Thanks for the info; Yes indeed, the rims are 18". The issue is that I don't want the tires touching anything on the jeep, this is why i have been reading lately since i am new on the "hobbie". IMO the extra inch will put the tire .5" closer to the jeep fender and then raise the jeep height by .5"When you go any taller than 3" of lift you run in other money expenses. Exhaust spacers or a new driveshaft, longer brake lines and control arms. From what I've read and been told by my dealer is that a 2.5 lift is a very safe lift requiring very minimal or no other components after the lift. I believe you have 18" rims correct?
If thats true...then can we technically say that it will be a 2" lift if i install the same tire size on a 1" larger rim?
