2.5 inch lift and 32 inch tire?????

Guys, would a 2.5 inch suspension lift be enough for a 32 inch tire?

These YJ's don't have awesome fender clearance, so I was thinking a 32 by 11.50 tire might fit better in the fender and not stick out too much with a 3.75 inch backspace wheel.

What about this kind of suspension lift and a jks body lift or a small lift boom shackle?

Pictures of this combo would be great!

I had 32's with no lift and they did fine. You should be ok with the 2.5" lift.

You can look at my pic in my "now the fun begins" thread, but I have 32x11.50 tires on 15x10 wheels with a 2.5 inch rough country lift.
Always remember, it is better to keep quiet and have people think you are a moron than to speak and remove all doubt

I had 31's on my 2-1/2" lift w/o any problems flexed out, so if you have any problems w/ 32's it might be small. And you could always go w/ TJ flares and then not have any at all.

you seriously have no lift at all? stock shackles and no body lift? to me at least, you have a lot of room after sticking those 32s under there on stock susupension! i have seen 31s stuffed under the fenders with like 1/2" of room between the tire and the fender touching. Thats a nice clean looking jeep you got there, by the way.

Bone stock all I did was trim the flares a bit but nothing too significant
