Im new to the jeep scene and bout a completely stock 2003 jeep wrangler sport 4.0 the only thing added was the whole inside is rhino lined. i have about 5 grand to spend so any ideas on lifts tires ext would be awesome.!
Being new save your money and research for a while. Look here and at other Jeeps then decide what you want or need. In the end you will be happier and won't have to redo mistakes you made because you listened to someone else.
Maybe buy a few small items like a spiderweb shade etc... But lifts, wheels, tires are a long term commitment!
What lift/ tires would you suggest I like the look of 33x12.50 with a 4 inch lift
That's what I have. I have Old Man Emu but be prepared to spend a lot of you budget there. I also like rubicon Express they are priced pretty good. I personally would avoid rough county, super lift, pro comp and skyjacker but that me..to much negative on hem bu others love them!
Ya I'm not in a big rush and I know everyone has their opinions on what lift is the best and I am trying to avoid the cheaper lifts. I'd rather spend the money to do it right then just for instant gratification
also am i better off installing it myself i don't have much mechanic skills but i do have a few buddies that have been doing lifts and such i just want it done right but also want some hands on experience. how hard of a project is it for a beginner
What others are trying to tell you here is in your best interest. You can't just slap 4" of lift and 33X12.5s on and be on your way. A lift that size is going to require more modifications than just the lift itself. Going from a 9 or 10.5 to a 12.5 tire is also qoing to require more than just changing your tires and wheels. Do yourself a favor and listen to these guys. Once you decide what you want to go with, we will be happy to help you out in any way we can. This forum has a great lift review thread that tells you everything you need to know.
well personally, spicing up the looks of your TJ for under $30 or so is easy with a few cans of spray paint, some time, and a lot of newspaper. I've painted my fender flares, the wheels, tinted the tail lights and turn signals, repainted the bumper, and blacked out the front grille
06 Rubi with some sort of double ended, chrome knobbed, cross threaded, infinitely adjustable, frequently breakable, worn out flammywhammers zip tied onto it.
It used to be a jeep thing... til that sh!t broke!
