nope

No, thats not my jeep. Its a jeep i found on ebay today. I don't have one but i'm going to get one pretty soon, i just put that picture in for fun

The jeep i'm actually looking at is a 2 door wrangler red, with a lift, some bigger tires, and then some new rims. I was also thinking on making it diesel with the help of my truck friend. So I was wondering how big the lifts should be on it
haha I know they say its a bad thing to put lifts on a jeep cause it will tip easier, but I am getting lifts so yea they can suck it

A lift can lead to problems. Anything that is slightly worn before a lift will break after you put the lift on and drive it. It will/can ride rougher. There is a slight chance it'll tip easier, but don't drive it like a hotrod. You'll spend all of your weekends tinkering with your jeep.

I wouldn't change anything that I have done to put my lift on though. The looks I get and the stuff I can play on now is amazing.

If you want someone to tell you lifts are bad, you have come to the wrong place. Pretty much everyone on this site has a lifted Jeep.

Get as much lift as you want! Remember though, the more you lift it, the more issues you have to deal with through the process. I am the *last* person to ask any questions to, but the rest of these guys will have some great advice for you once you have the Jeep and figure out what you want to do to it.

Good luck and have fun!

Rachel

1st decide what you want to do with the jeep. Is the lift for looks? Is it so you can go off-road easier? Is it to drive over ricers? All important questions. Once you figure that out. Then decide how much of a budget you can afford. This will help you to determine what size lift, tires etc you can add. Also don't forget the jeep might need some fixing up before the project starts.

Well you need to figure out what lift is on the jeep your looking at. If you're going to drop a diesel in it, how much does it weigh? <That will effect the front springs. What size tire do want to run?

How much is your budget to do all this?

Well, i don't have it yet, but once i get it i'm thinking about making it diesel. If i make it diesel i heard that it should give better mpg and some more power to it. for tire size i was thinking about 32'' tires the budget i would say is about 30 grand and its going to be a 2 door red jeep wrangler unless i can get a 4 door at a good price

I hope you've been doing your research on putting a diesel in a Jeep and the trickle effect of parts that you will need.

Because diesel would give it some more power and increases the mpg it gets. It would also let you smoke people out and the 30 grand budget is an over all of a while. Because i'm getting lifts, new bumpers, rims, and the diesel change if i go with it
