i can live without electric.
Bigger tires? i dont know...im already a member of tread lightly. i guess this might happen sooner then i thought....hmmmm

As a WF member, you also get discounts from DTD on tires ($50 off a set of 5). You can also join Tread Lightly (also a forum vendor) for $25 and get a $100 mail-in rebate on certain tires (DuraTracs, don't know the others).
Pretty much a no-brainer to downsize your rims when going to bigger tires, and put the $$ you save into other mods.
Or pay the electric bill. Whatever.

|anonymous6915||are the 15" MB72 rims the cheapest aluminum rim that can be found and still fit the jk?|

|Nanook||Are you wheeling it? 33's should fit with minimal rub. If u are set on a bb lift find a local club or some buddies to put it on. Also, you should be able to get some 15" mb72 rims from discount tire for around $100 ea. They are aluminum, some 15" steelies don't fit. Good luck.|

|gr8fulKID||Didnt want to bore anyone with specifics all too much, but was leaning towards the 33 range... and whichever rims would be cheaper. I just found out the 4x4 place by me has a zone spacer kit for 130, with installation an additional 280. I think they might have a teraflex 2.5 for 260 as well..I was thinking about having locals help me out, but still not sure. Is discount tired direct my best option? Thanks for the replies.|

A couple of suggestions: Install the BB yourself, or get some local Jeepers to help you and bribe em with beer & pizza. That'll save you several hundred dollars right off the bat, and you'll learn some things about your Jeep.
Also, you can buy tires and 15" rims for LESS $$ than buying JUST tires for 17" rims. Unless there's some specific reason you insist on keeping 17" rims, that'll save you another backpack fulla $$.

Cost of Lift,Tires,Wheels?
So I am thinking about doing what I have should have done years ago and lift my JK with a new set up. I don't need specifics, but I would just like to have an idea of some numbers. I like to plan on getting some 2 inch BB and having a shop install it, along with some 33s and the cheapest black wheels I can go with. I have 17inch wheels and from what I have read on here it seems like I'd need new ones. If anyone has any numbers that'd be great. Sorry if this was elsewhere in the forums
