What size tires can i fit?

Hey guys I am going to upgrade my 31x10.50's to something alittle bit bigger. I cant really give you an accurate size of lift bc its a mut lift. Somewhat pieced together. But it had a 4 inch lift and after my 8.8 i am putting a set of used 6 inch lift springs. But Im not sure how much they sagged. What iw as wondering if I could get measurements maybe from the ground to the top of the fender or something and we can estimate if i can fit 33' inch km2's


1996 5.2 orvis: 6" lift, 33x12.50's, 8.8 rear, t-case skid, gas tank skid, 242

Measure from the center of your hub to the bottom lip of your fender. This should give you an idea on how much lift you have.

Maybe one of the ZJ guys can chime in on what the measurement would be stock so that you can compare.

That's assuming he hasn't cut the fenders at all.

And OP, quick search just turned up that stock ZJ suspension H to F measurement is about 18", so you just need to go out and measure from the center of your hub straight up to the edge of the fender, then subtract 18" from whatever you get.

Do this at all 4 corners.
