99 YJ project questions

Ok so I just bought a 99 YJ and I'm looking to make it off road ready. No Rock crawling or extreme badass moves, just don't want to get stranded or break when I'm in the riverbeds. I've already put 33" bf Goodrich A/T on it with the 2" lift that was already installed. I want to go a bit taller with the lift and replace some items in the under carriage to make it sturdier and more durable. My question is, where do I start? Tell me what all I need to do, or check to get this project where I want it. I've got the time and money, just need help with the wisdom.

You're off to a pretty bad start....there's no such thing as a 99 yj lol. Post some pictures up and we'll tell you what you got and where to go from there. Also try to fill in as much info as you can in your profile about your jeep.

And welcome to the forum

Well if you go any bigger with tires I suggest getting an 8.8 or something stronger axle wise. After that it'll be hard to get stranded in a river bed lol

Ok so here is what I know without pics yet for you all to analyze. It's a 4 banger ( I know I know) with less then 40k. New manual trans, stock ratio. 2" body lift. Steel brush on front and back that need to be replaced. Everything else is stock.
