Why would I talk about an offroad rig in a thread that has nothing to do with that? Use context. I obviously am talking about how I would build a "budget mall crawler for a business" because thats how I summed up what he was asking. It's all my own damn opinion and I am entitled to that. If you have a problem with it, I suggest you get over it. Your never going to be able to change another persons feelings or opinions with your kind of attitude.

And Jerry and rda, I am not trying to insult you in any way. but out of all the people who posted suggestions, three of you decide to try to disprove my sugestion? I am sorry If there is a hole or two in a plan I made up in 3 minutes. It takes alot more thought and effort to plan a good jeep build than that. But obviously this isn't my build so I am not going to put that much effort into it. Its a jeep forum. Seriously...

Ibuildembig, I agree. Get it done the cheap country way

This is the second time I've commented on something you said. Ever notice that people tend to get in arguments with you? I wonder why that is......

Anyways. Good luck. I'm moving on.

I wasn't going to argue anymore either. I am not internet tuff guy.

Hmmm, no I really don't know why you tend to start arguments with me, but I know that there will always be people who try to put you down in life. I just walk right through them. On the other hand, I hardly ever get in arguements with people. I can name a handful of people who like to pick them with me however. I have many friends and acquaintances both on WF and in the rest of my life. 99% of them would probably say I'm an alright guy. We all let our words get out of hand sometimes. But to jump on someone on an internet forum over something like this is just silly and childish. And if you say I am being childish, at least I have an excuse I don't hide my age from anyone, but that doesn't mean I don't know what I am talking about on occasion.

Now I don't want to drag this on and I am willing to be an adult about this. I know you weren't trying to personally tick me off, just point out whatever flaws you saw in my suggestions. Thats perfectly fine, and I agree whole-heartedly with most of it. So there is nothing left to disagree about. It really dissapoints me that a thread like this turns into a debate between other members. I am sorry to both the OP and everyone else involed. Sorry if I offended you in anyways. I'll just mind my own business from now on, and let you pros handle it.

WOW. I have been here for the last 8 months and I am surprised at some people here. I love reading on how to wheel your Jeep and love it. Mine is pretty much a "mall crawler" of a Jeep. Stock suspension with 31" tires. And like you shawlyancey, my Jeep is for cruising with the top down in the summer and snow driving in the winter. But I have no problem taking it out in the farm field or the woods for any reason. From what I have read here, put some 33 inch tires under it and lift it about 3 inches. That will give you a nice look and hopefully make you stand out a bit like you want to on the street. Hope others here will help.

Will

thank you to everybody for the posts. from what i gather, i should start with a better base model such as the rubicon to get some factory upgraded axles and suspension parts, and then either plan on big bucks for 35" tires or choose the simpler and cheaper path with 33" tires. anyway, thank you for all of the GREAT information, and for being patient with my obvious lack of knowledge. i know just enough to be dangerous, so my point in asking the question was to avoid some obvious mistakes. please continue to post any suggestions - thank you!

For a mall crawler with 35's you can keep things pretty basic and cost effective.

Lift: Zone 3" is a great value, rides great, flexes great, not too complicated

Keep the wheels @ 4" back spacing or less.

That being said, if your just wanting it looks good...most people don't know the difference between 33's and 35's...so don't over extend.

I completely agree that with 35's you should upgrade your steering and brakes, especially if you increase your wheel size from 15" (tire and wheel weight goes up quickly and varies drastically by tire/ wheel type and brand) and you will want to change the gearing (if you have 3.73 or 4.10, you can live with it for a while, I am)

With the above lift and 35's on my LJ (all else stock) I have wheeled some pretty great trails @ Rock Run (in Pa) and Rausch Creek (in Pa), now will it land me on the cover of a magazine..NO!....did the tires rub in the fender wells....yes hence the body lift!....am I done building....no way!

i know this is an older thread, but I figured I'd throw my $.02 in...I have a 00 sahara running 35's on a OME 2.5" lift and a 1" body lift and I have no problems with it.
