Jeep overland

Ok guys I am giving up my searches. its a 2002 jeep overland with 4.7L v8
-I am looking for front bumper what works?
-Lift kit... 2 inch? or 3 inch? I heard 3 inch and up is too squirrley for the overland cause it's all wheel drive; is it true?
-airintake...What is best to run on the 4.7L? I used K&N on my cummins so what do you all use? I don't want to be oiling it all the time like K&N

Thanks gents! going from diesel to this little gas puddle is a little different lol. And I totally miss my MPG. Is 13 MPG normal for the jeep? Or is there something wrong?

A 3" kit is fine, it rides great in my opinion and what i started out with but after that there is a lot more parts involved to keep ride quality...

As far as what bumper, do you mean like a winch type bumper like the LSR, ARB type??

Don't use a K&N filters they are garbage just buy a wix drop in type , and i think you should be getting a little more then 13 MPG unless your heavy on the skinny pedal as i get 13 with E-load range tires and a 6.5" lift.... There are a ton of threads about gas mileage and what you should change/replace in an attempt to get better MPG.

Some claim to get mid 20's in the MPG but i think that's quite a stretch as even stock when i bought mine 7 years ago i think i was getting 16-18 MPG

Ya i'm just looking for a bumper to protect from brush have a winch and some lights. I'm not too worried about bull bar type as I am not a crazy off roader anymore. I mainly just go till I can't drive anymore and continue on foot. I will look into that wix. Thanks.

There really isn't much of anything to be gained on the intake, especially with the HO intake. You could put a drop in K&N filter or Airaid or one of the high-flow dry filters, but don't expect any seat of the pants difference.

Since your Overland has Upcountry springs, you're already an inch higher than other Jeeps, so a 2 inch lift for you will be equivalent to a 3 inch on another Jeep. Since 4" is where you start needing a lot more parts, 2 inch would be a better option if you don't want to spend a ton.

I would talk to Kolak and ask him about his 2 inch budget lift.. i believe it's around 120? and then the shocks are bilsteins 5100's for around 300. PM kolak and he can price it out for you CHEAPER than where your looking.... Or email him: kolak@aol.com

OK GUYS! sitrep... I did the 2 inch today by myself. Never did this type work before and I did it in 3 1/2 hours. Looks good! All I got to get is the shocks now.
