I figured it was about time to get started asking questions. After spending nearly a month reading various threads on this forum and doing a ton of searching I finally came to a conclusion. I screwed up.
First, a bit of a back story. I had a 2010 Nissan Xterra Offroad. Was the nicest vehicle I ever owned. The wife decided one day that we were paying way to much for it. Jokingly, I said fine i'll just trade it in on a Jeep. And I did.
So, there you have it. I knew I wanted a newer 2dr Jeep. Found one. Drove it. Kicked the tires on several others. Had lots of buttons.
Like and Idiot I didn't research what I was buying. I had absolutely no Idea Jeeps came with so many different options. All the other vehicles I ever bought had different Trim packages and what not. To be honest even if I had researched I doubt I would have found more than the Trim packages.
The Stealership did their job like champs. So I drove home this 2012 Jeep Sahara. What a ride! It's so cool!
Now comes the realization of what I had done. I read through the forums and I started asking myself more questions. Thought it was buyers remorse at first. Then after more reading I realized my fear had been correct.
I bought the Collage Girls Dream Jeep...
3:21 gears, 18" gaudy wheels, Automatic, and all that jazz.
The wife likes it ok. I'm stoked to own a jeep. Problem is. I want to MOD! Thanks Jeepforum.com
As I've said. I've read a lot on here and realize everyone has an opinion. Most of the time however I end up with more questions than answers after reading some of these threads. I look for an answer to those questions then start questioning, myself for questioning the previous thread. So I know for a fact I've read this somewhere here before but I needed a place where I could ask for myself.
If I were to do a TF 2.5 BB lift do I need spacers or new wheels? (I believe the answer is yes, please follow my line of thought)
If so, I need 4.5 back spacing on the aftermarket wheels correct?
From looking around at some places for wheels I'm not sure if 16" or even 15" wheels will work. I thought I saw someone say they would but I can't seem to find what I need.
Last question. Is 2.5" lift to much right off the bat if I don't plan on putting bumpers or skids on anytime soon. And I mean, to quote the wife " when heck freezes over" kinda length of time?
Sorry about the novel. Thanks for finishing.
