That's exactly our methods here. Works out best for all parties involved.

With a 4.25 lift you also need a slip yoke eliminator and a new custom driveshaft.

Higher is NOT better especially with a new driver behind the wheel. Learn how to handle a vehicle before you start lifting it.

It's probably the Zone lift. In which case he'll most likely be fine without an sye/cv.

And not every teenager is a terrible driver. I was driving a jeep by myself when I was 15 (it was legal in Mississippi, I'm 20 now so the law has since changed). Never got in a wreck, nothing bad ever happened. Was I always super cautious? No. But did I know how to control the vehicle?Yes. And I knew my limits. So don't jump all over somebody. He's happy he's getting a lift. He'll be fine.

I thought you had a Yukon to use while the Jeep is getting fixed.

You do not need 4.25 of lift to fit 33" tires.
Overkill and a waste of money.
I don't quite agree with not needing it, when I had 33s with my 4 inch lift there was a few times I wish I would have had a little bit more room for flex

You mean more lift or smaller tires?

You'll be absolutely fine with 4-4.25" of lift and 33's. Thats probably the most common combination for TJ's.

You might have whiplash. Going off of earlier posts.
Do not take personal injuries lightly, they won't go away completely... Trust me on that.
