Also...and I know I'm stretching the 'Wrangler' connection here...how big can I go with the tires on a GC without a lift? Thank you much.
I believe the 17" & 18" wheels fit the GC and it is the 16" JK wheels that the calipers rub, and if I remember correctly 30" tires are the largest tires that fit the stock GC. A few years ago I sold my stock 17" wheels and tires to a guy with a lifted GC and I think that is what he told me.
