ok im on the verge of buying a new jeep, and i have some questions. first is what is the diff between the CJ, YJ, TJ models?
second, im buying a 6 banger and im planing on putting a 4 inch lift on it with either 33 or 32 size tires on it.. i was wondering if anybody knew if theres a really good brand of lifts that i should look into.
third, not really a question but is there any random advice or helpful info you guys can give me.
thanks Casey

i would go with 33's...and when your talking lifts i've heard skyjacker is the absolute best...although its not exactly cheap it is pretty complete and it flexes awesome and is tough and durable and havent heard complaints...but then again fabtech and rubicon express are good too...and rough country standard 4 inch is only 500 dollars and is complete with everything and the only bad thing i've heard is a rough ride which i dont think is a big deal
TJ = 97-06 round headlights
YJ = 87-95 square headlights
CJ = 86 and earlier round headlights
any questions on the lift just ask
they do not come with an sye but they do come with a transfer case lowering kit (spacers) that help get rid of some vibrations...if you get a 4 inch lift u could or could not get vibrations...but if you do its no big deal...i dont really mind it...and you can always get a longer cv style driveshaft with sye...but the only problem you MiGhT have is vibrations...but then again maybe not
