First Black Man in Florida with a Wrangler

Oh yeah. All these years I desired to have a Wrangler and watch as other road by me with the tops down and smile on their face. I never understood the feeling until I got my 2006 X model....Wow...can 't go back now and the first thing I have to figure out is how to get it raised and smack on some 33" i need some advice...cheapest way of course

Awesome. Welcome to Wrangler Forum, Mike. You're going to have a blast with the Jeep. I know the feeling you are talking about. There's nothing quite like it. I hope you keep coming back to WF.

We'd love to see some pics of your X, if you get some to show off.

To all who serve, Thank You.

congrats on the jeep and the quickest/cheapest way for 33's is a BB and then maybe a 1'' BL(and 1'' MML as well). that'll give you 3'' of lift, which will be plenty to run 33's.
I'ma come at your like a spider monkey!

Welcome to this forum, and hope you enjoy it. I know your going to love having a Jeep. It already sounds like you've caught the mod bug. I run 33's on my Jeep, and put a 4" Rough Country lift on it. I know you can do it with a 2" body lift, and 2" hockey pucks, but I personally like it all in the suspension. But either way will work. I would say that it all depends on what you want to do with it once it's lifted. If it's just to look good on the street, the 2"+2" will work just fine. I like a lot of articulation on the trails.

Personally, I wouldn't try the "cheapest way" cause more times than none a few months or a little longer down the road u will want to "flex and articulate" on the trails and if u went cheap then this will be very limited and then here u r again.. spending money on a 4" lift kit that will suit your new needs...

another option though could be a 2" budget boost suspension and maybe a 1" body lift...

but like many jeep mods there are so many different approaches u can take to this

maybe u can give us all an idea of what you plan on doing with your new rig :}

Welcome to the forum! If you are looking for the cheapest way to fit 33's, then get out the sawzall, and go to town! You can get 33's on a stock Jeep if you remove enough of the fenders!!!! Seriously though, check out the TJ area and see what other guys are running, and don't be afraid to ask questions about anything!

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!
