Mud grapplers on a TJ

So lately I've been thinking about just goin big and getting some mud grapplers for my jeep, but I did notice that instead of the size being 33x12.50 that it's 33x13.50. Would that 13.50 be a problem with a jeep? Because I don't see many jeePS with mud grapplers, would I just need wheel spacers or what? Thanks everyone

So If I got a 2 inch suspension lift, 3 inch body lift, 33x13.50 R15 mud grapplers, and 1 inch wheel spacers would I be good to go? Like I wouldn't have to worry about gearing or new brakes and new steering or any of that junk?

woah 13.5? that's gonna stick out far! I don't know for sure but I'd guess yeah you're gonna want to beef up the brakes, def your steering at the very least. turning 13.5 inch tires might be rough on the stock parts.

Do us all a favor and don't run a 3" body lift. 1.25" should be the max.

What's wrong with a 3" body lift? I goes well with my budget considering I'm a 16 y/o in high school :/

I had a 2" BL and I hated it. I love my 1.25 now. The 2" didn't even look right I can imagine a 3"

You have to increase the length of fuel lines, gas filler neck, there is more leverage on the bolts that hold the body to the frame, looks bad, doesn't increase off road ability, etc. Save a little more and get a nice 2.5"-3" suspension lift and a 1.25" body lift. I was able to save and afford it and I'm in high school.
