I have the jack that came with the Jeep, but i doubt that is what i need. I may have to buy a jack. I'm sure i have everything else. My main concern was that i thought that since we are talking about a body lift that you would actually have to support the vehicle by the frame and i just didnt see how that could be done with a jack.

|KaiserJeep||YES you can run stock tires with a lift, without doing anything except tolerate wisecracks about "weenie tires". Get some stock Jeep tires on Jeep steelies from a tire shop, or better yet Craigs List.|

And do you have a 10-20 ton jack and jack stands and basic hand tools? If so, you can do take any body lift (if there is one) off and, if you want too, swap out springs, shocks, and other stuff that may need replacing/adjusting with a friend in a weekend. Just read up on it. There's threads out there.

|Neil F.||Doing 500 mi a month, 6 months out of tires so you are only getting 3k out of tires? Something is seriously wrong then.|

|jeepwayoflife||Yeah you definitely want to remove that 3" body lift. For 33's, a 3.5" or 4" suspension lift would be perfect. Check out my pics on my profile. I have 33's with a 3.5" Rubicon express lift kit.|

question about running a lift on stock tires
Hey right now I have a 2004 Wrangler with 6" suspension lift, 3" body lift, and 35x12.5" tires. The problem is i drive 500 miles a month on the highway and the 35's are not only killing me on gas but they get worn way too quickly. I am thinking about investing in good highway tires that will be 30x9.5" to save me on gas and to save the tread on my off-road tires. That way i am not spending $1200 on tires every 6 months. I still plan on using the 35's so i still need the lift. Ideally i would like to remove the 3" body lift and get 33" tires for off-roading because i dont need 35's but I have no idea how to remove the lift and i doubt i even have the right equipment to do it.
Anyway here is my question: does anyone have a picture close to what this will look like?
Here is a pic of my current rig:
