a lift is easy to do yourself.

regearing should be done by a professional that does this all the time, unless you want to take a pretty detailed lesson in gear setup and buy a whole variety of tools you'll never use again.

IMO some people are "all right" with stock gearing and some people have issues. I feel some of it is where a person lives. And also how some people drive...for me 90% of the time my stock 3.73s with 33"s and a five speed is fine.

It has changed a little of how I drive...I can no longer loaf around town in 5th and just accelerate when I need to speed up. I spend most of my time in 4th now. I also need 1st gear now...whereas before I did not.

IMO get about 50-75% of your lift in the suspension and not just blocks or pucks and get the rest in BL and MML...I think you will be surprised how civil a lifted Jeep can be if done right!!

then you'll want bigger tires witch you will need new rims with the proper back spacing then being you got a se the 4banger wont like the new tires so got to regear to 4.88's or 4.56's

Wanting to install a 4" lift to my TJ

Hey, I'm new to the community, never understood Jeeps until my buddy took me out in a Rubicon last year and we did some crazy trails in , AZ. After that, I had to get myself a Jeep.
I couldn't afford a Rubicon or anything special, I got a stock 2006 SE. But I want to put a lift on it, preferably a 4". But I'd love some input on what all I need to get and some ideas on and ease of doing all the installation myself.
I've been browsing already, I love how helpful and informative everything on this sight is. I'm interested in whatever input you got.
Thanks!
