Hey whats up everyone my names Joe and i intend on getting a 08 Jeep X when i get back to the states in June and was wondering if yall could hook me up with some info about Lifts and tires.. i was wanting to do a 2-3 inch lift sumthing that wont change the angle of the drive shaft too much.. what are some good companies that make those size lifts? I was also wondering if i could run a 32x11.5 15 without any rubbing. Thanks for your time
PS what kinda MPG should i expect running a 32?

I can't help you much on the lift or mpg question (I own a TJ, don't tell anyone I was looking in the jk section) :D
I am sure someone will come along and help you out or use the search for jk lifts.

Hey Joe, welcome to WF! If you are wanting to go with 32s, you can likely get by without much lift at all, maybe 3/4" and wheel spacers depending on the wheels. If you do want 2-3", I would suggest a 2.5" BB (budget boost). Daystar and Teraflex are a couple names that come to mind. With a 2.5" BB, you can stuff 35s under the JK.
Rubicons come stock with 32s and you can usually pick some of those up pretty cheap. There are not many 15" wheels for the JK. Without the proper backspacing, the wheel may hit the calipers.
As for MPG, I have no idea and I have 32s, but you could probably look up a window sticker for a Rubicon to find out.

For a RUBI, or a jeep in general with the 32. the rubi sticker i blieves says 18hwy and 14 city. but since i like many others have led in their foot your prob looking at 12 or 13 in the city. Lifts and biugger tires will sacrifice good fuel economy.

if you just want to go 32s look on ebay for somebody that is selling there stockers from a rubicon. they are roughly 32X10.50 and they normally get rid of their wheels at the same time... there will be no rubbing issues at all. with a 3 in lift and the right back spacing you can do 35s. Look through here and find the phone number for Joe from absolute offroad. he knows just about everything
