Haha...^^^ What CG3 said also holds true, especially since most tires aren't the size quoted by the mfr. For example, my 35" DuraTracs are really 34" at the PSI at which I run em.

Also, the soft top actually ADDS a couple inches to your rig, as opposed to the hard top.

That said, I've got a 3" lift on 35's. My garage has 82" of clearance, and I fit no problem.

kbwwolf It's about .5" for every 1" of tire size. But the 2.5" lift, depending on the mfr, may well end up being more than 2.5". There are peeps who've installed that size lift and ended up with 3".

Lift/tire math question

So I am trying to wrap my head around the total lift. If I lift my JKUR 2.5 and go with 35 tires to replace the 32's, is the total lift going to be 4.5?
