moe 2.5" springs and 1.25" body will let ya clear 33's so u should be plenty good on 31's.

I have Rough Country on mine, not a problem at all and I use, abuse, stretch my suspension.. I ordered a 2.5" spring kit for a Tj with a 4.0 (i have a 2.5) but I'm runnin 33s and have plenty of clearance..

I think the 10.50 on an 8 inch wheel won't correctly fit. Or atleast if you air down you could ruin the bead in the tire when wheelin.

You can go with 11.50 or 12.50 easily with an 8 inch wheel. you'll need proper backspacing for the 12.50

crikeyjeepturtles jake, if you wanna go with 31s you can get the tires first and then get a 2 inch spacer lift or vice versa. you don't necessarily need the body lift too, but you may want it down the line

jeepjake711 I plan on it. Gotta get some tires and a lift. Not sure what I want to do first. I wanna run 31" tires but not sure about list size yet. Thinking 2.5" and maybe a 1" body lift. It's so hard to decide on what to get cause one person will love something and another will hate it. Any opinions are welcome.

im new here!

Well I put myself in a bind and picked up a decent jeep imo. I picked up a stock 1 owner 01 sport 5 speed. It's got a newer soft top and full doors (id rather have half doors but oh well) its got 100,000 on it but drives pretty damn good. I had a lifted big tire yj about 10 years ago so its a little different having a little more in the cockpit. Now I have to figure out what type of lift and tires to go for. It's my daily driver so I don't wanna get too crazy. My yj had a 2" body and 4" suspension lift with 33X14.5 super swampers and I love the way it looked. Anyways just wanted to introduce myself and say woohoo I got me another jeep! Any suggestions or tips are welcome. I'm also in Arlington heights if anybody is close to me Lmk. Thanks again.
