recon4christ I'm running 32'' on a 3'' lift. I'm using my stock wheels so I get some rub on control arms when turning fully in either direction. Might put on spacers.

RatherBNarizona not sure if this helps,
heres my 3 inch lift with 32's

chiro2736 I am sure Tripp will pitch in some where along the line. I vote get the lift run it for a while, work the kinks out while you have the regular tires on there. Then you will know what is a suspension problem, (i.e. noises and vibes), and it's not just the new tires.

I have been running a 4inch lift with 28's for almost a year now. waiting on the tires to wear out.

Good luck, post before and after pictures!

x2 with getting the lift first. And yes, imho, it will look a little odd with the smaller tires and the 3-4'' lift untill you get 33's. A couple other things to consider.1) do you have 4 or 6 cyl? ..2) what gear ratio do you have now? I have a 6cyl TJ that came with a 307 ratio, 5speed tranny. I re-geared to 410's because I'm 33's. I got performance my performance back.

branty I don't think you will get the look you are going for, but I don't think it would look bad enough to not do it. Many people have to do their projects in steps to make it affordable. If you were looking at 6 inches or so, I would say wait for the new tires, but with 3-4" you should be fine until you can save up for the new tires. Go for it! It will also give you a greater understanding and appreciation for how your Jeep handles and reacts with various combinations of lift and tire sizes.

ygohome personally, it wouldn't look goofy to me. I drove around a long time with 3-4" of lift and 31" tires. I've had people ask me if I planned for bigger tires, but theyd also say the jeep looks great.

getting bigger tires before the lift is like putting the cradle before the horse.
