4" Suspension LIFT???? 1979 CJ7

All right, PLEASE everyone give their opinions on what suspension/spring lift they recommend for a soft comfortable ride around town and still a little mud on the tires... 1979 CJ7 304 V8 3 speed.

Also, getting ready to put headman fenderwell headers and catback exhaust, manifold bolts look like something from the titanic all crusted over... how much $$ problems am I gonna run into with this?

To answer your 2nd ques. 1st: You can't have fenderwell headers AND a cat back exhaust. You'll have to pick one or the other. There's really no way to run full duals on the outside of the frame rail. Here's mine w/ fenderwell headers and sidepipes. I don't think it's too loud. It's louder than a stock Harley but quieter than a Harley w/ drag pipes.
As far as lifts go, mine has a Black Diamond 3" lift with 3/8" extended shackles. Keep in mind I still have the 31's on it. (no coin for 33's yet)http://It rides pretty good.It rides...nt=Jeep005.jpg

I run the REE 4.5 YJ springs on my 79 CJ-7 with the shackle reverse, it rides and handles better then it did when I bought it new.

REE seem to be the best quality kit these days, but each is there own. I just go SOA for the comfort ride and to get the flex I need. I was nicked named the weeble wobble this weekend

Cj7 304 V8

1979 Jeep CJ7 304 V-8 3 speed.

Sorry, that's how much I know... I meant fenderwell headers with purple hornie glasspacks...

Help me out with this tire/wheel chart... I would like to put IROK RADIAL 33 X 13.50 tires on American Racing Outlaw II rims on my cj7. I have no idea what RIM numbers will/wont work...
