how wide are the 31's you are looking at? a 31x10.50 will fit in a 2" lift with little rub. anything wider than that and you will get some rub. you can adjust the turn stops so that you can only turn the wheel so far to keep the tires from rubbing.

here is a link showing how to adjust the stops

It depends on the width of your tire. The height is not be the problem especially if you intend to raise it 2".

If you are going wider than 10" I'd say you should consider wheel spacers or offset rims.

i run a set of 31/10.50's with a 2" lift and i have very little rub. the only time that it tends to rub is when i am out on the trail with the sway bar disconnected.
