I have used both the Currie 3" spring and the MC 3.5" front spring. I like them both very much. However, the MC rear 3.5" spring requires 3" of bumpstop extension and will most certainly be the...

Most long arm kits are poorly designed junk made for simple installation and not function. You will be best served with a quality 4" short arm suspension lift and a 1.25" body lift.

Take into...

The zone 4.25" would be the better of the two. You most likely won't need to do a SYE and rear driveshaft with this kit, or at least not right away. You will also need to have quality adjustable...

I had the 126 with ZJ v8 steering, but moved it to my XJ and bought a Metalcloak for my TJ. The JKS feels like a piece of tin compared to the MC track bar. I would not bother with the JKS and go...

If tire coverage isn't an issue I would suggest looking for a pair of stock rubicon, or Sahara flares. They are an inch wider than the sport and se flares and aren't extremely brittle like the bush...

Not sure about the zenon flats for a TJ, but my buddy has a set on his YJ and they sagged badly. After seeing that I would never consider them. Personally I think the tapered 3" DeFenders are one of...

The zone 4.25" kit and a Metalcloak front track bar is a great starting point.

The zone 4.25" kit with 33" tires is a good starting point for a build on a budget.

You need a lot more than just a lift kit to run 35" tires safely and reliability. That would not be a kit I would use or suggest.

It's very easy to make a lot of TQ and HP with the 4bt. The question should be is it worth the cost when you can do a V8 swap for half the cost and gas is far cheaper than diesel. Not to mention the...

You will need quite a few things to do this swap and it would be easier to do if the donor was a 97 TJ.

The small block Chevy was popular in old CJ and YJ wranglers, but not really in the TJ. An LS motor is a fairly popular swap, but costly vs a magnum V8 which is the cheapest and easiest swap. My next...

I believe you will get the extra lift either way since it's the axle tube that makes it gain the height. You will need to do the SYE with the axle swap. The pinion is a bit more offset and can cause...

Front and rear adjustable track bars aren't generally needed for a 2.5" lift. Maybe a front, but only if something rubs, or if the axle being a bit off center bothers you.

There is only one...

JK front springs give you no lift and the rear springs about 2.5" after you modify the spring to fit. It just isn't worth the effort when you can buy both front and rear lift springs for $200.00.
