Doing some shopping for the wrangler. Couple Questions.

Okay guys, I've had my 99 wrangler for a few months now and would like to start some minor modifications. I would like to get some aftermarket iON rims, a 2inch budget boost suspension lift, and a 1 inch body lift. Here are my questions.

1. I want to go with the iON style 174 simulated beadlock style rim. I want a rim that is the same size as my stock rims. My jeep came with the canyon style rims. Are these the 15x8 rim with the 3.5 backspacing, that I would be looking at purchasing? or is stock the 15x10 and 4.0 backspacing?

2. Do I need to look at buying any accessories to my 2 inch bb lift? such as transfercase drop kit, etc.?

3. With a 1inch body lift (combined with the 2inch bb) do I need to buy any accessories such as the longer motor mounts?

I really want to do this the right way and get a list of everything I'm going to need. Sorry if these questions are all no brainers, but I'm new to a lot of this. Thanks!

Stock Canyons are 15x8 with 5 or 5.5" bs, I forget which.... You shouldn't need anything other than the spacers and bump stop extensions for the BB, no clue about the BL...

What size tire are you planning on? You'll need less than stock bs to fit anything over a 10.5" wide tire... That's why we all have aftermarket wheels...

Thank you very much ma'am. Exactly what I needed to know. The backspacing is what was really throwing me. I haven't decided on a tire yet, I just know the 15x8 ion alloys have one choice for backspace (on quadratec). Thank you very much though for the reply.
