New chic looking for help

I'm looking for suggestions, I'm new to the jeep thing and having a blast, my 89 YJ is mostly stock. I figured out today I have d35 in the back and d30 in the front. I already have the 4x4 posi-lok kit, just need to install it. I have a 2 1/2 inch skyjacker lift, 33" tires, Skyjacker shocks ( Although a friend told me to get rid of them) I live in the pine barrens of new jersey so I'm running on alot of sand, but loooove the mud and water....so that what should I do to get the best out my ride?

You sound like you already have a decent platform for the running gear you have. There's not a whole lot more you can do without getting too hardcore (axle swaps, trimming/custom fenders, etc.) I'd say just wheel/enjoy it.

I dont think that amount of lift will let you do anything but drive on 33's, if you get too aggressive you will have a tire into the fender or body real easy.

X2 You need 4" of lift to be able to wheel with 33's. Either that or start cutting your fenders and rear tub to fit em.

Front locker should be your next upgrade or a winch, and I hope you have front and rear recovery points already.

I was mistaken, I just went and looked I'm on 32's, I do have recovery points.

could get fancy and do on board air.. thats always nice to have... invest in a fullsize spare and a hi lift.. maybe do so extra lighting... better seats. more power... maybe a ax15 swap i would get rid of that d35 and swap in a ford 8.8 much stronger and you ahve rear disc then... then you dont have to worry about breaking it when u lock it
