Brand New to Jeep

Yes.. Im a girl.. and I wanted a jeep my whole life.. so I bought one a few months ago. Now I want a lift and fat tires I have 2" blocks.. a friend bought them for me. Here's my question: Is this enough? Appropriate? blocks verses a real lift kit? I want 33's and Ive been reading on here that 2" may not cut it anyway.... suggestions?

Welcome, If you add a 1.25" body lift and a 1" motor mount lift you'll be fine

And for further questions TJ Jeep Wrangler Forum - Jeep Wrangler Forum

I'm running a 4 in long arm kit on 33x12.5 one it's great, just have to watch you angles on ur axels and what your gearing is, it may not be good enough to run the 33s.. I have 3.73 gears wit a Dana 30 and Dana 44 I'm upgrading to 4.56 gears to put it closer to what should be there for the bigger tires
