2010 JK - 1st modification

Looking to make my first modification by upgrading stock tires & wheels. Also looking to add a little lift. Looked @ Nito Trail Grappler and Mickey Thompson Baja. 75% plus road driving so I need to stay practical there. Want to do more trails and MUD! 2 cents from fellow jeepers appreciated.

Nittos are insanely heavy tires and will suck up quite a bit of your performance depending on which size you go with. They are a damn good looking tire though. I don't know much about the Mickey tires, so I can't speak on those.

Hard to give recommendations on lift until we know what size tire you are wanting to run. If you are wanting to stick with 33s, they can be run on stock suspension. If you are wanting to go up to a 35, then look into something like a 2.5" coil lift (Teraflex, Rock Krawler, etc).
