Hello all, new to 4 wheelin and just trying to decide how to proceed. I was thinking about going with a 3" IRO lift and 265/75/16. Would this setup work for some or most of the trails in CO? Also were would I go to break her in so to speak? Any advise would be appreciated.

Just to add I was advised that I should not lift it because it is awd, from my understanding this should not make a difference whether or not it can or should be lifted.

Does any one out there running a lifted WJ with a Quadra trac II?

Plenty of lifted WJ's around; I am doing mine next month when all the parts are here

Study up and read all you can in the WJ section.

Just another old fart in a Jeep... watchout younguns!!!

Ok, so after spending a few hours looking over some off the treads in the forum i have decided to go with the 3" IRO lift and ATB and running 265/70/16 and swapping out the front drive shaft. Are there a decent amount of trails that this set up can run and were are they at.

I wish I would have remembered about the front driveshaft before I had the factory one rebuilt, it would have cost me the same amount of funds. I guess that is what I get for being in a hurry and not researching my options.

I had the 3 inch lift and had no problems at most places. Also I had the OEM drive shaft and no issues.
