Nvm their 34's top I finally found the number kinda worn but it's 33 or 34's would. 3' lift be enough????

Whats your budget for spending on suspension and other parts that involve lifting your jeep?
What kind of Wrangler do you have?

If they are in fact 33's then 3" lift would be a good height on a TJ.


OLD MAN EMU LIFT

No I have a yj 95 I'm trying not to spend alot but only want to lift it a little I have 32's right now on stock suspension so I figured 2 inch lift would clear 2 more inches of tires

I hope you don't have a D35. It's going to cost a good bit to run that size. New rear end, gears front and rear, better steering components ect....

I wouldn't just throw those tires on. You might be a little "in over your head" with them. I would do a little more research and reading. Theres quite a few things that need to be addressed besides just lifting the vehicle higher to make the tires fit. Most of them have been stated in the other thread.
And its not just about making the tires fit in the wheel opening. Your tires, the jeeps body, and the suspension all need to work together. Your tires may "fit" but what about room for wheel travel and suspension flex when driving or off road.

First thing first, a lift in order to fit the tires comfortably.

Gears and axles should either be replaced or upgraded. You can completely swap front and rear diffs to bigger ones. Or new gears, with appropriate carriers, and chromoly axles could also be a path to go down.

Steering components like tie rods, stabilizer, and even the steering box should be upgraded.

The brakes don't NEED to be upgraded but it would be a good idea eventually. My TJ stops just fine on 35's with stock brake system.

Bumpstop length will need to be changed according to your suspension setup.

I'm sure I have left out plenty of stuff but those are a few things that popped into my head right away.

Like I said, search, read, absorb...

A 3" lift would work but I say you get a 4" lift

I ran 37s with a 3.5 lift, and minor fender trimming.
I'm now running 40s with the same lift, and major fender trimming (rear) and some aftermarket front fenders.
