Finally a Jeeper

Just bought my first Jeep! Dad had a CJ7 when I was growing up but I always wanted my own. Everyone I spoke with said go with the TJ body style so here it is. My 1997 Jeep wrangler TJ with only 104k Miles 31" wrangler mt/r's and bushwacker fender flares. Pro comp 4" will be installed mid February . Any advice gladly accepted.

Sweet! Welcome to the world of Jeep.

When you do your lift take your time with it, they are not difficult to install. Make sure you have access to a good jack and safety stands. When you do the install loosen the frame to control arm bolts, track bar axle bolt in front, and both track bar bolts in the rear before you start. When you are finished put the wheels on the ground and bounce the suspension a few times then tighten all the bolts. Doing this will allow the bushings to orient to their new position without stressing them.

Solid advice, it's not just my first jeep, it's also my first lift install. I wanted the pride of actually building my rig.

So my four inch fell through, but I was able to find a 2" for a quick fix since I'd already squired the 33/12.50's

That's a nice ride. Welcome to the wonderful world of jeeps and offroad capacities that you have acquired through the jeep name.
