    Hey guys. I'm new to the jeep world. Have had CJs in the past but years ago. Just bought a 17 unlimited sport. What suspension lift and tires would you recommend for a daily driver? Not looking to break the bank but have a little $$ to spare. Any advice would be appreciated

    Hey Newgame4x4. Welcome to the site.

    Yeah, we can start with what Chris4x4 asked. Any specific size tire your looking to get?. You can get 33s on your Jeep now without a lift. But if your looking for a little more aggressive stance. You can go with a simple 2" coil spacer lift. It's a very basic lift. But again. Back to your tire size.

    Welcome! Check out some of the recent build threads like the one JKBob made. Lifts and tires are great first upgrades but there will be some recalibration/geometry correction etc needed to keep your new '17 JK performing correctly. Plan on spending quality time and $$$ on the new JK. Have fun!

    Thanks aggrex. My JK is really nothing special. But thank you for mentioning my build.

    If your interested Newgame4x4. I can send you the details of my build and what you may want to install on your JKU to keep the factory ride.

    Just a heads up. Your decision to buy a jeep. Cost you your savings account. Loll.

    Bottom line. As aggrex said. HAVE FUN. Very important statement.
