Lift and Tires, please help!!

Hey guys I currently have a 2007 jeep wrangler Jk X, I was looking for some upgrades and I am thinking about some 45 inch Super swamper LTB's. A 3 inch Daystar Lift Kit, and some 1.5 inch wheel spacers. I have 17 inch rims and everything else is stock. Anyone have any suggestions or concerns please reply!

Is this the look you are going for? These are 40s by the way.






this is actually pretty easy to do if you have a spare $100k laying around.

Takes a lot of money to look that cool.

Oooooo it will look good then lol what gear ratio do you have? May need to regear with the older engine and that large of tires. Also depending on 2 or 4 door you might have drive shaft concerns depending on how hard you wheel and the actual height that lift does in fact lift your jeep. Maybe some c gussets since I'm guessing Those tires are probably pretty heavy.

Gusset and sleeve the front axle....you can wait on the regear until after the lift and tires are on it and you've driven it....some guys don't regear, others do....I drove mine about a week before I had my gears done and I'm happy with the new gears
