Ok gang paint done , new bumpers installed . Gas tank skid plate replaced and thinking I would like upgrade the profile. Lift, tires and rims. This is my daily driver , no heavy off road and commute 30 miles each way twice a week. Was thinking a 2 inch suspension and larger tires with out doing any modifications. Help a guy out with your recommendations.

2" budget boost and 31" tires and you'd be golden.

Factory tires:


DC2's:

You can fit 31's in ur jeep without lifting it just need aftermarket rims with back spacing. That's what I did. I have a 3.07 dana 35 axel so 31's are as big as I can go. But I'm about to get new gears next week (in the mail now 4.56 so I can run 33's after a lift) just depends on what gears u have to say what tires u should get? Especially if its a DD, what gears and axel do u have?

2"-2.5" suspension lift, and a 1.25" JKS body lift!
Will allow 33" tires, will look tough, will ride better than factory, and will handle occasional off road excursion as opposed to just trail riding.

The 2.5 inch lift and 32 tires seems more than sufficient for me

Oh, and I'm an idiot. Those are not factory tires in the first pic. I meant to say factory wheels, yes i know the difference. The tires in first are 31" MTRs and the second pic are with Dick Cepeck wheels and 31" BFG ATs tires.
