4inch suspension 2 inch body 36 inch tires?
i have a 97 tj with 4 inch suspension and 2 inch body lifts wondering if i could put 35 15.50 or 36 inch tires and not rub any clues tips or ideas please let me know

Yes but all depends on wheel backspacing and bumpstops for tire clearance.

Also with your axles and gearing to push the tires. With 35's and bigger you need to regear and upgrade the factory 97rear D35 to a larger axle. Also with 35's and larger you should upgrade the steering and brakes.

i plan to go with dana 60 rear and dana 44 front got them both have to cut em down and put brackets but i want to run like a 4.56 gear and ox lockers in both so i have to wait a while i cant afford the lockers, brackets, gears, and time to do it all yet

I ran 35 with about 6 inches in the front and standard 4.5 in the back. Adjust your bump stops and you should be okay. You might want to go with 4.88's, I had 4.56's and it was good, but I think 4.88 would be better with the 5 spd. I also ran dual 60's.

I 2nd the 4.88's with your AX-15 transmission and 35/36'' tire. Exspecially wide as you are wanting. You will have 5th then. :D
