I went with a 2.25" Skyjacker BBL with Hydro shocks. and I changed the front isolator pads with new .75" isolator pads. that gave me 3" up front/2.25" in the rear. and I went with Goodyear Duratracs 33x12.50x15. I ordered my tires mounted on Dick Cepek DC2 wheels. the wheels have 3-5/8 backspacing, no rubbing for on-road driving and does good- driving on wooded trails/sand. here's a pic

Just info you, depending on what your gear ratio is, you're going to lose some fuel milage going to the bigger 33" or 32" tires. I have a 2000 TJ like yours with the 4.0L 3speed auto, I lost 2 or 3 mpg. I have 3.07 gears.

No I don't rub anything, and I can make full turns to the steering stops. but I respect my limitations. At this point my offroading is pretty mild, just driving trails in the woods and sandy places, if you're gonna do anything more than that I would get a taller lift. 3" to 4" lift. or stick with the 31x10.50x15's and keep the 2" to 3" lift for good tire to fender clearance.
