Thinking about doing rugged ridge (love everything they make so far) wheels with 33s to start. Not sure about suspension upgrade yet. Wat would you guys do next and in what order? Thanks!
What will you be using the Jeep for mainly? Will it be a trail rig, or a weekend wheeler/daily driver? This is the biggest question that will determine how to build your Jeep.
If you are going to be running trails on the weekends and driving it to work everyday, go with some 35's and a mild 2.5"-3" lift and you will be set. If it will be seeing more street driving than trails, go with some 33's and maybe a 2" budget boost lift kit.
makes some awesome products, from bumpers to wheels, you can't go wrong with them!
If you have any questions about Rugged Ridge or just Jeeps in general send me a PM and I'll help you out!
