The time has come for my YJ to become a man...err a manlier man

So, my YJ wants to be like my TJ. It's been begging me for a lift, and now is the time. I'm about to order my 4 inch rough country lift, with a steering stabilizer. Anything else I should order along with? It won't be driven to hard off road, so the t-case drop should do just fine. Unfortunately, it's going to have to sit on 31's for about a month and a half due to some other complications, but I've got them all squared away.

Just thought I'd ask before I place my order. I don't wanna get this halfway through the project realized I forgot something.

-Mike

Get the replacement leaf spring bolts. Don't bother with the gas nitrogen shocks, they are rated for a much heavier vehicle. The hydraulic shocks are fine. Depend on how much abuse you plan to give your YJ, you may also want to do the extended brake lines.

I think RC has a kit that includes everything you need including brake line extensions. I bought mine a little over a year ago and it was about $450 and it had everything. I did end up having to get a SYE and shaft.

I was looking at the new leaf spring bolts, but I wasn't sure. I'll probably grab those too.

I'm also going 33x10.5 because I really don't want to buy new rims. I've got 15x7, so I figured 33x12.5 wouldn't mount. Anyone have any problems with 33x10.5 on 15x7 rims?

I've seen a 15.50 on a 10 so I would say a 12.50 will go on a 7 no problem....The only issue would be wearing the center out of the tire faster than the rest. That being said, I don't forsee a problem with a 10.5 on a 7

I'm running 33x10.5 on stock 15x8s but 15x7 should be fine. You'll just have to adjust your steering stops because with the stock back spacing your tires will hit your springs. I just spaced it out with another nut and it was fine.

I'm on Crager soft 8's, so backspacing shouldn't be an issue.
