I'll bet all the money in my wallet that you'll rub like a b**** on either of those sizes. Even with a BB, I wouldn't go bigger than a 31x10.5.

Now, if you plan on doing a lift later and can hold on offroading til then, you could get a larger size like a 32 or 33, but I imagine you'll rub inside the fender well, and a lot on the bumper even sitting.

You could always ignore what I have just said and give it a shot.

Reattached the rear view that hail stones knocked off and tried to get out a few dents. Wasn't such a good idea. It looked so good for a 13 year old.

... with the Auto I get 10-11 in town with 31's and 3.55s



Put some aftermarket fogs on the ARB so I could use my 3000k HID's again. Once I put the driving lights I will have a lot of light on the front end !

Should be fine with 33s. Might have to trim a little bit.. but that's about it.

Finally put on the k&n air intake and 31x10.50 tires on ECCO rims from my old TJ. Looks good. Will have to post pics when I get my # up.
