what type lift

hey jeepsters, have a 2000 sahara stock jeep, want to go with 32 or 33 inch tires. should i go with budget boost, or body lift or what. i do not do extreme 4 x 4ing just joy riding, want it to look sharp without messing my ride up. what size rims? What is a good brand lift?

A real good place to start is how much money do you want to spend, how high do you want to go, do you want 32 inch tires or the 33 inch tires, do you want to go cheap or quality, and the list goes on. You can do the inexpensive BB and put in a small body lift which will let you get away with 33 inch tires since you do not do anything extreme. There are all kinds of reviews and threads on this forum that you can search and do your homework. Any time you lift the suspension, you may have to address drive line issues but you can get all that information off of this forum as well. If you want to run 33 inch tires you should get rims 8 inches wide with a back spacing of 3.75 to 4 inches.

2.5" lift + 1" BL+ 1" MML + 1" bumpstop extensions will fit 33s nicely. its a good starting point, and won't screw up your ride.

I run a 2.5" Old Man Emu kit, 1.25" JKS Body Lift & 1" Currie Motor Mount Lift. works nicely with 33's.
