im a newb, need info

hello everyone, ive come to this site because im curious and considering about getting a jeep wrangler. there are so many kinds i just wanted to know what is the best one.... like all around, i know everyone has their preferences but im just curious.

another thing is that if i was to get one i want to lift it and i would like to put 35s under it.... what special mods need to be done, if any to make it work...

thanks for letting me have a moment of your time. any and all help is appreciate...

The newer the better if you have limited wrenching skills. The first time Jeeper would probably be best off with a TJ. You can find a decent one that is mechanically sound for a resonable price.

Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

Going to take some $ and a fair amount of modding to put 35's under a TJ if you want to go offroad. I'm sure there are some threads here describing what needs to be done to lift if for 35's. Lots of folks do it, but there is some work involved.

i have a YJ but if your looking for something newer and nicer a TJ is prolly the best way to go... i might be wrong but i think you can fit 31s on a stock TJ... might be 30s with maybe a little rubbing on turns depending on the width of the tire you run... rubicons are the best overall package that you can get when it comes to options and everything but you will also have to pay more for them... to get 33s or 35s on a TJ or any wrangler you would need a few inches of lift in the suspension and im sure some of these guys can tell you the actually specs on that

It sees that conventional wisdom is to not go any bigger than 33s on the D35 diff that is in the rear of most YJs and TJs, especially if you plan on any serious offroading. Apparently, the D35 is a weak link in an otherwise good drivetrain. There are a lot of upgarde options, the two most common being the D44 from a Cherokee and the 8.8 from the Ford Exploder.

A lot of rigs run the 4" spring lift and 33s with no further mods, so that may be the way to get started. If you have the means, there are certainly many other options and upgrades, and depending on what you want to spend, you can get pretty crazy.
