tj with 32's & flat flares... little or no lift?

Hey guys... I'm new to the forum and new to jeeps for that matter. I live on Long Island and have always had sports cars, lowered on big wheels, so I have a different view on what acceptable clearance is than you country boys out there jumping up rocky mountains. I recently purchased a yellow automatic 2006 Wrangler X with 45 k and am in love with it (except for the OD kicking in at 45 going up hill). I quickly became addicted to trolling the forums, is there a help group??? I think i have a problem.....


I have only done minor visual and performance mods so far. The next project i am saving up for is wheels, tires, & shocks. I was thinking of 32x11.5r15 bfg km2 with xenon 4" flats, Eagle 185's, and Bilstein shocks(5100 front & 4600 rear) with 1.25 front coil spacer. Anyone run a similar setup? Anyone got pics of something similar???? Any problems? Are 33x12.5 duratrac's (32.5" actual) way too much? Which gears for it, 4.10, 4.56, 4.88?

I'm also on LI. As for the 33x12.5 Duratracs, mine are almost exactly 33". For everything else, it all depends on how much you're willing to spend. There's a wealth of info on here, try searching for it.

I have 33" wrangler duratracks and I love em. Ride pretty smooth. And the price isn't really bad when talking about tires that look good. I think in all total price is around 800-900

X2
Quietest blocky tires I've ever heard. General consensus is that these are "the tire" for all around performance.

Not quite. I'm 5 minutes away from a town called "Middle Island." I wonder where that could be.

I'm out in St. James and Oceanside on Long Island. I had on my last wrangler 33x12.5 duratracs and they are a great overall tire. On my current wrangler I have 32x11.5 Nankang Mudstars, haven't driven with them yet due to school but they look good!
