I have a stock '04 wrangler tj and i wanted to put a lift on it and new tires i think i should be good with the classic rims. any ideas on tire sizes and lift sizes i should go with. my thoughts are 4" lift and 30" tires. but i dont want a rediculous gap between the tire and wheel well. help?
can i fit 31's on the classic alluminium rims without a problem? oh and when i eventually do go to a 4" lift will i have trouble with my driveline and rear axle sitting at an awkward angle i read somewhere that i wouldn't have trouble with it on a 2" lift but anything more and i would snap my driveline
31's will fit without a lift but you may need to put washers on the steering stops so they don't rub when you turn. This will limit your turn radius down to the mortal level of cars.
There is another option if you want to put 33's on and don't want to go changing the drive shaft components. A 2.5" suspension lift + 1" body lift + 1" motor mount lift will clear 33s and does not change the drive shaft angle enough to need the drive shaft mods. The 1" MML eliminates the need for transfer case lowering.
