Someone very wise once told me on forums you will get many opinions... you have to do your best to figure out whats best for you, looking at many peoples opinions who have had the tires rather than just two will help you do just that

Also with the backspacing deal... now im not sure with this so hopefully someone will chime in, but if you really like your stock rims wheel spacers may solve your problem with tire rub. For about $200 it might be something you want to consider

Thats the same lift kit I have haha if you want a pic to see how it looks i could PM you one. The lift is working out for me very well, however i do have an SYE and OME shocks. I think you will be fine with the driveline because it lowers your transfercase. Only words of advise i could give you is if you are planning on fixing the jeep up more and off roading it then you may want to get a kit that has stuff in it that you will end up buyin anyway (ie. swaybar discos, trac bars, maybe the eight conrol arms since this kit only comes with the front 2) Then again my jeep is doing just fine witout all that stuff so you dont really need to spend the extra money. If this is your first jeep or you just want to start off with something that can perform on the trails and still handle well on the street then i support your choice with the lift kit 4 sure

you don't HAVE to get a slip yoke and cv driveshaft but you will definitely want to. when you get to 4" of lift the driveshaft is short enough to where it can pull out of the t case or jam in it. the t case lowering kit will help reduce vibes but won't help with the driveshaft. it also lowers the skid plate which means less clearance and they are pretty ugly. some people get vibes with the 4" and some don't. either way though you will definitely want a sye and cv driveshaft.

the difference between 5x5.5 and 5x4.5 is the amount of distance between the lugs. you cannot buy a 5x5.5 wheel because the wheels holes where they mount on the jeep are too far apart and will not fit the jeep. in other words you HAVE to get a 5x4.5 for it to fit. otherwise the holes are too far apart and they will not fit on your jeep

The problem is when people offer opinion and have zero experience with what they are talking about. If you don't know first hand, then you should shut the hell up.

Pardon my directness, but this is the root of much of the break down in rereliable forum data.

the sye (slip yoke eliminator) and cv driveshaft will solve all your driveline vibration problems. i'd just make sure that when you lift it everything like the trackbar is tight. some lifts come with trackbar brackets or some people get adjustable trackbars. either way just check it or you could end up death wobblin' down the highway

look, i run the bfg muds and i love them. they are great on the trail and great on the road. and they are cheaper than mtr's. i'm not sure how much toyo's are so i can't say if they are cheaper than them

your right, it does keep getting more expensive but its worth it!

Ok ive done some research around here and i think that im going ot hold off on the sye and cv for now. I will only be using it for a DD and will upgrade later.



(not mine i just like the looks of the wheels)

This is kind of what i want it to look like with the wheels sticking out a little. 33x12.5 BFGs will get me this right? With 3 3/4 they will stick out a little like this right?

i can tell you that those wheels look like 15x10's and if you decide to run 15x8's they wont stick out as far being the wheel is more narrow. i have 15x8's 3.75 bs and 32x11.50's here is a pic to give you an idea of it sticking out. they are about 1 in past the fender flairs. its the best one i got right now.

Are those stock TJ rims or are they some kinda aftermarket with different backspacing? I would like to hear from someone with stock rims and 32x11.5's, with a 2" BB.

there aftermarket american racing's with 3.75 in backspacing.

i dont think you could run with stock rims and tires that wide. the rear spring perch would need to be grinded down a little to keep from cutting your tire.
