could use some help

Hey Guys

Im new to jeepforum and im hoping im posting this in the right place. Anyway I just bought my first jeep. its a 06 tj sport with a 4.0. I was hoping to put in a lift. Im going to put in 3" aev coils and some 33in tires. I will also be buying rims. Any recommendations on tire width and what kind and size bump stops to put in to limit rubbing. I was also thing about some wheel spacers. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

First, welcome to the fun side. Second, I'd spend time using search and looking through the TJ forum. They will have all the info there as well as a thread showing how different Jeeps look with a variety of lifts and tires on them.

I'll answer some of your questions here, but I'd recommend still looking in the TJ forum.

Width of 33's, I'd stick w/ the 12.5, but it depends more on what you wheel in or if you will be at all. Some people love the doughnut look to the narrow tire. Your lift should come w/ bump stop add-ons. I'd also look into a 1" body lift, as that adds a little extra space. As for wheel spacers, I'd avoid them if you can and since you're buying rims, just buy ones w/ the proper back spacing so it's not required. I'm not opposed to spacers, though it does present another point of failure that you don't want to deal with.

Just my .02.. Enjoy the Jeep!
