Stock 1997 Wrangler - HELP?

What's the largest tire I can run without damaging the drive-train?

It will mainly be an on-road daily driver but I'd like it to be able to handle rocks if need

With stock 15" wheels you can run a 31x10.50R15 easily. This is about as large as you'll want to go without some sort of lift.

Personally, I wouldn't be too concerned with my tire size having an effect on my drive-train until I get into the 33 to 35"+ tires and even then, it would really depend on my stock gears. Different TJ models have different gears and some can handle larger tires better than others.

All TJ models should be able to handle a 31" tire with ease.
