i don't know if i am making the right purchase. i am someone who will OCCASIONALLY take this on a small trail, no really extreme off roading. just looking for some opinions to see if this is a good beginners suspension lift.
For a beginners lift, I would stick with a 2-2.5" lift. Something like Old Man Emu will ride well on the street and not require transfer case drops, slip yoke eliminators, and other modifications along with it.

1. 4" suspension lift, with 2" bumpstop extensions in front and 2-2.5" in the rear. Requires a SYE/CV shaft.
2. 2.5" suspension lift, with a 1" body lift, with 1" bumpstop extensions in front and 1.25-1.5" in the rear. The 1" BL usually accompanies a 1" Motor Mount Lift to offset some of the driveline angles.
Either way you go, figure on many of the following components: longer front brake lines, extended sway bar links front and rear, gears, brake and steering upgrades to accommodate larger tires, SYE, CV shaft, bumpstop extensions, new shocks, adjustable track bars, and a rear track bar bracket.
For exactly the same set up as you are looking for. I put a 2" Zone on my 2003 Sahara. I now have BFG 33x10.5 and it runs fine on the street. I also installed front and back adjustable track-bars.
2" of lift alone isn't enough for 33s. the front adjustable track bar hits the diff cover or the tie-rod without copious amounts of bumpstop, and the rear track bar binds on the stock axle mount without a relocation bracket.

How about this, if you had the Jeep Spirit, you wouldn't abuse the rest of us trying to enjoy a nice day out wheeling by bringing your brokeass broken down junkyard crap out to play where it can't handle it?[/QUOTE]
