Ideas for my JK

I have attached pics of my JK hoping I can get ideas on tire size and lift combinations I can use. Any ideas?

why do you want new wheels/tires and a lift?

Looks good to me the way it is. Do you want larger tires?
What size lift is on there now?

If you want quality but a low cost lift and for efficient moderate off-roading, you may want to consider the AEV 2" spacer lift. This lift is plenty for upgrading to 33" tires. Many people have the BFG's. I really do love the BFG's, however I fell in love with my new Nitto Trail Grapplers!!! They look aggressive and at the same time are quieter than most. They have been great off roading in the sand and had no problems in the snow this winter. Between the 2" lift and 33" tires it give the Wrangler an aggressive cool look without breaking the bank.

Guys I have gone with a 2.5 inch lift and installed 35's. The Jeep is running awesome and quality of ride is no different in spite of the lift being a Pro Comp. I feared the lift would affect the quality of the ride, but either the guys who did the work are really good, or the rap given these lifts is unwarranted. Let me know what you guys think? I am very happy with the aggressive look of my rig now!!!!!

I like it. Not sure about the wheels, but it is always hard to tell from photos and that is personal taste anyway.

Thanks. I agree the wheels don't look like much in the pics, but they sure look mean in person. I am planning on installing rock sliders and tubular doors.

From what i can see, those wheels look pretty nice. The big tires make a huge difference, gives the jeep an attitude!

I'm digging on the yellow, too. Looks great man!

Gotta take those doors off, though.

Let us know how the lift holds up over time.

Will post pics once the doors come off and the sliders are on. I am hearing a little squeaking in the front end when the suspension shifts position. Is this normal? You guys think it may need adjustment of some kind?

Could be poly bushings or the lift itself. My Fabtech on my 98 GMC was a squeaker. Im no professional, just my $0.02

Hmm looks great. i guess this is a personal opinion but i've never been a big fan of these fancy rims JK owners are putting on these days. I like the basic black steelys, you can never go wrong with those.
