from what I understand the Rough Country 2.5 inch lift allows for 32's. So I'd venture yes.

From RCs site:
This suspension lift is designed to give your Jeep TJ optimal on and off-road performance with up to a 32 tire. It offers a perfect balance for a daily driver that also desires great off-road performance. These ride quality and performance gains are delivered by our new progressive rate coil springs combined with our Performance 2.2 shocks.

More than enough lift for 32 inch tires. Lots of posts on this forum regarding lifts and tires.

What kinda wheels do you have?
If stock, the tires may rub at full turn (which is why you'd need to extend the steering stop)
If aftermarket, w/ 4" or less backspacing, you should be fine.

2-5" to 3" lift

Thanks for the response i am going to drive it like it is for a while until i really get to know my jeep then make a decision. I am new to off roading and i like to do a little research before i decide anything. I went to the deer lease and did some trails and the camp and it handled very well so i am going to use it stock for a while.
To everyone with advise thank yo for your time.

i think 3" might be better for 32's cause i have RC 2.5' lift and i rub with 32's when on uneven terrain. they still fit with proper backspacing but just have less room to flex.

lift height isn't your problem...the problem is bumpstop length. fix the bumpstops and tires won't rub...
