2001 Sport (3-4" lift for 33" tires)

Not my first Jeep, but have been gone awhile. My 05 Rubicon was heavily modified and was my rock crawler. 15 was my wife’s daily driver and was never really used.

Just bought this clean 2001 TJ from a good friend and it is a well maintained clean canvas with zero mods. I’m done with rocks so I’m looking for a fun road worthy Jeep we can take to the beach and in a pinch use it for Nilgai hunts. I want to do a 3-4” lift so I can easily fit 33’s, but again I’ll be staying on level’ish ground. Also need the springs to maintain some payload for hunting, but everything I’m reading is talking about flex.

What set up do y’all recommend? I want to keep this thing 100% good on road, but don’t want to waste a lot of money on a lift that is more off road than I need.

Thank you,

Here's mine 97 2.5" lift and 32's. It's fine other than in need of a gear job.

2001 Sport with Zone 4" and 33"s. It sits fairly high, as far as getting in and out is concerned, so take that into consideration.

They're Tread Wrights, so their 33's are a true 33" instead of running a little small like most manufacturers.

I liked the other pic you posted with the Jeep clean.

another vote for the zone 4.25" combo. the Zone combo lift uses 3" BDS coils, which have a decently high spring rate and hold up well to additional loads

here it is with 33" MTR's

I don't mean to be sycophantic, but that may be the best looking TJ I've seen.

I run a 2" budget boost with Rancho 9000xl shocks and a 1.25" JKS body lift. Runs very well with my 33" Duratracs for not a lot of money.

Never forget that shocks and tire pressure are the primary contributors to ride quality.

Lots of love for the OME products from DPG Offroad for 33's around here as well.

Man, those look like 35's too! Love the look of the frameless top.

I think he sold that one a while ago and has been through a few since then...
