One of the other Jeepers and I have put together s jeep meet for next weekend. Started as 10. Now has over 60. I met him on here. We've give mudding around town end he's helping me put new shocks and ujoints on my Rubi... All because I asked for help on here.... hope you're having a good evening.
Wow I'm impressed and yes that's exactly what I'm looking for! I just wanna jump right in it and learn as much as possible. I've always been great with hands on learning and teaching myself how to take things apart and put it back together so I think this site will help me get there with a Wrangler. How did you meet the ppl btw? On this type of forum or just on a regular post on the questions forum section?! I'm from Boston but moved to Arizona a year ago so don't know a lot of ppl out here to go ridin with. I'm willing to drive 3 hours way or more just to have a chance to ride with ppl in a convoy for a day or week or whatever. That's the one thing I've always admired about Jeeps and have been wanting to find ppl like that it here in AZ - any suggestions?! And thank you I hope you have a great night as well.

GHomer8 I was in Tucson the other day actually going through and went a little north into Box Canyon Trail area, it's beautiful down there. Are you part of a Jeep Club in Tucson?

GHomer8 Thank you! Do you have any advice as far as tire and lift sizes? I've looked through a hundred threads but can't find one that solely answered my question. Thanks.

New Jeep Owner

I just recently bought a 99' TJ and within the next year or so am looking into getting it lifted.

For starters, I go off-roading at least once if not 2 or 3 times a week as I currently live in Arizona and where there are plenty of trails to hit just about anywhere you go. With that being said, I've noticed a lot of the trails that I've been going on have been hard for my stock Jeep to get around; with that being said, I'm still extremely impressed with their overall stock capability and strength of the 4.0 I6 engine. I know I'll be having the Jeep for a long time so I want to be sure I don't make any upgrades on it that I'll have to get rid of in the future. I know a vehicle isn't an investment but am willing to put out the extra couple dollars and doing something the right way the first time rather than "making it work for the moment."

My Question: I've been lookin' at tire sizes and lifts and want some good height, 35's seem like a good size on a stock dana30 but I think I want a little bigger - at the same time I realize I'd definitely need new front and rear axles, drive shaft, etc. if I went as big as 40's. What are your opinions for tire sizes and good suspension lift height combinations? I'd like to spend around $5,000 or under if possible but am open to any options as I am trying to figure out what'll work best for the future as I know there's a big difference between a 35" setup and a 40" setup. I also know people who can help me with fabrication of parts but am curious how much it would be for someone else to install it as well.

Thanks in advance.
