A 4" lift will need new driveshafts too eventually. Front usually goes bad first, IIRC. Might want to consider that.

A 4" lift with flat flares will make even 35" tires look too small, IMO. 33s would look absolutely ridiculous.

Also, if it's a daily driver, 35" tires would be my max size, IMO.

So, if you're set on the 4" lift (too much IMO), I'd max out to 35s, skip the flat flares, and--if I only had a few hundred extra--I'd pick up a front driveshaft. An AEV ProCal too.

You'll want the regear for 35s too, btw.

Personally, I'd go to a 2.5" lift and flat flares for the 35s. Saves money in driveshafts and the lift itself.

That is very subjective depending on who you ask. Superchips does tuning while the procal doesn't. Procal does daytime running lights while Superchips doesn't.

Some seem to think the tuner on the Superchips makes a big difference in how the Jeep runs. Some don't notice very much at all other then the crawl tune does have a big difference. Superchips is about twice as much as Procal but has a nice interface while Procal has to be set with dip switches.

It really is a tough call. For the most part they do the same thing but the Superchips tuning is the big difference. It also has some features for the Auto that can be helpful in shift points. I have Superchips and the biggest difference I noticed was it increased my gas mileage by about 1.5 mpg so it will help offset the price eventually.

So if tuning is important then get Superchips. If not then get Procal.

33" tires - just trim your stock fenders

35" tires - 2 1/2" lift leave your stock flares alone

37" tires - 2 1/2" lift trim your stock flares and trim your pinch seams more

40" tires - 3 1/2" lift trim your stock flares and trim your pinch seams more

42" tires - 3 1/2" lift trim your stock flares and trim your pinch seams more

44" tires - 3 1/2" lift trim your stock flares and bump stop the piss out of it

All the others you'll wanna add bump stops to stop your tires from stuffing to far and getting torn up.

If you don't believe what I wrote..I've got friends that have done just that above. And they wheel just fine out on the trail's.

I personally have the 40" tires and only 3.5" of lift. LIFT smart, not with your pocket book. regear as needed depending on if you have a standard or automatic makes a difference when gearing.
