Lift TJ 2000

I'm looking to do just a small mod on my TJ of a 2.5" suspension lift with 32x11.50x15 tires. I was just curious if the tires would rub on turns or anything like that?

It depends on what wheels you're going to be using. Stock wheels have 5.5" of backspacing and will likely cause rubbing on full turns. That is easy to fix by adding washers to your steering stops limiting turn radius. However, you may have bigger issues in the rear with that size tire rubbing your upper coil buckets. It may depend on the actual tire brand as to how fat it is inflated. I know mine was tight with 30's so I just got new wheels with less backspacing when I went up in tire size.
