O my gfs mom is ganna sell a pair of at least 42's and I'm planning on maybe a 3 inch lift maybe 2 . How high do I have to lift it before I can put the 42's on I have 31's in right now and theres like a 3 inch gap in my wheel well. I'm a newbie with lifts and stuff any info or comments would be great UP FOR OPINIONS
Does your gf's mom drive monster trucks? If you are serious about putting 42" tires on a jeep you need a LOT more than a 3" lift, and many, many other things to make it drivable, gearing, upgraded brakes, drive shafts, a huge bank account, etc, etc...
You will also need 4 matching size tires. two won't do it.
I would pass on the 42's. Read and learn a little more before jumping into something like that. Its not a simple swap. Not only will you need new gears but I would completely swap out front and rear axles. Maybe even go to 1 ton axles.
In order to fit the 42's you'll need more suspension lift, or keep the 3" lift you have and get comfortable with a sawzall and hammer.
If you want to just drive down the road in a strait line and never do anything like... Oh IDK turn. Then its doable. But if you want to do anything else your looking at a whole lot of coin to do it even close.to right.
