31's and lift

I have 31's on now, but want to put new 31 Duratracs on to tackle the high country in Summit County, CO. I want to lift my TJ as well any suggestions on a lift? I'm new to upgrading my Jeep.

Buy tackling the high country, are you refering to forest roads not maintainenced for cars? Or are you refering to taking routes thats require high clearance with armor against boulders and squeezing through tight trees?

It's very heavy, I would wear a back brace, and bring several large friends.

I have 31's and just put on a 3.25" suspension lift. I'm eventually going to go with 32" or 33" when it's time to upgrade.

I'm talking about non- forest roads with trees/boulders. Last summer I barely had enough clearance for some of the routes I found myself on.

Well, if you are going to stick with the 31"s, but my first reaction would be to go with a OME 2" lift.

You might want to consider bumping up to a 3ply sidewall tire like the MTR/K if you are planning boulders/trees. Under Armor will be your friend in that kind of terrain.
