New 91 YJ to me..383 stroker!!

I just bought this stalled project YJ jeep and not into bogging, off roading okay, just love these jeeps not sure why???
This will be a "Mall Crawler" with attitude.
Any how it has a 4" suspension lift, and is all stock except for the engine, and clutch, it has the AX-15, NP231 transfer case, and Dana 35/30 diffs.
I know it has a little more hp and torque from stock and will be expect some driveline issues if not all to be on the weaker side.
I want to get the dual exhaust completed with an H tube and out to the back. I need to increase the tire size ...thinking to go with 33 on 15" wheels. Not sure what offset to get here? Any ideas??
Got lucky on the recovery winch as it is a Warn PowerPlant 12000 Dual HP...built in compressor only used to dent the front bumper!(not really needed on a Mall Crawler but looks awesome)
I got aftermarket seats for it and the tub is in really nice shape. Front could use some closer matching paint.
Here are a few pics:

You lost me at mall crawler w attitude..

FWIW, I'm running a GM 5.3 with 2.5" 2 into 1 exhaust and 3" out... Not sure if you need dual exhaust...

Have fun at the food court...

The reason for the dual exhaust is not for the additional hp it gives, I think I have enough of it now, but I want a deep throaty sound, not sure a single exhaust can give me that. What does yours sound like with the 3" single?

Oh it's plenty deep... Check my build thread, or I can post some links later.. A few pages back from the end...

I can't make a tire/wheel combo recommendation till I know what part of the country you're in.
Here, the conditions are sandy with sharp rocks that like to take chunks out of the sidewall. Rain/ ice is almost never a factor here in the southwest.
Tires are best suited to local conditions both on & off road.
I'm going to assume once you take her off road, the trail bug is going to bite you and maybe you'll start doing more off-road exploration.
So where are you, not your address, just the region?

One thing on that motor worries me. It looks like the carburetor return spring is a an extra long hardware store spring that is angled over to a convenient attachment point. If that spring binds or bounces off or breaks, you're stuck at wide open throttle. I would want to get a correct dual spring setup ASAP.

Well to start not in the country but western Canada, we have snow and ice but then I'm in your country in Arizona for the winters.
I would like a tire that looks aggressive but has a smooth pavement ride. I hope that helps??

If you want mall crawler tires you need Nitto Terra Grapplers or Toyo Open Country MT tires.

Make sure you get them in a metric size with a 17"+ wheel for maximum effect.

I was thinking that the more sidewall would give a better ride as in a 15" rim with 33" tires?? Am I wrong thinking that especially for a pavement dweller?

You're not wrong. But mall crawlers tend to like tiny sidewalls on aggressive-looking tires and big gay wheels.

I was commenting with a healthy dose of sarcasm.

I kind of got that but hey this is all new to me.
It goes in for the dual exhaust tomorrow, still trying to negotiate a better price but they range from $800 to $1300 for the same thing??

From what I've learned on this forum, that sounds super expensive for an exhaust job.

I hope you like your outcome but you're spending money on the wrong things to start with IMHO. The money you're putting toward a not needed dual exhaust (for the sound) could be put toward an 8.8 rear because even at the mall you're gonna use that skinny pedal and blow that D35 apart with a 383 and 33's.

You do have a nice platform to start with, I just think you're headed the wrong way.

FWIW, we built my buddies CJ5 with a lightly tuned 350 running a 2-1 exhaust on 2" pipe with a flowmaster muffler and it has plenty of throaty sound.

X2.

A buddy spent a lot of time swapping in a SBC, 33s & 4.5" lift. He got about 2 weeks out of the D35.

probably out breaking stuff.
