lift and tires

I just got an 05 unlimited and I want to put some bigger tires and a lift on it. I was thinking 32 bfg a/ts or maybe some mickey ts. How much of a lift do I need and should I go with spacers or a body lift? And what is a good choice that will perform well and will not be too expensive? And I also want to make a choice that is simple and doesn't involve any (if possible) modifications. Thanks.

For 32's just get a 2" spacer lift and you should be good to go. Skyjacker makes a pretty good 2" spacer lift and shocks for around $ 250.00.

Here's the link: 2" Standard Lift Kits for '97-'06 Jeep Wrangler - Quadratec

For 33's do what I posted above and add a 1" body lift.

go with a 2" spacer lift, 1" bl, fine for 33's. as for wheels, if you want 33X12.50's you need different rims. Stock rims dont have the backspacing you need. There are 100's of threads about this. Dont be scared of the search, it wont bite you.

No 3" spacers are not recommended however you can go with 3" springs

Orange, the tons of information people have at their fingertips with 0.0595 seconds waiting time that answers all of their questions is sometimes frightening.
