Looking to lift
Hey everyone, I am new to this forum and just got out of the J spec cars and into American 4x4's! I purchased my 02 last month and want to add a 4-6" lift, but am not sure what is the best way to go. I know I want to put 33/13.50" LTB's with 16x10 wheels.
I guess my question is, what is the best lift for the money and what mods would I have to do to fit the rubber I want?

welcome. Lots of different options to fit 33's under a jeep. From basic to sky's the limit. What kind of budget are you working with? What do you plan to use the jeep for?

yah dirk from dpg will help you out tremendously..

but as for 4-6'' of lift, you really dont need that much for 33s

i run 2'' front coils, jks acos set at 1.25'' at all 4 corners and a 1.25'' bodylift and my jeep sits perfectly for 33s.. no rubbing at all.. so about 3-3.5'' works great for 33s.. nowadays its not all about height.. people are trying for a LOW CENTER OF GRAVITY..

as for 16x10'' rims.. id recommend either a 15x8 or a 16x8.. i would not run a 10'' rim because it pushes the sidewalls out on the tires.. the main concern for a wider tire is not the rim width but the backspacing of the rim.. i run 33x12.5s on a 3.25'' backspaced rim
