I have a rubi with 5.5 and 35's and you have too do a whole bunch o stuff to make it ride right. Im not sure what kind of budget you were thinking of but If you wanna run those tires just be prepared to spend some coin too do it right.

i have a 5 speed. would a cheaper and easier option be going with 33s? im planning to move from memphis to oregon in the next few months. i want to lift it and get bigger tires while i still have a little extra cash. it seems like its a better option for someone on a somewhat tightish budget.

Yes. 2" springs or BB and a 1.25" body lift/1" motor mount lift.

You'll probably lose 5th gear until you regear depending on the lay of the land in Oregon. It probably won't be too bad in Memphis.

Cool. I know where we are going in oregon isn't to bad. Getting there is a different story. But I'll worry about that when the time comes. I just want to get this list and stuff done and done right.

First thing I'd do is ditch the chrome tube side steps. I'd also limit myself to 33's. TSL's are not exactly road "friendly" anyway.

Another thing to keep in mind is, if you want/need a little help, look up Midsouth Jeeps. Good club with cool people out of Memphis. I am a member there and the club some of us started a few months ago (West Tennessee Offroad) attended their Fall Run this past October. Good peeps and always willing to help swing a wrench.

If you want more info, either sign up on their forum or hit up 95ZeeJay here. Her name's Gwen.

Talk to him bro. He's a cool guy. His dad actually gave me my spare 33 at the hyper tech meeting in July. Lol
