question about lift and tires

I'm not sure where to find a 6" suspension lift for my wj I've looked on a lot of sites. And also what size tires can I fit with a 4" lift

How much are you wanting to spend?

Kolak sells lifts, as does Kevin's Offroad. Both have good customer service.

The two most popular routes are Clayton and IRO.

Tire size will depend on how much you're willing to trim on the fenders. Plus you get bigger than 33s and you have axles (upgrades or swaps) to worry about.

Its one of those "If you gotta ask" questions.

That's as casually as I can dodge your question about my setup.

The standard Clayton kits are about 2500 for their 6", IRO is a touch under 2000 for their comparable. I don't think either includes shocks but I don't remember.

Clayton is better and is welded on, sometimes I wish I would of went with them instead of iro. Iro is bolted on, so far it's been fine. Bolted is nice if you ever want to swap the lift to a different WJ, you could weld it if you wanted too I guess. I might weld it on and beef it up more but I'm still looking for the 40k overland for $1800 that everyone talks about. Same goes for rock climbing you might want to swap all your goodies from the flipped or crashed WJ

Like dillonjm said, How much are you wanting to spend?
Mine the lift, axles/drivetrain cost a bit more than the overland it's on but I went the extra, it rides better than stock. Even with 33" tires 4.56 gears are nice to have if you want to help keep the stock power when your turning bigger tires also if your keeping the stock axles I would at least truss the rear.

04 Overland on 33's, Lift & tires= 8" over stock.
