That's what I saw with mine.

so pull the springs out, put a 32" tire on the hub and cycle the axle to full bump and full flex and see how much bumpstop extension is needed.

the flaw in this logic has to do with the amount the axle travels during flex. It's not really a perfectly linear relationship as one would think.

31s on stock wheels will suck inside the fender (the steel fender, not flares). a wider tire & wheel with less backspacing pushes the tire out past the lip of the steel fender, so now the tire doesn't tuck inside the stock fender.

combine that with longer shocks and now as one tire stuffs into the fender flare, the opposite side tire drops further down due to new longer shocks. This actually tilts the stuffed tire further into the fender. Your avatar is a perfect example.

O_M_Jeep When I bought my Jeep it had 31"s on stock suspension with no trouble, I don't see why you couldn't run 32's on a 2" BB. A 1.25" body lift is usually around $100 and takes about an hour to install (barring any trouble of course) and would be well worth the extra clearance, but not needed.

32s with a 2"

Anyone see any issues with 32" tires with a 2" spring lift? Or will a BL be needed?
