Preparing For The Next Round Of Expenses.........

I purchased the new black Soft 8's and I have them installed on my 30's. When Iam finacially ready I want to install 32" BFG's, so I have the tires figured out, but I need some advice on:

Which 2" BB? Iam asking where is the best place to buy the spacers?

Do I need new shocks too? If I do, what kind, where should I get them?

Is there anything else that I need to prepare to get the 32's to fit?

Iam on the right page, right? If I do the above the 32" tires will fit under my '02 TJ Sport without any problems?

Thanks, Scooby

if your getting a bb.. RE offers a 2.25'' bb with new shocks.. i'd get the one with RE monotubes..

you shouldn't have any rubbing issues.. people use a 1.25'' jks bl with their RE bb to fit 33s

really the only thing i would do with 2'' of lift is add some discos in the front and maybe some rear adjustable swaybar endlinks

Do you have a link(s) with the best price? And a link(s) that reference all of the parts you referred to? I understand the RE (Rubicon Express) parts, but I do not know where to look for the discos in the front and the rear adjustable swaybar endlinks. I checked on RE's site, but they only refer to a TJ/LJ 2" SPACER KIT W/MONOTUBE, not a 2.25". Thanks, Scooby

Actually Skjacker makes a good BB. I had this kit for almost a year and it was great.

Just go for 33's. I have 32's with 2" BB 1.25 BL and wish I went for 33's the first time. I even had 36X12.50 and they fit. (just wouldn't go over any bumps with it). Youll regret buying 32's. Thats my 2 cent.

i went with jks products on my jeep besides my 2'' procomp kit..

actually i spent like 1200 on jks parts =/ lol

i was going to get teraflex discos, but then people talked about them and similar discos making noise eventually.. people told me to go with jks and im happy i did.. they were easy to put on and easy to use..

jksmfg.com is their site. the rear endlinks cost me 50 on ebay, and the fronts run 130

As simple as it is, and it can be done pretty cheep. I recommend the 32's with no added bumpstops and a 1" body lift. It flexes really good.

The green jeep is a 1998 wrangler with a skyjacker 2" BB, I left out the bumpstop extensions and put a body lift on it. The tires stuff perfectly and dont smash the fenders. 33's with this combo will need the bumpstop extensions, and the wheel well clearance will look kinda small IMO






32" tires, 2" BB with a 1" BL and NO bumpstop extensions...The tires do not rub!


RE 4.5 SF kit with 3.5 springs and 33" tires no body lift


4" I dont even know what kind of lift, 33's and no body lift

hmm true, if you're not so much worried about gas mileage or acceleration, then i would go with a 2"BB and a 1" bodly lift and 33's but if you have the 4 cyl and you have the auto this option is out, and maybe even if you have the 4cyl. manual

I kinda want 33's too.. i definitely want the bigger tires but then highway power gets even worse...may stick with 32's again. not to mention i have a dana 35...
