Nice Jeep and great pics! That is exactly the look I am going for was that BL a necessity to fit the 32's? My Jeep is basically just a DD that rarely will see any trails and probably never be at full flex, but I really like the look of the 32's and was wondering if I could get away with just the OME kit.

If you arent disconnecting and really only plan of driving paved roads you should be fine.

Put it this way...... 32x11.5's on a stock suspension



Just make sure your rims have the proper back spacing.

Alright thanks a lot! These pics were very helpful. How do I go about figuring out what the perfect backspacing would be for my rig? I am new to upgrading my Jeep I have driven a bone stock TJ for the past 3 years and I am looking forward to finally having a more custom ride, so thanks again for all the help.

I was looking into an OME 2" also cause everyone told me no way to fit 33's on stock suspension well I now run 33's on stock suspension with no rubbing at full tuck.... this photo is NOT max flex but it does sit on 33s I have more pix upon request and i can take a photo of flat on the ground if ya want but my stinger and winch makes my front end sag real bad... i'm in the process of fixing that. and on stock steel wheels

I don't have a body lift with my OME 2" lift and at full flex my 32's fit just right. If the tires were any bigger, they would rub in the fenders.

Do you have any pics of your rig? Your setup sounds exactly like what im looking at buying with the 265/75/16's i thinking im going with the Mickey Thompson Classic II wheels though.

I have 265/75/16's on it now. I'll look on my computer at home tonight and see what I can come up with. I know that every time I try to post a picture it's too big and when I scale it down it looks like crap. I'm not very good with downloading pictures

Here this will take you to a picture I posted once before.
Not the best picture but you can kind of get an idea.
