If you don't have any current issues with tires rubbing and are looking for more flex have you considered a 1" BL and MML with either a homemade or aftermarket set of swaybar disconnects? This would be a much more cost effective route.

|kjeeper10||Not the best way to go about it but doesn't the early Tj's have cam bolts for caster ?|
|07-02-2013 11:33 AM|
What are you running for control arms, track bars, and sway bar set up with that combo?

|JakeBreen||And the reason why I'm going to keep the pucks is because they were givin' to me. And a two-inch coil is cheaper then a 4 inch. Just kind of low on $$$$ right now.|

|JakeBreen||I think you won the First place flex award!!!|
|07-02-2013 12:45 AM|
I know my front fenders are mangled. I plan on getting tubes put on soon so no damns were given
Pictures may not do it justice, but it wraps around terrain pretty darn good for a few budget parts thrown together I think. I can't knock you for wanting the 33's though. I am currently planning to go that route as well with a downsize to 4" of suspension.
|07-02-2013 12:13 AM|
Why not just do a 4" coil vs pucks and coils? My 33s rubbed with a two inch puck lift on road. I run the zone 4.5 combo and love it.
Water Dog what tube doors are those? I like them.

|JakeBreen||Well, it's just that i'm not looking for a full offroad vehicle. I want something as a everyday driver and something I can hill clim amd hit a(n) occasional mud pit with. Although, I do appreciate everyones thoughts. And you didn't offend, i'm the biggest smart ellik around haha|

|JakeBreen||Don't gotta be a S.A. with the roll eyes lol. I dig the jeep man. Mines all in process. Just bought alloy honey comb wheels. Now just need the 33's and the coil|
|07-01-2013 10:06 PM|
Sounds like you made up your mind..
32.5" and 4"....
|07-01-2013 10:03 PM|
|JakeBreen||Well... I would go to 35's. reason I don't. I live in the heart/very center of wv. So I do more hill climbing then hitting mudholes. But the two reasons why i'm not getting 35's? Because I need more flex, and I have the legendary 2.5L 4-banger!!!|

|Cape Fear Finn||Not at all. 4" and 33s go together like peas and carrots.|
|07-01-2013 09:46 PM|
|JakeBreen||Will a 4-inch and 33's look stupid? Too much gap maybe?|
|07-01-2013 09:37 PM|
4" and 33's would be more appropriate if you want to get the full potential out of your parts. 33's are going to eat fenders on a 2.5" lift.
The info is right as far as the driveline goes. If your going 4 or more you definitely need to factor in what you are going to use to correct your pinion angle in the rear and Correct steering as well. Track bar for the rear will also need to be addressed.

|JakeBreen||I'm just going to have 2 inch spacers and 2 inch coil with 33's. i will drop the transfer case. I should be fine after i get in alligned after all the mods.|

Point of longer shocks is to maximize suspension travel as long as there's no other limiting factors.
|07-01-2013 09:14 PM|
|JakeBreen||1-3 inch lift. But jeep grand cherokee had 6 inch with 1-3 inch shock|
|07-01-2013 09:09 PM|
With the spacers ?
2"-2.5" is perfect for a 33" on a Tj. Do you know what the extended/collapsed lengths of your shocks are ?
You will lose articulation going higher with shocks that are too short.
|07-01-2013 08:52 PM|
|JakeBreen||I'm going to get the coils. I have slyjacker aftermarket shocks. What all would i have to do? Im just going to stick 33's on there.|
|07-01-2013 08:44 PM|
Coils usually give more then advertised. All in all your looking at 4-5" of lift.
Steering/caster/pinion angles will all be screwed up if not set up correctly. control arms, TC drop or SYE/drive shaft(s) etc.
Do a small body lift along with the spacers. This will keep your driveline in check but give you more height for bigger meats. Remember ..... It's not the lift that gives you ground clearance at the diffs...., its the tires.
