Need opinions for my TJ

Okay I've got a 98 TJ. I've finally saved enough money to hopefully buy me a lift kit. My jeep doesn't go off the road too much except the cornfield across the street. I'm mostly just going for the jeep look. I know to stay away from rough county and a few others. I'm thinking about super lift? Some one told me to research procomp lifts? What are some opinions. I'm hoping to go up 4inches. (trying to stay around $1,000)

Also another question about my wheels-
I current run 30.5s on 15x8.
I want to buy new cragar soft 8s 15x10.
Will my current tires fit on the new cragars? (I know it may look goofy, but I don't wanna get 33s till I need new tires next spring)

If your not doing anything crazy and want to save some cash go for the 4.25 lift kit offer by zone. That should run you around $500-550 depends on what up grades you want. It will do everything you need it for and more. As for the crager wheel I recommend 15x8 wheel. That will be good for your tire size and if you decide to go up in size

What are you specifically looking to gain by going with the 15x10's?

With a 4" lift you will also need a SYE, or slip yoke eleiminator. If you don't know what It is, it basically helps reduce the rear drive shaft angle after a lift kit is installed. I know some lift kits come with them, so it might be something to look for. Without them you would get pretty bad vibrations. You will also need a new rear driveshaft when you get the SYE. This stuff might be like idk $450-$600??? Others will know more, the previous owner put all my parts on. Best of luck!

To be honest I'm not sure what I was looking to gain with 15x10s. I think I was just told to get bigger if I was eventually going get 33s. If I can run 15x8 on 33s tht works too.

Yup, you can, and probably want to.

If you want a better answer. Go look up some lift kits in your price range then come back or search the thread. If your limits $1000 then your lookin pretty damn good.

here is a stock and 4" lifted jeep on a 36" RTI ramp so you can see what a 4" lift looks like and can do. the TJ with the 4" lift has a t-case drop and 33x12.5 BFG A/Ts
