I have a 2000 green Jeep Wrangler sahara.
It is stock right now.
It is going to be a daily driver so no hardcore lifts and tires.
I am purchasing a 4in. suspension lift.
i was looking at the procomp stage 1 kit.
Is everything i will need be includued in that kit?

also i am looking at the moto metal 951s for rims.
Which tires should i put on it.
I want 33s, but keep in mind its going to be a daily driver with trails on the weekends.

I am barely 6 months into owning my TJ and did a lot of research before I started buying parts. From my own experience and many other reviews from this forum, here is what I would do:

Rough Country 2.5" Suspension Lift

JKS 1.25" Body Lift

Advance Adapters Transfer Case Shifter Bracket

If you have vibes after doing the lift, then add the JKS Motor Mount Lift

Kumho Road Venture MT KL71 (33X12.5R15)Tires

Add whatever 15x8 rims you like and you've got the basics covered. The Rough Country lift has been getting really good reviews from what I read here. I am not unhappy with my BB, but I would have rather had new springs for the same amount of money. With that and the JKS body lift, you will get pretty close to 4" of lift and easily fit the 33's you want. I have the Kumho tires and love them. :2thumbsup: They are aggressive looking, EXTREMELY quiet on the pavement, have a very soft ride, and perform well on the trails.

As many other people suggest: Do your research, figure out what you really want, save up and do it right the first time. Don't settle on anything, because you will end up unhappy and spending more money in the long run to upgrade to what you wanted anyway. :brickwall

Good luck with your build! :cheers2:
