    92 yj 4cyl 2.5L. stock. want to upgrade!

    Hello,
    I am new to this site, and wanted to see if anybody here could guide me through on how to properly upgrade the jeep.
    By upgrade I mean a lift, 33 inch tires, and I figure since I want to put bigger tires on that world require more heavy duty
    parts. Maybe transfer case or drive shaft. I duno that is why I'm hopping someone can help me out.
    Thank you.
    Boris

    just buy a good lift kit it comes with everthing you need including instructions.

    be prepared to do some cutting (spring bolts) and welding (t case skid plate nuts)

    agreed, cutting discs are nessisary when touching 20 year old bolts.

    look into 4" rough country lift kits. I got mine out of a shop I found directly on their website in montreal, I recieved it the morning after I ordered it and it took me a weekend to completely install it. Evertything was bolt on, included shocks transfer case drop, pit man arm drop and everything else you needed to be road and trail worthy, ran me around $500 and change. I ran 33's with that comfortably but put in the 2" body lift so I had the room to flex it out. In total $750, $80 in penitrate and a solid week of wrenchin.

    Awesome that's some good info to start with. Do you remember the site by any chance?
    Eitherway no big issue. Do you think four danger can handle 33's?

    call the 1-800 number at the top, you'll probably talk to some super southern american, ask about PJF 4X4 in quebec and get their contact info

    if you plan to take your upgraded Jeep offroad - i would suggest you also install some skid plates and other armour too

    they are heavy ( 200 lbs on the XJ ), can be expensive ( unless you can fab yourself )...

    but judging by the scars on them
    they have saved my LC arms, both diffs, engine, TC, rockers, gas tank

    the peace of mind + money you save in repair bills will pay for them
