Want bigger tires but max 3 inch lift if I lift at all.
Sahara looks good so far to me but wondering about Rubicon or Altitude. Can spend around 35k.
Any help much appreciated and apologies for my initial lack of knowledge. Been looking at the forum quite a bit to educate myself.
I'm not sure what you need help with. Which model do you like? Which one seems like it will best suit your needs?
Because of this statement, "Like 4x4 but not necessarily going to off road much" I'd scratch the Rubicon right outta the gate. You'll have no need for it's off-road extras.
To me, the Altitude is just a gimmick. I understand some peeps like them, and if you're one of them, have at it. But you're paying extra $$ for different-colored rims, some stitching and a couple of stickers. As I said, JMO.
I'd advise you to do a good bit of research before you start thinking about big tires and 3" lifts.
