Been mistreating my '98 Wrangler Sahara for years by not modifying it. About to do it and i have lift/wheel/tire overwhelming of the brain. I know everyone has there own preferences, but there are enough on here who have more experience than i do, so i'll take any advice.
It will be mostly city driving. No extreme offroading. May make a trip to the Deer lease here and there, but that is it. Right now it looks like a baby to other jeeps i pass. Mostly just going for looks. I don't want to end up with big balloon looking tires that extend way outside the fenders. Love the look of all of the newer model jeeps. Will that newer look look right on a smaller older model jeep?
1) 2" lift or 4" to get the look i want? Again, climbing a rock wall not needed. Don't want a huge space between tire and fender either. want it to look lifted, but not look like it's sitting up too high.
2)Stick with 15" rims or can/should i go up? Some have reccomended going up to 17", some say stay with 15" on my model. i thought i'd compromise and go 16", but they say tires harder to find.
3)Tire preference would be the Nitto Trail Grapplers. Also like the Toyo M/Ts. I'm assuming 33s? I just like the look. I LOVE the looks of the newer model jeeps.
Any advice would be helpful! Already read some great things on here.
