I am impatient! When I got my 04 X last year... I needed something FAST!!!
I found the spending a few hundred instead of a few thousand would satisfy my need for lift and tires for the time being while I saved and collected parts for the 4" lift. Here is my Jeep last summer... Rims look familiar? YEP!! stock and shot with Bedliner. 2" BB and 31's... total cost was $230 for rims and tires... Craigslist is my best friend.
That being said, a small lift of 2" and 31's would be perfect. No need for new rims yet.... as the 31's will look good with stockers. When you go bigger than that, you need new rims due to backspacing. The new rims will have a different offset to push the wheel out and clear bigger tires.
So.... the choice is yours.... a little lift now and save.... or dive into full bore WITH LOTS OF RESEARCH BEFORE ANY PURCHASES....
