Lift Advice/ Opinions HELP!!!

I have a 95 YJ and right now I have a set of 31" All-Terrains stuffed in there cause I couldn't stand the stock tires. My friend this spring is going to lift it for me, he has a set of 4" leafs and he plans to spring over the back. Opinions? Also, what size tire would be best for this size lift? And should I go with Mud-Terrains or Super Swampers?

Thank you!! (I'm a newbie, and desperately need advice lol)

I am not positive on the YJ since but I think you could run 33's pretty good with 4" of lift. Now make sure you do a search and see all the other things you will have to upgrade when you start going with larger tires and lift. Things like axle gearing, slip yoke eliminator are the two big ones that jump out first.

Thank you!! So would the axle gearing cost alot of money? I'm down for whatever I have to pay, I just need to figure out how much I need to save up in order to do so. Also, do you recommend offset rims or wheel spacers? Because right now my tires are too wide and I am unable to cut my wheel hard either way without the tires rubbing.

Few questions: What is your over all goal for the jeep and what size tires would you like to run?

You mention dong a SOA in the back with 4" lift springs. That will net you about 9" of lift. Bit on the high side. What are you plans for the front? Most spring over's use stock leaf packs or those with less than 2" of lift. You also need to think about a traction bar for the rear. Also upgrading your rear axle to perhaps a dana 44 or ford 8.8 would also be a good idea at this point. You may also need to change gears depending on what tires you want to run. Have a shop or someone who knows how to install the gears do this for you, plan at least $1000+ for the gear change.

9" of lift...

X2 with 4Jeepn...
Take a look at this thread for a SOA install. There's a lot more to it than just putting the springs on top of your axles.

I think the OP meant a 4" spring up front and just a SOA in the rear, no added spring in the back.

I am guessing with 4" of lift you will want to run 33's. If you stick with that size you can keep your stock axles and just regear. But if you are hoping to run larger tires down the road you have a lot more work in store.

I agree with 4Jeepin and tell us what your plan for the Jeep is and then we can give you our opinions. What size tires? What type of offroading, rocks, mud, beach? Is it going to be a daily driver?
