Hey, my boyfriend and I are new to this :) question...
We both have yj Wranglers, his is a 95 and mine is a 92. His is all done We've added a 4 inch lift kit with 33's new paint job and all . Mine is just in the process of where i want to get it at and im indecisive.

I've never heard of anyone actually being "done" with a Wrangler build.
You can fit 31's on stock springs but you may occasionally rub a fender. And you will definitely rub the springs in a turn without spacers or backing out the steering bump-stops. You may want to consider a modest 2.5 inch lift. It will allow you to run your 31's safely.

no lift 30x9.50 tires on stock wheels. rubs at reall tight turns.
Stock YJ's are few and far between these days. You have a blank palette there waiting for you to do something great. A stock YJ may not look as impressive as one with a 4" lift and 33's, but it's still a Jeep and therefore part of the family.
Take your time building it and above all, have fun.

Thanks, I love it. i got it for new years and dont want a 2010 one that i would never put in mud. but i dont have little tires either there not stock uhm 28 or 29s i believe it doesnt look bad im gonna soon post pics but i love the low and mean look just trying to figure out what to do with it without losing its ride either.
If you want to maintain streetability, I'd say 2.5 inch lift with 31s. If you have a 6 cylinder, you may need to regear eventually with anything above 31s.
My cousin had 33s with a 4" lift on his TJ for quite some time, but after many hard off road excursions, his local shop (who was supposed to do an alignment for him) told him his Jeep was not suited for street use because the Jeep was so beat up underneath lol. He went down to 30's last week, but he rolled his Jeep on the road recently because he had to swerve out of the way of another car.
My friend has 31 BFGs on his TJ. For a 4 cylinder Jeep, that thing does good off road. Better than my stock YJ lol.
My stock 28s suck.
Btw a 2.5 inch lift with 33s would be a tight fit. If you want 33s, id go 4 inch lift
