What to do next???

I have the 4" lift and 35's. I'm now looking for improvement in ride quality. I don't know if this can be ache iced from getting new rims that don't require wheel spacers or maybe rehearing or improving steering equipment. And for these reasons I've decided to turn to the jeep gods haha. I'm open to any suggestions!

Buy a car. Next you'll want better acceleration to beat the rice boys, then better A/C, then room for a third row seat to haul more people, then 8,000 lb towing to pull the RV. Good luck with all that.

new quality shocks will help you improve your ride quality tremendously more than anything else....but if I were you i'd spend the money on a better short arm setup with a JJ on each end.....when I went from skycrapper control arms to currie, it was a night and day difference...not only in ride quality but also the quality of the arm itself.....

WJ steering was a nice upgrade when I DD's my XJ. Better steering angles, better brakes, and it uses all off the shelf Jeep parts.

I'm going to 35's in a couple weeks. I swapped out my LP30 & D35 for HP D30 & Chry 8.25/29 spline. Regeared to 4.56, front & rear air lockers, and new bushings, ball joints, upgraded steering, disk brakes all four corners. XJ feels like it just came off the new car lot. Really tight.

Gears was a huge upgrade, 4 wheel disks.... I can lock it up with out any issues, new bushings, unit bearings, steering really took it from a "Danger Ride" to a pleasure to drive..

Just adding/replacing worn out parts will improve your ride...
