I'm sure all of you are fed up with the question, and PETA sure as hell won't appreciate me beating a dead horse, but I was pretty hard pressed to find definitive answers after searching the forums.
I've got an '05 LJ, basically stock. The time has come to throw down some cash for new tires, as the old ones are becoming quite bald. That being said, I'd like to throw on some decent sized tires..probably 33". I figured while I'm at it, I will lift it up a bit, too.
I've been off road only a handful of times, partly because there's not many places to go in my neck of the woods, and partly because the few spots I CAN go, I don't really want to with my balding tires. So yeah, when I do lift it and throw some bigger tires on, I will probably be more tempted to venture off the beaten path a bit, but nothing serious. Mud..light trails, dried up river beds..that sort of thing. I'm not going to be doing any serious rock crawling or anything.
I'm looking to get between 3-4" and preferably a kit that includes EVERYTHING..I'm new to this, and if everything is there for me there will probably
be less of a chance that I will screw it up.
I read up on here, and it seems a lot of people are knocking on the cheaper end lift kits (skyjacker, I've noticed a lot) and it seems for every 2 people trashing them, there's at least 1 person defending them..so it makes deciding really hard.
So keeping in mind that I will spend at least 80% of the time ON ROAD, what would you recommend for a lift? As far as the ride goes..I really don't mind how rough it is, as long as it's not damaging to the Jeep in any way..it wasn't built for comfort and I'm not going to try to change her mind.
Anyway, I'd appreciate any help I can get
