Hey all, lately I have been in the market for modifying my tj. Lift,wheels, tires what not, Now I'm no mechanic but I'm competent with tools and I don't want to take it to a shop to get it done I want to learn and help with the installation or at least be instructed on proper installation so everything goes smoothly. I guess what I am asking is when I do pull the trigger if there's anyone willing to help me that'd be awesome. We could work out all the details later.

Hey guys. Just moved to the area with my '03 TJ and wanna lift it up and add tires. Thinking bout a 4" rough country n2.0 lift with 35/12.5 nitto trai grappler mts. If 35s will rub then ill drop to 33s. Anyways. I was wondering if anyone can advise if the off road shop on a Campbell, south of Nixa does good work?? I've talked with them and they said they'll install what I bring them BUT they also kept trying to sell me their 4" susp lift.

Shane the owner of Safari Off Road is a good guy and does quaility work! He will do what you want, but if you tell him what your all gonna use it for he will try and direct you to the correct lift ( maybe thats why he is trying to sell you the one he sells?)......I own/run the closest off road ranch in the area.....thats me posted above your post! I know he has lots of happy customers so i would go with him!! Just my humble opinion! Tell him Brandon from SMORR recomended him and he will take good care of ya!!
Good luck and look forward to seeing you on the trails!!
Also i am pretty sure you can fit 35"s with a 4" lift!! With out stuffing really bad.....but then you need to think about gears probably :-)!!! It never ends lol!!

Thanks for the help jacks. After reading a lot on this site, I've decided to just go with 33s for now. The lift, tires, and wheels r move in my budget, especially what I've read u have to add when u run 35s
Thanks for the tip about safari offroad. Hopefully the tax return is what I think it's gonna b and then I can finally do the mods I want. It's been a long time coming.
This summer I'm def checking out ur ranch. Thanks

I am a TJ owner in Nixa and have used the guys at Safari for several items, tires, gears, lockers, etc. They are very competitive and do quality work. I don't think you'd go wrong if you work with them.

Also, as it relates to the 35's with a 4" lift, that is what I run. I do rub on the flares when I'm really articulated but for most driving they work fine. I did change to 4.56 gears.

Got my zone 3" lift on monday waiting for time to install it. The guys were nice at safari and well knowledgeable but too expensive for me I'm gonna try and do it myself for the prices I got quoted. I did the body lift and mml myself I think the lift ought to be easy enough as well. Ill keep posting on here if when I do it anyone wants to come by and help or look ill be headin out to SMORR as soon as she's taller and got new shoes! Thinking about 33s duratrac or bfg at.
