Dont mean to be asking so many questions but its our first wrangler and we need input/advice from those that have had them for a while. We want to put a 2.5 to 3" suspension lift...any suggestions? Wheels we want black and tires 33s. I want to beef it up (yes im a girl). Husband has his toy, 1993 Ford F150 on 2.5 ton axles with tractor tires with a huge motor, so the Jeep is mine. No mud playing in mine tho. ;-).
What part of Tx are you in? If your not near the gulf, then paint would be the way to go. If you're close to the gulf, I'd go the stainless steel route.
Black should look ok, IMO anyway.
For 33" tires, you'll need about 4" of lift. But you don't need that much for a competent wheeler.
