Getting 4 inch lift tomorrow. Need help



Getting rough country 4 inch installed from a local shop. My biggest question is, are 33 inch tires going to fit those little rims? do i need wheel spacers and what size? Any recommendations for what tire to get? What about shackles... do i want new ones? This 94 is still 100% stock so ANY recommendations i want to hear.

you can put 33's on those wheels. depends on which 33" tire you choose. the stock wheels that you have are only 7 inches wide. the standard wheel for a 33x12.50x15 is a 15x8 wheel, so you are an inch narrower in rim size.

it is possible that the tire will rub the leafs on a full turn. most you would need to do is to run the steering stops out a little instead of doing the wheel spacer thing.

Looks like its going to be a street machine, so you shouldnt have any problems with flex and tires rubbing in the back of the wheel wells. 33's will rub the back of the front fenders in a flex if you put it in a hard enough twist.

There isnt any reason for new shackles, unless yours are showing wear. Might want to upgrade to a greasable shackle bolt.

That 94 looks to be in mint condition. should be a good looking machine once you get it lifted. keep us posted with more pics.

Do you have any tire recommendations? Also am i better finding a larger rim? I could only afford something from the junk yard though probably. The jeep is in mint condition i got it at 20000 now its at 31000 and time for a lift. You guys read that right... only 31000

Watch out for that rear axle and 33's.... Works fine if all you do is pavement pound, and just cruise, but offroad a D35 isn't going to last terribly long.

I have been running 33x12.50 15s for years on my 4" lifted YJ and I have done a fair amount of muddying as well as quite a bit of rock crawling. The D35 will last a while as long as you are t mashing down the skinny pedal every chance you get. Technical driving is the key to keeping it in good working order. With that said, the D35 is the weak link in the drivetrain. I will. E changing mine out at some point as I have planned for the past 6 years, lol.

Tire suggestions, I have has my Maxxis Big Horns for about 5 years with a lot of rocks, mud and pavement under them and they perform fantastically! Whether or not the 33s fit your rim is going to depend on the width you get....
