My new jeep... 2008 jeep wrangler x
it's my first jeep and i'm really happy with it. I can't wait to start with the mods. (that is my sexy wife in it)

here's a few questions.
1) how much lift is needed for 33" tires
2) how many inches of lift do driveshafts/gear ratio become a problem.

i'm hoping to lift it 2 inches and put 33" tires on it. i can't go much bigger because it is the wife's jeep and she don't want it to big but she is letting me do a little.

1: 2" will be fine for 33's... I donno what kind of off-roading you do, but it will be fine on road.

2: lift has no relation to gearing, just tire size, and I'm guessing you have 3.73 gears? 33" tires should be fine.
