While waiting for others to chime in try browsing the "TJ picture thread" in the Pictures Forum. Also the "Silver Jeeps unite" thread in the same forum. Should be plenty there to give you an idea on looks.

Welcome!

What size wheels and tires did you have in mind?

For 31" tires I would definitely use a 15" wheel of your choice. 31s fit a stock Jeep with not rubbing. However many people do a. .75-2" budget boost which is spacers that sit on top of the coil and they also buy new longer shocks. IMO it looks pretty slick.

With 32" tire you're going to start to feel some power drain. Which engine, transmission, and axle gearing do you have?

Personally, I run 33x12.50x15 on a 15x8 tire with 3.74" backspacing, 3.75" of lift, and 4.56 gearing

Put in your VIN here, and you'll get a detailed build sheet on your toy!
It will show you everything that came with it from the factory, including gearing.
