New to me TJ w/pics!...and some questions
 
Hey everybody, I recently sold my car and bought a 2000 Jeep Wrangler Sport 5spd and D44 with 133,000 miles and made a nice profit. I really like it and have many plans for it. Everything seems to work fine mechanically except for a few squeaks and whatnot but I'm not too worried about that. Still haven't had it checked out by a mechanic yet, but I'm going to very soon. Air comes through the vents but the blower rarely works at all (not even on high). Switch maybe? I've been lurking the forums for a while and doing some research also. Right now I have a 2" BB w/ 31x10.5r15. I plan on upgrading to a 3" or 2.5" SL soon. I want to run 33x12.5 tires with that setup. I know I'm going to need a little more than 2.5" to run 33's without rub in flex and bumpstop extensions. I could add 1.25" BL or 3/4" spacers to the 2.5". From my research, I've pretty much narrowed it down to the Zone 3" or the OME 2.5" Heavy Duty. Mind you, I am on a budget so I want to get out as cheap as I can. I know you get what you pay for but from what I've read, the Zone lift is great for light to moderate wheeling. I go to high school full time so I'm not going to do anything too hardcore. Also, I learned that craigslist is freakin' awesome. I picked up a pair of what I believe to be Olympic 4x4 Xtreme Reversa-Bars Rock Sliders for $80. They need to be painted and a little rust removed but I'm sandblasting them, the bumpers, and the mirrors anyways. I also picked up a pair of 7" Delta Quadbar Headlights for $50 (reg. $159.99) that were only used for about a month. They are considerably brighter than stock and I love 'em. Feel free to give me your opinions on what you would do about the lift or any other recommendations. Also, tell me what you think about the Jeep!:D

Nice find man!! And yes craigslist can be awesome! Just be careful as there are always some sketchy people around. Im no help with the lift though mine luckily came the way it did. But those headlights are sweet looking. Congrats on the jeep, and im sure others will chime in the the zone lift and what not.
Just be careful with BL, when i wain HS i did a 3 inch BL lol and boy was that a pain in the ass!! But lesson learned lol, you shod be fine with a 1" BL though.

Yeah, I've heard of the horrors of a 3" BL lol. Don't plan on going down that road haha. Thanks for the advice and all of the quick replies!

Nice Jeep man! Looks like 33's fit pretty good on yours with the 2.5".
