Lift help!

I just got my first wrangler, its all stock but i want to put a lift on it which would be able to fit 33"s. what kind of lift would let me lift the truck without dropping to t-case and would be able to fit 33's?

Look at the rancho budget lifts. It all depends on your money circumstances. The zone 4.25 lift is a good choice too.

i run V8 ZJ springs up front(about 2.25" of lift) with a 1.75" coil spacer in the rear and with 1.25" wheel spacers and 7" flares i fit 33's with no problem. i have an '06 LJ, so i don't have any issues with driveline vibes, but i've heard that some TJ's do at as little as 2" of lift. if you get vibes that would mean a t-case drop at least or ideally a SYE and new rear driveshaft.

hope that helps

Zone 4.25" lift.If funds are tight,you can fit 33's with a 2"BB and 1.25"BL (pictured).

If you mean by "fit" to mount them in your driveway and take pictures of it sitting still, sure. But if you mean actually driving it anywhere not a great idea.
