295/70/18 with 2.5 lift or higher

Pictures please!!! Need to what what it looks like and how it rides. Also would like to know what's your mileage. I'm aware it won't be great because we drive jeeps. Just wondering because other than the amount of off-roading I do, I also use this vehicle to travel and use everyday use.

This isn't "exactly" what you're looking for, but it's close.

295/70/17 with a 2.5" lift.



Mileage will vary. What gears to you have?

I have 4.10's and average 16.5 on the highway and about 14.5 around town.

It rides better than stock once you get the tire pressure dialed in. The tires are Nitto TrailGrappler MT's. They are an e-load rated tire (stiff, 10-ply sidewalls) so proper tire pressure is key to a good ride. I run about 29 PSI on the street.

My engine is the 3.8 v6. I don't know how to tell what gears you have

You can either check the build sheet if you have it, or you can call the dealer with your VIN and they could tell you...or, I think somewhere you can register with your VIN on Jeep.com and it'll tell you what equipment the Jeep had when it was built.

You VIN is in multiple places: you can check your registration paperwork, it's inside your drivers side door on a sticker, or if your outside looking into the windshield on the drivers side - you'll see a small plaque at the bottom of the windshield.

Dealer should be able to tell you. Might be easier to just take a ride down there and do it face to face (easier than calling). They might even be able to help you out and get you a build print out. Also, they may be able to help on getting you squared away on the jeep.com site.

I found what gears I had in my owners manual. Look it up great stuff. Hope this helps. I have 09 jk with 3.73 gears 3.8 v6 with 2.5" lift and 295x65x18 tires. I get 19.5 on highway and like 14 around town. Not bad IMO!

Forgot to ask, did you need to put spacers on the wheels after the lift was installed?
