Any lift kits with stock wheels?

My budget is small right now and many things I want to do down the road. Trying to choose what to do first is hard. Who can share pics of their jeep lifted with stock tires? I'm trying to get an idea of how it would look.

Here's mine with a Teraflex leveling kit (2" in front, 1" in rear) with stock wheels/tires but I've also got a winch and bumpers weighing it down a little.

I've since moved on to a Rock Krawler 3.5 kit with 35's.

I was worried having a lift with stock wheels would make it look weird but it doesn't. A 2-2.5" would be good with what I want. Thank you for the pics, y'all have helped my decision making.

They both appear to have stock rubicon wheels and tires.

Yeah a lot of people don't realize that once you add bigger tires you probably need to re-gear your axles so you don't lose performance... so that is an added $500+ for the kit for new ring and pinion gears for the front and rear axles.

Going with a lift first. Is there a noticeable difference between the 2" vs 2.5"?
Also I'm looking at a front bumper that is about 40 pounds heavier than stock. Will that affect the lift any? If so what's the best course to counter it ?

What are the specs on those tires? Did you need Spacers?

How's the ride on road? Is this also your DD? I am leaning towards the 3.5" just not sure I have the funds to do the wheels and tires at this time, but since this will be my DD, I'm not sure if I should hold off and get wheels and tires at the same time.. How long have you ran with the stockers? And how long do you plan to run the stockers? Did you also require spacers? Thanks, sorry for the shotgun questions...LOL appreciate your reply.

If funds are a concern, you need to keep your lift under 3". After that, things start getting expensive. For one, you start running into driveline issues. You're gonna need to change out your drive shafts pretty soon because of the extreme angle.

I'm running a 3.5" Teraflex kit with stock tires in this picture. I swap out my 35" Nitto Mud Grapplers for the stock tires and wheels when making long road trips.
