road trip?

hey. recently put on a 3" susp. lift with 33x12.50. Now i've gotta take about a 500 mile road trip (mostly highway). Is this gonna be a PITA or smooth sailing? I wanted to know if any of you guys have driven long distances with this type of setup? my jeep is an 02' sahara. thanks for any input!

If you properly put your lift on and aligned and balanced your tires, It's no problem. I drove from Ohio to Camp Jeep Virginia and back without a problem. What's your concern.

Depends on the quality of the lift.

What gearing do you have with those 33's? If it's a 3.07, you'll be in for a long trip.

Let us know how it goes with the 3.73. If it's an auto with O.D. you may be ok.

Good Luck
