^ Um not really very well. IMHO maybe 35's with the d30 beefed up and a super 35 kit on the back.

Anyway.

Mine with 32" km2's it will fit 33's no problem. It's a 2.5" rc lift, 1" boom shackles, 1" body lift, and the flares raised about an 1" or so.

main reason is its my dd.im sure youve seen my 4.0 swap thread.almost ready for swap.finaly getting some power.and i dont want to go crazy with big tires.but i t all depends on how the 4.0 is with 4.10 gears.and the bigger the tire the more $ they are.

You could always start with a 2" lift. Then when you get bigger tires you can add shackles and or a small body lift.

Here, www.myjeeplj.com .. i think thats right. theres no actual YJ pics but just click on the TJs and click the amount of lift and tire size u want and it gives u bunches of pics.. that may help.. but again, theres no yj in the pics.. they are all tjs and ljs..

rc 2.5 in lift 30X9.50 tires hasn't settled yet. if you can get 4in kit with 2.5in springs that would be the way to go if you decide 2.5 in. wished I would have known that before I ordered, you will more than likely need the stuff in the 4in kit why not get it for the same price

I think when the time comes I will order the 4inch kit with 2.5 springs.that way if I decide to keep my 31s it will look good.could also do a small shackle and or body lift

Are you having problems with the 32's rubbing? Why would you get smaller tires?

If I have a total of about 5.5 inches of lift what all will be required?
I know brake line extensions, SYE, maybe a cv drive shaft, drop pit arm, will I need a t-case drop?

Pros on here correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure you don't need to lower the Tcase if you have the SYE/CV driveshaft combo. Tcase drop is just a bandaid if you don't have SYE/CV.

Better gas mileage and more flexing and I can't seem to find a good mud tire in a 32 they're all 31s or 33s.

Did you re-gear your axles or leave them 4.10

Ref gears

I have not redone the gears, they are stock and im not exactly sure what the stock gears are. I had 31s on prior to lift and now 33s bfgoodrich mudd terrains. I have noticed power loss due to all being stock except carb which is a weber, flowmaster exhaust, and msd ignition and ignition coil. My next step is new gears just havent done yet. Is it a must, i do not think so. Still have plenty low end power to get me out of mudd and climb which i use jeep mostly for weekend fun.
