I say do it right and go 3.5 and get 31's.

I wish I didn't go budget boost.

It's falling apart, and rides pretty bad offroad.

Maybe do sumthin like OME packs and a small shackle and up front get some heavy duty coils and 2" spacer. Maybe net you around 3" and go with 31s plus less trimming when you go to 33s.


I vote 30s cuz your in college and no money LOL. Like me but I freaking went with 32s LOL.

well i wouldn't consider me "broke". the only thing i pay for is gas, whatever i do with my gf, and the mods to my jeep so the cash isn't the problem. it whether im man enough to run 31s with 2" of lift.

if u arnt broke u should try to save up some nd get an actual full lift kit .. with the budget boost type systems u might want to end up going higher quickly lol go for the 31s forget about the 30s its a waste of time

You know what I will say..........33's if you plan to re-gear soon and upgrade your steering, C-Rok inner and outer steering reinforcement braces ($100 or so) and at least a ZJ V-8 tie rod upgrade ($80-100, new parts). If it's gonna be a while, then 31s. I know 31s will fit fine on a 2" lift and do more than you think it will offroad.

Oh, I would get new shocks too. My ~2" lift rode like crap with stock shocks.

There is no problem with what you have picked out for lift. I wish I went with the OME packs instead of stock ones because i will have to take them apart to put an AAL into it when I go bigger.

Are you planning on keeping the flares on? If you plan on trimming go for the 31's. I see 31x10.5's all the time and I wish I had gone with them. Not sure how mileage would be though.

Don't waste money on 30's, make the commitment and do whats needed to run 31's.

Not exactly. He's getting spacers up front and the OME packs out back. Now if we were talking the OME "kit", then I would agree with you.
