Forgive me if this is a stupid question. I recently purchase a 94 YJ and am loving every second. I am not the most mechanically inclined person but I am learning. I keep the YJ in my garage and I have about 5.5 inches of clearance due to a soffit that runs through it. It is currently on 26 tires. I want to go bigger but I also want to be able to keep it in the garage in the winter (not a daily driver). I am thinking a 2.5 inch lift and 28 inch tires.
So on to my question, my brother is telling me that upsizing to 28 inch tires will only add one inch of height to the vehicle because the other inch gain will be in the wheel well. Is this correct? I just can't seem to wrap my brain around this but like I said above, I am kind of new to this.
