Only JKU and the old postal jeeps (DJs, which aren't wranglers) came in 2wd.

My "smart car" jeep is a stock LJ. Probably the smartest of all car purchases if that's what you mean.

Sarcasm is a lost art, I'm sorry if I offended you.

No I'm a smartass every day, there's just a time and a place for it. And excuse me for not understanding why a stock LJ is the smartest purchase. Stock jeeps are hard to look at, especially with that long ass body.

It's a Superlift, don't remember exactly which lift because it's been a few years.

ended up keeping it, repainted the ole fenders, going to paint the hard top, and take off the body lift and 2 inch suspension and put on a 6incher suspension

Just curious..why have you decided on a "6" spring kit" instead of a 4" with 1.25" BL?

Not sure of what I want to get/ what I need to fit my 35s. Tryin to do my research an stay within price range. My body lift now shows a lot of undercarriage and it's a turn off for me. Will 1.25 bl have same effect?

A 1-1.25" BL won't be as noticeable as what you have and works nicely in conjunction with a 4" springs. Then you should be able to clear your 35's.

Any suggestions on good, affordable 4"inch

1.25'' will not have anywhere near the same effect as the 3''. It probably won't even be noticeable.... But it will give you just as much clearance (4'' suspension and 1.25'' body) as the 6'' suspension (because the 6" coils will settle pretty good), and not cost you near as much. If funds are an issue, saving a couple hundred bucks is always a plus.

ProComp is always a good choice, as is Rubicon Express...

I'm running a 6" ProComp Suspension, and a 1.25" Body. The 1.25 was added about 6 months after I did the initial lift because the springs settled so much and I wanted more clearance for my 35" km2's. I wish I would have just done the 4" & 1.25" to begin with. Would have saved a lot of time and money.
