Most likely a 20x10 with 35" Mud Grapplers. Owner must REALLY hate his tailgate! Stock carriers, 20" wheel, 35" mud grapplers, not even any Daystar bumpstops = popped welds and tweaked hinges in no time!

4fit's talking about the Daystar bump stops that replace the stock ones on the tailgate when you mount a wheel with less backspacing than the stock wheel's 6.25".

Without the Daystars, you can't snug the wheel up against the tailgate, which means that, with a tire that size and weight, it's gonna bounce around the first time he hits a solid pothole at the mall, and rip the welds in his tailgate to shreds.

Capisce?

You can run 35's on a stock Jeep with flatties and no lift if you want. Better to get a 2.5" lift, though.

A 17 on 35 wouldn't look *too* hateful :P I begged my brother to stick with 17" wheels on his truck but he got new knuckles for the IFS that require an 18" wheel

truck JEEP truck JEEP.......not too concerned about what's on a truck. The only time I've seen 20" rock stars actually LOOK good were with 40" tires on a MOAB video.
