I've looked at my WJ, and feel that with a BB I'd have plenty of room to clear 32's on the street, but off road I'm sure they'll rub. I just picked up a set of UC springs to go on top of my BB, and plan on going with 32's once these 31's wear out. I'm sure I'll rub a bit offroad, but I don't mind some minor trimming.

I'm a volly. I run with Colonial Park Fire Company just outside of Harrisburg, PA (state capital). I also run with a small volley company in western PA when I'm home visiting my parents/friends on the weekend.

It'll rub like hell when backing up and turning at the same time. I used to run that setup. Unless, of course, you remove the front bumper. Normal street driving you should be okay, just be careful in reverse.

That looks really good. I was thinking that I would run 32's on black planted Rubi rims with a BB and UC springs, now I know thats what I want to run. Looks really good. What shocks did you run with you BB, and where you happy with them?

zj bolt pattern is 5x4.5 which the older Rubicon wheels and tires will fit, but only a 31 Goodyear m/t

wj bolt pattern is 5x5 just like many of the newer jeeps today.

and i had the skyjacker BB lift now i have a 4 inch zone lift, which im pretty satisfied with.

I really like the way this looks, I bought the wheels and tires today, I low balled the guy to 400 and im extremely happy. I get some pretty nasty rub when in reverse but ill be doing some trimming. Wonderbrd937 how much did you cut off your bumper? do you have any pics and is there a write up on it?? Ill throw some pics up tonight of what the heep looks like now. Thanks again everyone for the advice
