Hi I am just baught my first jeep though I havent picked it up yet but already have a few questions .
its a 97 wrangler sport 4.0 l soft top that I purchased from my nephew for 4500. Everything is stock on it since he isnt mechanically inclined enough to do much more than check the oil and tire pressure. My sister bought it new and so I know everything that happened to it. Its never been off road and lucky if its seen more that 500 miles of gravel in its life. But thats about to change ...
here is the mods I would like to do. arb bull bar with 8k winch, garvin wilderness rear bumper with tire rack, lift kit. and possible wilderness/safari rack for trips. but it also has to be my daily driver also for 60 miles daily commute to /from jackson wyoming. I like the asthetics of the arb bumper only wish that it had cut outs for driving light in it like it has on the liberty bull bars.
anyways onto the questions.
would the weight of the bull bar/winch and the rear bumper set up counter act each other for a level lift? how much taller are the 31 1050s than the stock wheels tire combo? how much do you think that the rack/ bumpers/ winch combo will squat the tj? I am going to use the bfg at tires since I will be using it as a dd. in snow all winter long. should I go with a 3 or 4 inch lift to gain the extra height and to compensate for bumper weights?
Any input would be great
