Putting 33" tires on my Jeep

This is my second wrangler, unfortunately I rolled the first. The first I purchased already had a 3 inch lift and 33" tires, so I'm not quite sure all that I need to complete the installation. I want to run 33" tires and a 4 inch Skyjacker kit. Let me know if you have any thoughts.

skyjacker is overpriced for its quality, go with OME or rubicon express

Skyjacker is a little high but as far as quality I have had no trouble with sagging yet.Some people say it is too stiff but I am only running the SJ springs.I have OME shocks but after running the OME shocks and reading more and more about it I would say go for the OME springs as well.They are doing the OME939 4" front springs now and the OME946 4" rears here is a link http://www.ok4wd.com/index.php/catal..._coil_springs/

Is there a certain lift that is better to use when your only going to be doing city commuting and very light trails?

for 33s.. check into a Rubicon express 2'' budget boost with monotube shocks.. you will also need a 1'' body lift.. i prefer jks's 1.25'' bl with 1'' mml..

Rusty's offroad has a 3" that is nice and priced right. For a few $$$ more yoy can get some nice lower control arms. I use them on my TJ and find them to be strudy and flex well.
