Currently mine has a 3" lift and needs to be regeared if I am going to keep it at that.
I am curious if it would be cheaper to drop down to the 1" lift and buy smaller tires, or to simply re-gear to fit what my specs are at now.

Here's a picture of my rig- 2" BB with 32" cooper STTs. I added an aftermarket bumper and winch which caused my front end to sag a good bit. I'll be swapping in 3" coils to make up for it.

My son's jeep: 1" body lift, extended flairs, 31x10.5x15 GY Duratracs. I don't think the flairs were necessary but they keep the Jeep a lot cleaner.

|rmiracle||Thanks for the info. I'm glad I asked this question. I was about to drop $900 on a SkyJacker kit and about $1800 on wheels and tires.|

|UnlimitedLJ04||31" tires are a good choice for you. add a 1" BL if you want.|

Kind of a loaded question... First things first you need to figure out what you're going to use your rig for, then you need to determine a budget. Zone offers some good budget" set ups, but there is not a "complete" budget kit.
How high do you want to go? What size tires do you want to run? What do you want to spend? Whats your current gearing? Check the tag on your rear diff. My sport came with 3.73 gearing and when I jump to 33s, I'll be regearing to 4.56.

Welcome to Wrangler Forum, My suggestion is go with Zone spacer lift and use 31's or 32 wheels.
1.75" Coil Spring Spacer System J1
Or go with the BDS 2" lift with shocks and springs

I chose BDS over Zone because BDS gives you a lifetime warranty with no questions asked.

Lift questions and tire questions.
I just bought a stock 02' Wrangler Sport. What type of lift and what size tires can I put on it without having to regear it? It is my daily driver, and I will be driving it out to San Diego from Tennessee in April when I get stationed out there. I just want it to look mean and have a wider stance. It will see some off-road use on the dunes. With so many options out there, it can get confusing for a new Jeep owner.
