Re: Best lift for an 84 CJ7?
That's all personal preference and what situations you'll be finding yourself in. Are you looking for ride quality over price fo looks over performance. Rocks, mud, snow or sand offroad situations. many things to take into account. there's no one right set-up or we'd all be running the same thing. If you have the money and want the best ride, Old Man Emu (OME) is suppose to tbe a very nice ride and great flex. if you've got limited finances but need some lift, a Superlift kit is pretty reasonble and probably the least costly. (my personal preference being broke [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] ) Tires, I'm impressed with my Wild Country RVT mud terrrains, aggressive enough to keep up with my buddies running Swampers, cheap enough that I can still get groceries, and wear slow enough on the road that I've had them over a year as my Daily Driver and weekend warrior. Not to mention do fine at 70 on the highway. Gearing, My thought on that, If you're needing to ask then you need to wait to learn more about it. read more on this board, and in periodicals from your local newsstand to learn more on what would suit your tiresize, driving habits and terrain. I hear everybody wanting a T-18 and D300 combo for their CJ because it's suppose to be one of the best set-ups. Sure it's great with it's 6.03:1 first gear, but 6.03:1 does no good in mud where you want RPMs. My T-150 and D20 suits all my driving requirements so far but I'd have a tough time if I hauled my CJ out Moab for some crawling. I'd better take a few clutches with me [img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]
