Just so you know...I saved the image, blew it up and it is now taped to the wall in my bedroom.

Ive been rethinking my strategies anyway, might have to change my gameplan. I'll explain some other time.

Don't be scared. If this is what you are into, be cool. Take a step back and think out what you are doing. Write out a list of what you want to do in list form.

What Do I Want To Do With My Jeep...

How Much Do I Have To Spend On This...

Tire Size...

Need Lift, What Kind, How Tall, Long Arm, Short Arm...

What Else Are You Going To Add To The Jeep...(bumpers, spare tire and rim, winch, Hi-Lift jack, camping gear, extra parts and tools)

I do not want to scare you but a rule of thumb is (when you start to change things, things will change and need modification as well) That's were the addiction comes from.

It is not a bad thing due to the fact that you are making a perfect off-road vehicle, more versatile. In the aspect of which the vehicle is intended.(trail rated

Run with it. I think you will like it in the end. Make the list and think about what you want to do than get back with us. Make a list and get back with us........

You guys are correct about 33's. My 99 had a 4" suspension and 33's and was very capable. A jeep with 33's can go most of the places mine will with 35's, but they are more susceptible to bent tie rods, dented diff covers, swiss cheese rocker panels, worse approach/departure angles, etc. Bigger is better, but definitely costs more. The bigger the tire, the smaller the rocks, right?

I recommend 4" with 33's for the budget minded Jeeper that wants a happy medium setup that isn't a pain to convince a date to climb into. They always ask, "How do I get in?" That's my strategy though. No fat chicks.
