Hey guys need some info. I have a 2000 TJ with 4banger, 5 speed, and 4.88 gears. It has 4in of lift. It has 33x12.5x15 on it now. The guy that had the jeep said he tried 35's but to much for engine. I am looking at pro comp xt and was thinking about 35's or should I stay with 33's. The jeep will be a D.D for about 6 more months.

33's are about the limit for a daily driven Jeep with the 2.5l. If you go bigger than that, you will lose 5th gear on the highway... Not good for the mpg... The other thing to look at is the axles, expecially the rear. I have seen guys drive their Jeeps with the brand new 35's through a mud puddle and break an axle shaft in a Dana 35. Even 33's usually bend axle shafts in the 35. I would stick with 33's and upgrade the rear axle before you install 35" tires on your Jeep.
