Just a little about the jeep and it's uses. It's a 98 sahara all stock right now I just bought it. It's my first TJ as I have always had cj's and yj's. It will be a DD with occasional rock's on the weekends. Eventually it will be just a toy. I need something that will drive good probably farthest we will drive is 60 miles or so. I have already bought black rock 952's 15x10 and 33-12.50-15 Goodyear duratracs. These are the lift I am looking at and if you have other opinions please tell me. Looking to stay around a 1000$ or less.
Rough country x series 4"
Zone 4" will buy track bar and sway bar discos
you can air down more on a 15x8 without popping a bead on the tire...15x10s will be fine as long as you down air down too much...15x8 will be better once you make it a toy..the 15x10s will stick out more

Honestly save your money and go with a good long arm lift using your stock coils. For about $2000 you will be alot happier in the end. If you plan on crawling you will eventually go LA anyhow. I dont recommend rough country but they do have the LA upgrade for $900.
I'm really liking that zone 4" kit, with track bar steering stabilizer and quick discos its like 900$. At the same time I have heard a lot of good things on the zone 3" just don't know if that's enough or if it will flex well enough on the rocks
Rokmen runs 2.5" ome springs on a lj with 40" tires and their fenders.
Just keep in mind if you plan on wheelin this thing go with quality . With a 4" plan on a sye kit and cv drive shaft as well. That's about another five hundred to the bill right there. I would buy a set of ome 2.5" springs and a 1" bl . Then save for some better control arms and skid plates.
Get the shortest most complete lift you need to run the biggest tires you plan to have. x2 on the SYE stuff from above. As for rim size. 15x10 vs. 15x8, there is not that big of a difference, in fact in some cases the wide rim does not have to be aired down as much as you get a wider contact patch to begin with. I never had an issues with either one. As for which kit, I have heard good things about zone products.

Right just control arms. If you are only running 33's you dont need to waste money on coils unless yours are bad for some reason. There are guys running 37's on stock coils, of coarse there are mods to consider for doing that. Remember this when building your Jeep are you water fording and mudding or mostly going for terrain/rocks. Because the main concern for off roading is your center of gravity. The only reason you need height is to keep your self from getting wet really.
I have a 1997 Wrangler TJ with a 1 inch body lift and currently running 265’s on 16 inch wheels. Adding a budget suspension lift and planning to get new 15 inch wheels. What size tire can I run? I was originally looking to go with 285 75 R 16 but will need wheel spacers. Getting new wheels will solve this which is why looking to go with the 15 inch wheels. Problem – 285’s generally are not available with the 15 inch wheel. Can I fit 33’s with the budget suspension lift (2 inch) and the 1 inch body lift?
