Finally decided to buy another Jeep as I've missed my CJ7 since the day after I sold it. I've narrowed it down to a 2000-2003 TJ with the 4.0, 5 speed, and as stock as I can find. It won't be used as a daily driver but will see extended trips out of town. My initial thoughts for a lift is a 4" long arm (Rubicon, Terraflex) with 33" tires. Gearing and lockers will be installed/changed as well. The rest of the mods will be bolt-ons or cosmetic items.
I have no plans of going too radical on my off-road jaunts. Most of my trips will be to Death Valley and the Sedona area. However, I want something that can handle the Rubicon if I get a wild hair. Will 33"s be sufficient or should I go bigger? Any other ideas or feedback? Anything else I should look out for?
Again, it's not a daily driver and will be mainly a trail rig. I prefer not to trailer if I can help it so some decent road manners would be nice.
Thanks in advance for your input,
