Question what would you suggest?

I just got my '07 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara and I would like to lift it a little and put bigger tires on it. Nothing too huge, but I want it to look good. This is a little out of my comfort zone so I'd like to know what other people think would look good. Any suggestions????

4" lift and 35" tires. You'll smile everytime you look at and drive it.

I agree, but he said "Lift it a little, nothing too huge"
Nothing but long arms and a minimum of 37" for me

In my opinion, if he doesn't want the big lifted look and wants to stay in his comfort zone 35's are probably too big for his taste. Lets be honest, 35's are big tires. He has a JKU so personally I would probably want to go with 35's as well.... not knocking that idea. It just sounds to me like he is looking for something along the lines of a 32 or 33.

What is the budget #1

I was kidding btw

How about some Rubicon takeoffs.
32" BF KM's? Maybe even a budget boost or leveling kit for a bit more clearance without emptying the bank.

I've already got 32 Goodyear wrangler A/T's on it so I would like to save money and not have to buy new tires! Only lookin to spend a couple hundred to make it look a little nicer. Those tires would look too little on a 3 or 4 inch lift so I guess what I should've asked is what would look good with 32 tires?

3-4 inches is too much for a 32 inch tire. Hell, from what I heard you can fit 33's with no lift at all. I wouldn't go more than 2 inches with a tire that size.

You don't want a 3-4" lift, gets expensive and will look goofy with 32's.

This was mine with Rubi 32's and a 2.5" coil lift (pic) mud tires have more tread so they will fill the wheel well a little more. It will just look better than a street tire.

This would work perfect for you and if you decide to go a little bigger on tires you can.

I suggest getting 33 x 12.5 inch tires on 15" rims (cheapest long term solution) then decide if you want to lift it after putting them on. If off road is not your main goal them may not need much lift.
