TJ With 4cyl Lift???
 
I plan on putting a lift on my 97 TJ with the 2.5L. I was wondering what would be a good lift to put on with 33" tires and if I will need an SYE. Anything will help thank you! Also if anyone has any good 4cyl builds that I could take a look at would be awesome too.

All lifts are the same whether 4 or 6 cyl. 3-4" will need an SYE. Under that won't.

But more important, you will need to regear as a grandpa in a wheel chair will be passing you.

You also need to fill out your profile better. "Stock" is to vague of a term. My stock JEEP was no where near what your stock JEEP is. :p

What kind of wheeling will you be doing? On my first TJ I started out with a 1.25" JKS body lift and a 2" spacer lift. A 33x10.5 fit perfectly. Later I ran 2" OME springs under the spacers and was able to run 36" TSL's.

The problem is that I am not very mechanicaly advanced. I self taught myself with everything I know and go to school for construction. How do I know my gear ratio and all that?

I plan on doing some mild wheeling. Mainly keeping the Jeep for a summer vehicle/wheeling

You have a 4.10 ratio since you have a 4-banger.

I believe that all 4cyl 5spd TJ's had 4.10's and auto's have 3.73 maybe?

If your not doing anything to extreme maybe start out with a budget boost or body lift and running some 31"-32" tires. 31's can be used stock, but without additional bumpstops you will rub the fenders on flex when disco'd. Thats a good place to start because budget boosts are cheap, and easy to do. You won't have a lot invested when you decide to go bigger(been there done that) and pretty easy to sell to someone else later.

The body lift is a good choice because it is also fairly inexpensive, easy to do, and will be needed at some point if you decide to do a raised center skid plate or if you do a motor mount lift.

I would definitely prefer a suspension lift. I hate the look of a body lift and I found some lifts from Rough Country that are in my price range.
