Aloha! New to WF...Just picked up a 1998 TJ

Bought the Jeep as a daily driver/weekend toy. Gonna build it up to hit trails and sand mostly here in Hawaii. First mod is to swap the 4 banger for a 4.3L Chevy Vortec with a AX-15 trans to replace my AX-5. Keeping the stock 231 transfer case, should be sufficient. Next is to get it up about 5-6 inches, wanna do all suspension no body lift, any suggestions??? wanna run wide 35 inch tires. not too worried about having a crazy flex system, something that will run good on and off highway.....

Welcome to the forum. I just spent the week of the 3rd through the 10th of July on Maui. Had a great time.
