    Opinions/Suggestions on Build(s)

    Well, we finally purchased the wife's Jeep for a winter/wheelerit’s a 2002 Jeep Tj Sport, and with some luck and a lottery win we can be wheeling together by the spring I have a basic idea (wish) of what I’m planning and wondering if for the short term If I’m missing anything, If so please let me know what your thinking The TJ will be on a tight budget!

    For the JK Rubicon to Roll on 37’s (in addition to current mods)
    Step1
    PA 2” Body Lift- Have
    Skyjacker Front Spacer- Have
    Bumper relocate
    Do you think I will require:
    Adjustable Control Arms- Rock Krawler
    Step 2
    5:13 Gears, Gear Install
    Step 3
    Tires 37x12.5 x17-Pro-Comp EMT (5)
    Lastly-Chip

    For the TJ to Roll on the old 35’s
    Suspension Lift 4” Lower to Mid Range Cost Suggestions??
    Not Sure what else I will require ?
    35” tires- Have Rims-Have

    The L o n g T e r m JK Rubicon to Roll on 40’s
    Suspension- Rock Krawler 5.5 x Factor (kit)
    Shocks- Pro-Comp Mx6+++

    Thanks for any suggestions and comments

    to get the tj on the 35s go with a 2 in body lift and real 2-3 in suspention lift.

    it will keep the center of gravity low and still squezze in the 35 with decent but not overwhelming clearance (the perfect mall crawler)

    My Options
    1. Get the wheel adapters and a 2 body lift then put on my like new Rubicon 32's and rims

    2. Sell my Rubicon 32's (5000K) for I'm thinking $1,350 for 5 then install the 35's on the Rubi now to the Tj and get a 4" lift or as suggested above 2 in body lift and real 2-3 in suspension lift.

    Issues, If i do option 1 the rims will be worth less as they will have neen winter driven and when we change the wheel adapters are useless thus wastine money.

    Option 2 issue is that is it' a lot more money at one time as the rubi would need a lot of stuff

    Thanks for the Advise/Options everyone it really is appreciated.
