lookin for lift kit, tires, and rims

im looking to get a lift kit budget wise between 1500-2500$. and i wanted a set of Goodyear Wrangler MT/R's with kevlar for tires. id love input on that option and a suggestion for lifts and rims! the jeep is stock right now with a bit of wear. so if there are any parts that i should be looking to replace or strengthen along with what ever kit i put on so i dont break anything, id appreciate it. thanks!!

$2500 will buy you quality lift components. Keep in mind that this project will require additional mods that may have an aggregate cost that exceeds that of the lift. What are the specs on your rig? What is your intended purpose for the vehicle? Sye/DC shaft, new rear axle, regear, lockers...may also be additional upgrades.

ok so then my answer would be im such a noob im having trouble giving you your answer of what my specs are here goes my best effort.
my purpose is to not let anything stand in my way. and to acquire high quality parts at a good price that will last me a long time. crawling, daily driving, and road trips. everything on the vehicle so far is stock on a 97 TJ, if that helps. so im willing to replace any and all parts to make this thing strong and last. i really like the tires i chose out so anything that would fit around 33'' would be fine. 3-4'' lift is what im hearing would be best with other things replaced to stabilize? does that help?

Look into the DPG Ultimate Kit. Great stuff and will allow you to run 33's for about $1500 shipped to your door.

Take a look at what savvy off road offers. I run their control arms, BDS coils, and bilstein shocks on my rig and its a solid combo. Take a look at your rear axle and figure out if its a Dana 35 or 44. You can find pics of each online. A Dana 44 will significantly reduce your aggregate project cost.

i have the stock dana 35, and soon as im ready to move up in the world ill go ahead and snag a 44 somehow and go from there. i have the time and funds later on to do all of that, but hey, part of the fun is doing it in pieces and giving yourself something to do
