Lift, Tires Questions

Hey, I am sort of new to the whole wrangler thing but I have been reading posts on here for awhile. I got a few questions about upgrades. I have a 2000 Wrangler Sport, everything stock. I would like to run 32 inch BFG Mud Terrains. What will I need in order to do so? I was planning on getting a 2" BB and a 1" BL. Does anyone have suggestions on which to get? I was checking out Quadratec and looking at RE 2 inch BB or Skyjacker 2 inch spacer lift with hydro or nitro shocks with either a Daystar 1 inch BL or JK 1.25" BL. Any opinions on these? Also, will the BFGs fit on stock wheels, can someone help me with the size, dimensions of the stock wheels? Last question, sorry, if going from 30 inch tires to 32 inch tires, will I need to regear? I appreciate the help from anyone. THANKS.

you should be fine with the 2"bb and 1"bl and a set of 32's, the only thing you might have to do is get some wheel spacers to eliminate and tire rub when turning

Check out this kit first. Its better worth the money than the budget boost. My buddy's got it on his Rubicon and loves it. You should be able to run 32s with just this kit.

Get wheels with 4 inch backspace and you should be alright...The 1" BL will probably fit 32's...
With the BB added you could go t0 33's possibly

if you have the canyon wheels which are 15x8 youll be fine but youll either have to have wheel spacers, or adjust your steering stops to prevent rubbing
