First time jeep owner

E just bought our first jeep. 2003 sport with 4" procomp and 2" body lift. 52,000 miles on it, and only 8,000 on the lift and tires. Think I'm going to put 35's on rather than keeping the 37's. And move from 22" rims down to 20's or maybe even 18's. But she is super clean and has been garage kept for the past ten years.

Never, ever go down in tire size. Always up.

Good looking Jeep. Can't beat a TJ.

except for when it is a TJ with stock axles on 37's with the most god awful 22's

put some 34-35's on it and have fun! rubber band tires are for trucks that dont leave the pavement!

I bet you could easily get $2000 from some bro for those.

only problem I see is that 6" of total lift is a bit much. I'd say remove the body lift, but they arent really a bad idea in a TJ so I'm not sure

My plan is to get the gears done, then move down to 35's. I have a guy offering me 2000 for the set, but if I separate the package I may get more. So hopefully I can get rid of them for the same price the new set is going to cost.

$2k will be plenty to get you a good set of 15's and 35's. you should probably have $300-400 left over

I repeat myself. Never, ever go down in tire size. Always up. You will eventually regear your TJ.

that is the most moronic advice I have ever heard. he is on 37's with a dana 30 in the front and a dana 35 in the rear, what part of that makes any sense?

Bought. 2004 wrangler with 37" tires. Have no idea what's been modified. 4.0 5 speed. Does pretty good for what I have used it for. Eventually will make crawler out of it. http://www.wranglerforum.com/attachm...1&d=1386389949
