Jeep Unlimited Modification Questions

OK, I am new to Jeeps, hell, I am a ******* to all 4 X 4's. I bought an 04 Jeep Unlimited. It is the same as the day it was bought new. I have a few questions because I know nothing about all this. I want my Unlimited beefed up.

1. Any suggestions on what to use to put 33" tires on? Can I use the stock 15" x 8" rims?

2. Will bigger tires screw up the speedo?

3. If so, what else will be screwed up?

4. What kind of lift kit will I need and any suggestions?

5. Told you that I am a ******* when it comes to all this.

Thanks,
Donald.

I am NOT trying to be a d!ck, but as a fellow newb, I have learned that many of your questions have been answered or at least addressed. USE THE SEARCH button and then ask more specific questions is a much better strategy.

Check out my sig you can see what I 've done to get 33's on.

I do not disconnect when wheeling, I am sure it would rub if I did. Without disconnecting I do not rub. Most will recommend a bigger lift for 33's. I just don't need much articulation for the mud and sand I wheel in.

You will have to change the speedo gear. Do a search. It is very easy.

Also, I personally am not happy with the performance of stock ring and pinion(3.73 to 1) with 33's. Overdrive is way weak for me. I will regear to 4.56's before to long.

After 3" front springs 'cause I didn't like the sag.
