I was able to get 31x10.50's on with just a 1" Con-Fer Shackle lift. But I would have to agree with the above posts. No lift=30x9.50's

absolutely, and i tell people that everytime. with tired springs 2" shackles give you less than an inch. but the fact remains, most people do it anyway first, and then go from there. thats all i was saying, but thanks for bringing that up, great point since i brought up shackles.

31's may rub, 30 is almost always fine.

its a cheap lift to make your yj look back up to stock again

i think everyone's first yj lift ever was shackles.
