need help with YJ in colorado springs

I just bought a 94 YJ today. I love this thing. Its a bit rough but I can get it up to par.

I think it has a 4" lift in it with 35" tires. I want to put a 2.5" lift with 33" tires. Any suggestions? I also need a new manifold, speakers,stereo, mirrors (inside and out). I am replcing the tie rod ends on sunday(hopefully). It has the natorious death sway. Anyone in colorado springs that knows how to do this reply to mbrinz76@gmail.com and we can talk. i appreciate the help. I am in the Army and could use a little help finding the right place to get gear. I also need a seat belt (female end for the driver side)

Why do you want to lower it and put smaller tires on it? 33s look great with a 4in lift.

What size rims are those? I want a more narrow than wide tire. I feel that I have too much gap between the body and tire.

Congratulations on your new Jeep! Sounds like you got a pretty nice set up.
I work at "The Faricy Boys Jeep" here in Colorado Springs and we would love to be your Jeep Accessory Headquarters. We have access to everything you could possibly every need for your Jeep.

We have a few Jeep events set up for this year that we would like to welcome you to take part in. The next event is our "Rock Solid Trail Day" for May 5th, 2013 at Medano Pass down near the Great Sand Dunes National Park. This is a great way get out there and meet other guys from the Colorado Springs area and set up some wheeling trips. You can sign up for our trips on our Facebook page if you are interested in joining us. We try to make a wheeling trip at least once a month with some guys from our shop and some of our customers. Here is another link to some pictures and videos of previous trips we've made. The Faricy Boys | New Chrysler, Jeep dealership in Colorado Springs, CO 80923

Happy Wheelin!

I actually have a 6 " lift and want to take it down to a 4" lift. I want to make it better on the road. Any suggestions on how to reverse the lift. Ie.. Drive shaft, transfer case, ect.

I am still active. My wife said I can't work on the house anymore so I bought this jeep. I just replaced the manifold last night. It sucked but we got it done. Now I have to work on the suspension to get rid of the horrible vibration. I am willing to help and learn as well .
