I have a 1998 jeep wrangler se. i got a 4" skyjacker lift kit sitting in the garage with plans of running 33" tire but am now wondering if 33s would be too much for the 4 banger. i have 4.10 gears but would i be better off with 31s instead? i really want 33s but if it impacts performance too much than idk. opinions please!
I have a 99 tj and it has a 4cyl 5 spd. I have a 4 inch lift and run 33's with the 4.10 gears. It is very driveable like this and is not as bad as some make it out to be. The only problems you will have are driving on a hwy into a strong wind or going up a big hill you will have to downshift. In town it's not bad at all. Now that being said I am planning on regearing in the next few months to 4.88's.

If you don't live in the Rockies you'll be fIne with 4.10s a five speed and 33s.
