    Cool Jeep TJ Questions Lift/Tires/Rims

    Hi, I have a stock 2006 Jeep TJ Sport. I found on kijiji 5 33x12.50x15 BF Goodrich All Terrain tires on black aluminum rims with 1 tire/rim brand new for $800.00. Is this a good deal?

    Secondly I would need at least a 2" lift for this, so I would appreciate recommendations. I only want to go suspension, and was currently thinking 3" Zone Suspension Lift.

    Thirdly will I need wheel spacers?

    Any information, reviews or opinions are valid and worthy to me at this point, cheers.

    $800 as a "deal" would really depend on how much wear is on tires, plugs in tires, cracking, etc.
    You should ask the seller what the back spacing is on the rims. Typically with a wide tire such as this, a back spacing of 3.5 - 3.75" would not require any spacers. Should also confirm bolt hole pattern is 5x4.5" (5x114mm) so they fit your TJ.

    The Zone kits seem to be a pretty popular lift due to the price and reviews have been good. My friend has the 4" and has no complaints since installing 2+ years ago.

    more information is needed...


    You ask if the tires are a good deal, but you do not say how much tread is left...

    you ask about spacers, but don't list rim width and backspacing...



    as for your lift question...zone is a good budget option for somebody wanting a spring lift without spending a lot of money...there are better lifts out there, but they typically cost more...the zone lift will have the basics where the other lifts will include items that would be considered "upgrades" on the zone lift...those "upgrades" can make a big difference in how the lift performs.





    you should probably also describe your planned use for the jeep...how much street time/trail time, what kind of trails/wheeling do you want to do, anything else you feel we should know.

    Thanks fellas. I think I will go with the zone lift then. As for use, I will be doing 75% on road 25% off road. I have so far taken my jeep to sand dunes and mud pits/rivers. I dont plan on rock crawling, but more dirt roads, mudding, sand dunes, easy but typical terrain. The tires are apparently in good condition. No weather cracks, all plugs and still have white lettering with at least 60% tread.
