    :jeepwave::jeepwave::jeepwave:Debating about which way to go or if go at all. Just put some 33’s on my JL and although I love the look I’m wondering if I should go up just a bit higher. If I do, should. Entertain spacers or full blown lift kit. I don’t have intend to do a lot of off road but if I do, it won’t be extreme rock crawling. Mostly soft sand since I’m two hours from the beach. I would like to have the option to do some heavy terrain occasionally.

    I’m a rookie when it comes to the Jeep life so keep that in mind with your thoughts and suggestions

    replies are very welcomed!

    Have you thought about getting high clearance fenders? It would allow larger tires and help keep the center of gravity a little lower.

    Center of gravity! First time I’ve heard anyone mention that factor. Thanks for the tip!

    I’d recommend a 2-2.5” Teraflex lift kit. The more complete kit the better.
