What is your budget? After all it all comes down to money.

Also what are your plans for the vehicle's use? Daily driver, weekend toy, or just toy?

If you plan to use if for offroad use...what type of offroading? Rocks, mud, sand, light trails, hard trails?

6" long arm and 37s sounds good to me.

but do you have a budget?

Smile Bigger is always better

Everyone told me when I was putting a two inch lift on my jeep that as soon as I got it on I was going to want it bigger. They were right! But like one post said it all comes down to money. Tight budgeted, go with a four incher, got a little extra go ahead and get the six inch long arm. The six inch long arm rides a little better I hear. Good luck with your build!

With an Unlimited, you have a D44 in the rear... so tire size shouldn't be much of an issue.

3" lift with 32's or 4" lift with 33's... it's up to you and how much you want to spend.

Depends as everyone has said, on budget and plans for the Jeep. Let us know and you'll get a better answer.

I did a 2" spring lift with 32s on my 06 LJ, and I regret not going a little taller. If I could do it again, I would spend just a couple hundred more and get the Full Traction 3" economy kit and JKS 1.25 BL/MML and run 33s. The LJ just needs at least 33s IMO, and 35s are better.

Soon I'll be putting on a BL, front spacers, and flat fenders and when I need tires I'll up to 33s.
