31" tires are perfect for a DD. They fit the wheel well nicely. They aren't big enough to require any re-gearing. They don't put a great deal of stress on the axles. Should be fine with factory wheels and the factory backspacing, if that's what you have.

1" body lift, 1" shackles, and bastard-pack springs. So at least 2" of lift. I have no clue what the springs gave me.

fresh YJ leafs might give you the clearance, but 24yr old springs have pretty much flattened out! I run 31" with no lift and TJ flares

This is from the day I bought mine. 3" body lift and General Grabber 31" were all that was done to it.

No, that's back when I had 3.75" backspace rims.

2 1/2" RE lift with 31" BFG's.

Mine is a dd also and the springs were really flat and shocks were total trash. After, the ride is actually very nice, not harsh or jarring, and nothing rubs and the rest is actually very stock, fender flares included.
