tallzdatank when i got my tj it was on 32s. while off roaring once I rolled one off the bead and damaged the sidewall trying to fix it on the trail. when i tried to replace it, the one 32" tire was going to cost me almost $300. where a whole set of 5 31x10.50s cost me a $550. it could just be that it was an uncommon size around here and nobody stocked it. but I would recommend just doing 31s. since swapping ive noticed very little decrease in clearance if any, and my 2.5 feels a little better on the highway.

obiefox For just 32's and light off roading, I would just stick with a 1 inch body lift.

Hell, just put the 32s on and figure it out later. Exactly which "32's" are you looking at?

Jerry Bransford To run 32x11.50 tires, you only need aftermarket wheels with less backspacing & a 1" to 2" suspension lift or 1" body lift.

The factory wheels have too much backspacing (5.25" to 5.5") which means they position a tire that is wider than 10.5" so close to the springs in the rear that the inside sidewall could rub on the spring perch. Nearly any aftermarket wheel will have less backspacing which would allow a 32x11.50 tire to be mounted. Wheels with 3.75" to 4.5" of backspacing (which is not the same as 'offset') will do it.

With a 2" suspension lift, you may or may not need a small amount of t-case skidplate drop. 1/2" or 5/8" worth of spacers between the frame & t-case skidplate should be enough to eliminate any vibes a 2" suspension lift might (or might not) cause.

What do I need for 32"s

I want to get some OME coils and probably some Rancho 9000s shocks. Ive been reading about custom lifts on here. What else is needed. This is my DD. Light offroading mainly just driving to the deer stand. thanks
