Mud Tire Help

I have a 2001 4.0L after much research I now realize to do a proper lift on her will take me a little time ...$ I would like to find a decent mud tire to help her out til I can do this. What is the largest I can go and decent mud tire for the current limited size?!?! Any advice would be appreciated plus other mechanical issues im oblivious to. The hubby is trying to help me out but he's a muscle car guy..

31" diameter tires are the biggest you can go on stock and this only if you're doing light wheeling. looks like you have 16" wheels... A typical size would be 275/70R16.

If this is just for looks and to "tie you over" until you get a lift, go cheap on the tires. Look on CL for decent used tires. No sense spending $800 or more on tires only to want to change soon thereafter. Used tires, even hardly used, have no resale value. you might want to look at these:

I would hold off on the tire for bit. Being that once you lift it, you may decide you need to get another set of tires. I would focus on items that will work regardless of what size lift and tires you pick. for example. rocker guards, gas tank skid, oil pan skid, tow hooks etc. Also try to figure out how you will use the jeep in the future.. its a weekend toy a daily driver that might see a trail once in a while. This will go a long way to determine how you build the jeep. while its hard not to go out and get product x , I have found it better to save for a bit longer and build it the way you want.

that being said.. 31 look good on a stock TJ.. even some 32's can fit.. If you looking to do a daily driver/weekend fun jeep.. 33's are really the way to do.. good offroad performance and not to bad for a driver every day. That means a 3 to 4" lift at some point.
