You need to give us a lot more information for us to be able to help you in any way. Tell us what your jeep has (motor/trans/axles etc) and tell us what you would like to be able to do with your jeep that you are currently not able to. A budget would help also.

I have a 1998 TJ and I'm looking to put on it a 2in lift, with some 32in tires. I don't want to go too crazy. I'm also looking to put a winch on it as well.

Not to mention when I bought it I was told it was a 6 and instead it's a 4 cyl. So, with that said...will putting on a 2in lift and bigger tires hinder my performance??

What transmission & gears do you have? (you should fill out your profile, it will help us-help you) as far as the lift and tires, are you gonna be doing alot of off roading, is it your Daily Driver?

I have a 2.25" Budget Boost lift and my tires measure 32x11.50x15, I didn't notice the power loss, but my mpg's went from 19 to 16. I've got the 4.0L, with a 3spd auto and 3.07 gears.

your gears are probably 4.10s

I have a 2002 SE. I just put 31 on it last weekend. Hey for with no lift or anything done to it. I like the 31s I am afraid to go any bigger until I get my D44.
