i been kicking around the idea of throwing a set of 17" jk rubi rims on my xj. has anybody else thought of doing so? i know i will need adapters for them to work- which is the only thing holding me back. i found a nice deal on 5 rims and new bfg mts on them for cheap. i think they would compliment the lift im getting nicely. would 3" be enough to clear them? i believe they are just shy of 32s..
Well if you are running 32's right now I see no reason that they wouldn't work.

I put a set of 05 Rubicons on my 91 XJ earlier this year. I didn't use any spacers and until I mounted a larger tire, I didn't need the lift.
Here what it looked like the day I bought the wheels:
Here's what it looks like now with a 2" lift, new tires, new paint, etc...
Those tires are just under 32" and I haven't had any problems yet. Granted, I don't do a lot of serious off roading, but it has been on the trail a few times since adding those wheels and tires with no problem.
