Well, after 1 year of owning my 2002 TJ.......

I have decided that it is time to do a "little" lifting. Now I need your help. All I want to do is install 32" tires with black steelies. This will not be for off road use, just for a little nicer "Jeep" look in my opinion. What do I need to do to accomodate the 32" tires? I have a 2002 Sport. Where is the best place to get the steelies, lift, and tires? I would like to do minimal modifications to make this work if at all possible. I know that this has been discussed a million times, but for some reason it was a little confusing for me, but now that I know what I want to do maybe it will be a little clearer. Thanks for your time and help, Scooby

If you aren't going to off road it I would get a 2" budget boost. The spacers are (I think) 21.99 each from 4wheeldrivehardware dot com. The cheapest steelies I've found were from summit racing. Tires you will want to shop around and find what is going to best suit your needs and pocket book. I would recommend BFG all terrains but that's just me.

as well as black steelies that have 4.0 or 3.75 backspacing
BFG all terrains are the best for all terrain use!

If its not for off road use I would suggest 2" BB

If you think your going to be doing light off roading and have some more money to spend I would recommend a 3" Black Diamond lift...I ran one it for a year and it worked out awsome for me

06 Rubi Unlimited, 3.5" Rubicon Express LA, OME Shocks, Metal Cloak Aluminum Bumper, Warn Winch, Power locks/remote start.
