Decisions..Decisions...

Decisions..Decisions... Figured maybe some of yall could help me. So i recently got the mod bug so i crawled up under the jeep which was suppose to have a suspension lift come to find out its a budget boost (i think thats what yall call it). So the first thing i want to do is decide on a lift Rock Krawler TJ 3.5 Entry Level with either Bilstein 5100 shocks the site suggest or Rancho 9000 I hear good reviews about. The other lift option is Zone Offroad 4" TJ Suspension System from reviews I think I may order shocks with those to. Unless yall have something else i might wanna check out. The other decision i need to make is tires when i got the jeep it had Kumho Road Venture MT 31x12.50R15. Im thinking of going up to 33s you know you can never have big enough tires and the thought i had were either Toyo Open Country MTs or Goodyear Wrangler MT/R with the kelvar sides. Unless yall have another good mud tire for me to try. Please dont make me a geniue pig. If yall suggest anything else the likes and dislikes yall have noticed would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. Here is a couple pictures of the jeep so yall know what im working with.

Also if you go 33's and get a full size spare dont cheap out and use the factory carrier. Plan on another 5-700 for a bumper and tire carrier. I just ordered mine for my spare, actually my fiance did for my bday Good luck and as for tires everyone has an opinion but what ive heard is dont get swampers on a dd, i have nitto mudgrapplers and like em but they are a little noisey not that i mind!

Nittos

My dad had the Nittos on his cummins. I know not really a comparision but i went mud riding in it (he would kill me if he knew) and the tires became drag slicks down here in the good ol louisiana mud.

I installed a 4" Zone on my neighbor's TJ last year. Seems to be a good lift for the money.
