Remacal Budget $5-7k for everything, granted I do all the work myself. I’d like to have 33” tires (open to suggestions), 3.5-4.25” lift, bumper/grille, winch, and maybe some LEDs. Mainly spare daily but will definitely be on the beach and in trails(pine barrens w/ mud, water, sand). It will be manual trans...yes I have done my research about manual trans off-road and I still would prefer it. I’m thinking a 4.10 gear ratio

biffgnar Not sure where you did research that you decided Procomp was a good choice, but it definitely wasn't here. As I said, go over to TJ Tech, search and read. This topic has been beat to death.

Also really need to know a lot more to make recommendations - how do you use your jeep, what is your budget, etc., etc.

He's talking about this place.

I don't know much about TJ lifts, and I rarely buy from 4WPs. But 11 years ago I had to buy a set of YJ front leaf springs fast. I got a set of Procomp 4" springs from 4WPs. And they were ok. But just a over a month ago, one of them snapped. I sent an email to them about their life time warranty. 10 minutes later I got a call(I put my number in the email). Joe said he'd send, to my house, two new Procomp springs with all the bushings. I'm now back on the road with new springs. And yes, 4WPs owns Procomp, but they will sell you anything you want.

It might be a little hard to steer. It still has the track bar and sway bar attached, I wonder why? You need to put some 40s on it and run it through the mud. Replace the diff fluid first.


I know it's an old post. But this is the first time I saw it.

Do you have any suggestions for parts?

Thanks in advance
Stop talking to 4 Wheel Parts. They will sell you nothing but garbage from their affiliate companies.

Go over to the TJ Tech section. Use the search function. There will be hundreds of threads on lift kits and builds for TJs. You'll probably save some money and end up with better equipment.

Photoweborama Ok, stupid question...

I just got a 99 WJ, first 4x4 since I had to get rid of my wagoner after the my daughter, the first born came. She just turned 30...

I was thinking of just a BB, but is it worth it? Or Should I look into the kits that come with new springs?

I don’t intend to go much higher than 2” anyway. And just intend for mild hill and trails. BTW, it has KYB gas shocks on it now, but they have seen there better days, but it only has 115,000 original miles on it.

Any opinions would be appreciated!

Lory Top tip, these posts are as relevant on my suspension re&re in 2015 as they were in 2003. All good stuff and I will add a sawzall for the busted bolts that were seized into the hiems of my rear lower control arms. Once a bolt is busted in there and frozen to the ball... cutting is the only way. Thanks for this thread all of you. Ratchet straps also saved my a$$ a couple of times.

Lift Kit and Chrysler Warranty

Recently purchased 2015 Unlimited Sport (first wrangler) and am novice on everything. I want to put a lift on it but am afraid if I go outside the dealership/Mopar parts and labor that this will void the manufacturer warranty. The lift is 2x what I can get from Les Schwabb and installed. I want to do 3" lift and 33" tires and no spacers. Please help.

Higher leafs in the rear?

Asking for your opinion and expertise. So I will start out by saying that I am using my Jeep as an overlanding vehicle, so I will be loading that back with quite a bit weight with every trip I take. And in addition to that I will be putting in a small audio system, with extra storage space cabinets in the rear. Which, just off the top of my head, will be probably around 200lb. So I will be going with a 3.5" rubicon express lift. So I'm wondering if you guys would suggest putting on 4.5" rubicon express leaf springs in the back? Thanks!

Thiessen952 I currently have a 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9 limited and looking for a jeep way to lift it. Is it smart to go with 3in spacers? Or should I replace the shocks when I do that? Please help

Rpitts4 Would it be a good idea and safe idea to have a 3.5 coil lift with 3 in spacers on top of that on my 96 zj? Just looking for help
