Bit of a weird question

I have a tj 4.0 with 31x10.5s with 2.5' lift (with shocks and springs all suspension) well me and my buddy with a 98 grand cherokee (no lift still stock tires and rims) were talking about climbing tires. Would mine climb up on his? If so would it scratch my jeep (im a teen driver and my parents frown on offroading etc, hence the lack of doing it often) and how would i do it?

i did it in a moment of stupidity before with my axle locked. the bark ended up slipping off and the jeep crashed to the ground. banging the bumper on the tree. no real damage to the jeep just the tree missing the bark. i have a stock front bumper so i had to angle the wheels out then come back straight once it started climbing.

I can't see being able to climb up onto the tire of a Grand Cherokee. My son has one and I don't think there's sufficient clearance on or around its tires to give you enough room to do it without the likelihood of your tire sliding off and your Jeep taking out part of the Grand Cherokee's fender etc. on the way down.

i think jerrys right. there's not enough clearance around the gc's tires.

what if he had 1.5 inch wheel extenders? (he plans on getting a set to run bigger tires and lift) but it needs to be something with like no fenders or removable fenders? heck itl be easier for me to crawl the beetle that parks next too me
