cold. This should really help on those freezing mornings when it's difficult to shift. (sometimes it would pop out of second and fourth and difficult to throw in reverse). Only took a few minutes and it's totally free, great mod for those driving a stick.

I was thinking it might of been the lift too but it's not. My stock springs are flat so the shackles more or less just even it out. On the drive to school this morning is worked great. Didn't want to pop out and was definitely easier to shift.

Pulled this from page 1

I have had the opposite experience. Bump steer improved on my YJ when I removed my track bars.

Every Jeep I have had with front leaves had bump steer without a track bar. That is why the YJs came with them. The more you lift them, the worse it gets.

Hope you have as much fun as we did...We bought an 89 and after really ripping in apart we pretty much rebuilt the whole truck. Good news is it was well worth it. This was a father, son project for my son and was his first car as well...We'll have picks up sometime soon..
