InfernoGirl As long as the bs is correct on the wheels for a 12.5" tire, you should be fine. I'd go with the 2.5" lift + the 1.25" body lift to have enough clearance for the tires. You'll love the Duratracs... Join Tread Lightly - Home and buy the tires by Friday and you'll get the $100 rebate on the tires. You might look at some of the homemade spare supports made by some members here to save a few hundred bucks on the tire carrier.... Highrock is pretty pricey, nice, but expensive... I've seen a couple of pics where guys have mounted supports on the bumper or hitch to bear the weight of the spare, saving the tailgate hinges.... Just a thought

Need your opinions on lift/tire setup

Hey everyone. I've been looking at different lift options and tires, etc for awhile and I think I have narrowed it down to this set up. Tell me what you think about it and and let me know if I have over looked something or might run to problems down the road.

Okay first of all here is what I have now:
2004 Jeep Wrangler Sport
4.0L I-6
Dana 44 Rear with LSD
3.73 gears
Tow package
15" Granite Alloy GA9 wheels - Granite Alloy GA9
Everything else that I can think of is bone stock.

So that is my starting point now here is what I want to do to it:
Either Rough Country 2.5" Coil Lift - Rough Country 2.5"
or Rough Country 2.5" Coil Lift w/1.25" Body Lift - Jeep TJ Suspension Lift
Rough Country 2.5" Coil Lift w/ 1.25" Body
33x12.50xR15 Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs (5) - Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs
HighRock 4x4™ Oversize Tire Carrier - HighRock Oversized Tire Carrier

I know it may not be the "best" set up but I am on a high school student part time job budget. So what are you all's thoughts on this set up? Potential problems down the road? Is there something missing that I have over looked? Thanks for your input
