94 yj lift and gear questions
 
Just bought a 94 yj with 4.0 and manual tranny. I'd like to know what brand
4" lift you guys recommend. And i plan on 33x12.50 tires, What gear ratio are you all using with these.

the lift i would recommend would be Rubicon Express. its a bit pricey as far at YJ lifts go, but its a good one. the 4 inch that came on the jeep i just got is a trailmaster, and i dont even think they make lifts anymore..lol..i dont really care for the lift much bc the leafs are stiff as a brick, but it gets the job done for the most part

gear wise, im running the same size tires you want to, but im not sure what gears are in it since those tires were on it when i got it. but, i wouldnt go with anything smaller then a 4.10 gear, or maybe even a 4.88 gear

I'd rather not buy the top of the line kit. I was really kinda wondering what everyone thought about Black diamond, Rough country, Tuff country, super lift. All the mid range guys. It's just a weekend toy. I'm not trying to build a rock crawler.

even as just a weekend toy, i would still recommend the Rubicon Express kit.

but, i understand completely, and would probably go with a black diamond for my second choice.

The Rubicon is gunna cost ya around a grand and so is the BDS. I was told never to use rough country but I have been getting mixed reviews on them after i got my rubicon. The rough country is gunna run ya around $500 at ur door step.

Orderd a Rubicon Express 4" standerd today. After i got to looking at all the features, it had everything i needed except the pitman arm, which i also ordered.

very sweet. i need to get myself some kind of a limited slip or locker too.

fly's~yj 11-03-2007 11:59 AM

very sweet..congrats..i would be wery of the tru trac in the rear..the stock dana 35 isnt exactly the strongest rear diff, and with 33's you are at the perverbial-"end of your teather" did you opt up for the 30 spline axels? i run a set of 30 spline 'yukon' axels with larger bearings and an arb..and so far so good..
