If you only want it for looks, and you don't care about flex, off roading, gas milage, or anything else but the looks, you can buy a budget 2in coil spacer with shocks and a 3in body lift and fit 35in tires.

I would never do this to my jeep and never suggest anyone do this if they plan on doing anything other than driving on pavement. If your sure your not going to beat this thing up then your axles will be fine with 35s. If you off road a Jeep with stock axles and 35in tires you will wreck your axles. Just know if you run 35s your jeep will get horrible gas mileage with the stock gears and it will be much slower and your going to hate it.

If you were going to take this jeep off road, I would suggest driving on your current tires until you kill them, by the time there gone you will have enough money saved up to buy a 4in suspension lift and 33in tires and some decent wheels.

Nobody here is going to like it that you take a $15,000 Jeep and do a half assed lift job on it. Your resale value will suck and I think your really missing out on off roading, have you ever gone?

Personaly dude. my grandmother bought me my TJ and i couldent be any more thankful. she bought it for me close to a month ago and i still thank her twice a day for it its an 02 APEX eddition it was lifted with all the other beels and wistles when i got it but personaly i think you should leave it the way it is.. i wish my jeep was stock because it makes it easyer to work on. jeeps are already a deep pocket on gas and if you just want a lift to drive over parking blocks your basicley just lifting it to get yourself a reckless driving ticket. lifting is strictley good for off road use. on road its a pain. it makes the MPG even worse. The thing dances on you more easly than it does stock. lift's are expensive and could make more things prone to breaking if not done right. and you dont want your jee being called (and excuse my language) and abacrombie faggiot jeep) basicley meaning you lifted your jeep to look cool but dont even intend to use if for what its realy ment for. same meaning as a ricer almost. Drive your jeep and have fun with it dont go pushing your limmit's with it because thats how youngster's end up with the rubber off the road. plus jeeps are also very capable vehicals stock.

Not to mention what the guy above me said is right. i have 33's on mine with a 5 speed and my jeep struggels to hold 75MPH in 4th gear i rareley ever see 5th.

The little loss of power doesnt bug me because if i want to overtake, or accelerate quickly, i just run it on a lower gear.

On average regearing would cost 500 an axle and you DO need both unless you never shift to 4 wd again.
correct me if im wrong here but dont you have to re-gear both axles regardless of whether you plan on using 4wd?

i didnt realize how old this thread was until after i made that post. so the reason that one axle being geared different then the other wont work is because one axle will be turning at a faster or slower speed right? even though 4wd isnt engaged the front wheels are still turning which means that the gears are still moving right? ive learned quite a bit in the short time ive been a member.

I just installed the rough country 3.25" lift (That lift is the 2.5" progressive coil lift and a .75" spacer lift). The lift cost me $175 off craigslist but off rough country its around $380. Ive got 31" BFG A/T tires and I think it looks great. I would recommend a decent lift when you do it just so you dont look back and regret your decision later.

So you say your savings bonds because you bought all of them right? Savings bonds are other peoples money given to you. I hope you understand that.
