I just bought my first TJ last week. Got a 2000 4.0 5 speed and its all stock. I am wanting to put a lift and wheels and tires on it. Just wanted to get some other thought on how big to go with lift and tires its is my DD. and didn't want to kill all the fuel milage. Thanks

Depends on how much you want to spend and how big you want to go. I just ordered my 2" BB with Bilstien 5100 shocks. Heard from others it was the way to go for a first basic lift as my 06 LJ is stock right now. Maybe you can look into something like this. I'm sure others will give you some more ideas on what's out there. Hope that helps. Best of luck to you. Don't forget to wave. :)

First, you need to decide how you want to use your rig. That will save you a ton of $$ and time. There should be no second and third lifts if you plan correctly. If your going to be mall crawling it lift quality is almost a mute point, if your going to be doing some good serious wheeling get out and drive it a little while as is, and talk to guys in your area to see what works. Once you have an understanding of what parts do what and you know why you are buying each part, then buy a set up.

Don't rush into a lift and end up with a cheap on if your going to be doing some descent stuff which will just cause you to buy a whole new kit again.
