Post up pics of JK with 2.5" lift on 32's

I was wondering if people could post up some pics of their 2 door with a 2.5" lift but only running the stock 32's?

I just ordered a 2.5" lift and plan to eventually move up to 35's but after spending the money it might be a while before I can upgrade the tires as well. I have the stock 32's on my JK and am curious to know how it will look lifted 2.5" with the stock 32's. I know there are some threads showing with 33's but everything I find shows a more aggressive tire as well. I'm curious to know how it looks on 32's with the stock SRA's that are not aggressive looking at all.

If it looks too silly I'll probably wait to install the lift until I got the money saved for the tires as well. That or try to find some used more aggressive A/T's in 33" for cheap on craigslist to hold me over. The lift I have is the TeraFlex 2.5" with Rancho RS9000's

If you have any before and after the lift pics that would be perfect. Thank you in advance

I am also thinking about doing this and have been doing a lot of google searching. I have the 32" mud tire but I came across this pic that may help you out. I think it looks pretty good until you can "upgrade" tires.

This is gonna be my plan as well. I will be ordering my wheels first, swap out my willys, sell that, and buy my lift. I don't see the need to swap out my oem mt's yet since they are still brand new.

I agree it's a great tire that performs well on the trail I need a little more clearance but can't justify taking a loss and getting rid of the tire. The more I look at pics the more I like the look will probably only "upgrade" to 33s when these wear out. What lift are most of you guys going with I am thinking probably rough country bb because if price thoughts?

Just thought I would add to this thread. I got my rough country bb installed so far it has been great no problems, I am really digging the look I like the wheel gap will probably upgrade to a 33 12.5 when these tires wear out or a 285 70 17. But here is a before and after pic! Also running 1.5 wheel spacers as well to widen the stance a little.

I haven't, So far the only thing that's arrives are the Rancho shocks. Hoping to have everything else within the next week or so at the latest. I got tracking yesterday for the wheel spacers and JKS disconnects so those are set to arrive Monday. Still nothing on the TF kit being shipped though.

I think you will be happy with the way it looks I was a little nervous about the tires looking too small and I am sure to some it does but to me I think it looks awesome! Just out of curiosity who did you order from? I ordered my kit from extreme terrain last Friday and it arrived on Tuesday! Just seems like you should have received everything by now?

northridge4x4.com since I had a 10% coupon code from the site which let me get everything cheaper than I could find anywhere else.

Looks great, thanks for posting the photo! I've been battling with the same choice on my 2014 JKUR. In fact, I have both the Rough Country 2.5" BB and Teraflex leveling kit (2" front/1" rear) in my garage until i can decide which to install. I think the teraflex kit will look better if i were to keep the 32s for an extended period of time, but eventually i definitely want to go with 33s or 34s...but how long will that be i'm not sure ?!?!?

Four doors just don't look good unless you get bigger tires than the stock.

Two doors look good no matter what.... Just sayin

The way around that dilemma is to buy a two door. Stock Rubi tires look pretty good. I already own van, didn't want another look alike.

This is my Sport before I changed wheels and tires. These are stock 32's. I first did the lift, Rubicon 2.5" lift and Lund fenders. I then got the 33" MTZ tires and Fuel wheels. But, you asked for 32".
