What fuel efficiency? It's a Jeep

Just watch the alignment after my lift the steering wheel was always slightly turned until my alignment. You don't want the tires to wear uneven and that will eventually make for a rougher ride!

Stop posting bad information. You have a ****load of rub unless you're running 3" backspacing on your 35s. There is a difference in being able to install 37s, and being able to USE 37s.

You can easily fit 35s with the right back spacing just as long as you don't love your flares. And as for the lifted look, why not use a bodylift? Your dad can't say **** then, and it will look good, fit bigger rubber and not affect handling (as much) keeps your centre of gravity low. Probably cost like $80 to get a bodylift kit or make one

I'm 19 and i've been building lifted 4x4s and worked on the "low and slow" (well not so slow.. Evos and M3...) since i was 16 and can give you this advice, PAY IT OFF before you build it even if the moneys to you're father because you don't want to blow all your money makin it go up then be stuck when he takes the keys. And most defiantly research everything before you buy. But as far as lifts and loans i'm in the same boat so good luck and do it right!

Just stop trying to look cool and go out and lift it. Not trying to be harsh but the amount of time trying to deceive people to think ur lifted u could have put a lift kit in. Personally I think lifting a yj is pointless. Xj, zj, tj way to go
