What have I gotten myself into?
OK, this is my first Jeep, so be easy. Retired LEO, figured I needed a toy. A friend was looking to clean his garage for his new project truck. His 93 YJ, body off, new interior, new top, hard doors, new 4.0 crate motor, Rhino Lined tub, new white paint job and new 31"s and wheels, it followed me home.
Now it starts. The suspension has 164,000 on it and of course the springs are flat as a dead mackeral. I doubt that I'll be doing any climbing of hills the likes of Kilimanjaro, so as a weekend and sometime beach driver, I have one and a half questions. Will I be OK putting the suspension back together as stock (for ride purposes?) and not find a problem with the 31"s, or just go to one of any of the sixty or so best loved 2.5" kits?
I've noticed from the forum concerning suspension lifts, whatever the owner of the vehicle put on for a suspension, yep, it's the best one ever made.
For light use and not having to consider a small business loan, I'm somewhere between the RC and OME kits. However, the OME kit will require the trade of my first born male child. Not a bad idea at that.
Thanks for reading this epistle.
