What should i do to start my '97 4.0l TJ build prohect?

Hey guys! This is my first time on this forum! I am building up a 1997 Jeep wrangler 4.0 liter 6 cylinder, and it's bone stock! What are the best mods I can do to to the wheels/suspension? I have money, and I don't need to drive it daily! I plan on driving trails and mudding. Any information and likes would be great! I want to go 33 inch mud terrains. Or 31s. Let me know! Thank you!

If you're daily driving and just going to do light trailing and whatnot, all you need is all-terrains. Cheaper, better riding, more quiet, and the wear slower. I'm just giving my opinion though, ultimately it's your Jeep so do what you think is best! Welcome to the forum by the way!

Yea! I agree. I am thinking of maybe some disconnects and 31" MUDs or A/Ts!

31's would be great! You'll be surprised to see what the things can do on stock suspension!

Do you suggest disconnects? Or anything else? And what do you think about deep dish steelies?

The only benefit in disconnects I see is saving about 3 minutes. I just unbolt my links and bungie-cord them to my bumper, so not really worth the money to me. I like the stance I have with the deep dish, but unit bearings hate it. It's worth it in my opinion though for the wide stance.

Don't forget that this is a Jeep, probably the easiest vehicle in the world to modify, you can get all kinds of creative!

Yea! I'm liking the steelies due to the width. They always look good! Do you have any goo websites for jeep parts or rims? If so, send em my way!

If you were going to do that, only lock the front-end, that doesn't effect daily driving. An aussie in the rear can be difficult to control in turns and will eat tires. Plus D30's hate any extra stress. Some good Jeep sites are Rugged Ridge, Morris4x4, Quadratec...there's a ton out there. Just base off of what gives the best deals.
