30" plus. No lift? Possible?

I fellas and ladies, kind of an odd question here, I need larger tires. Stock rollers just won't cut it anymore. Not bad, I've lasted almost 5 months with my 98 TJ 4 banger.

I don't want to go high. I've seen the big lifts and tires. I really don't want that look... Or complication trailing and being way off camber is enough in a stock ride. I've already flopped her gently on her side.

Now, that being said, I would like to run 30" plus tires with little to no lift. Not a lot of cutting or fab, Maybe a 1" body job but that's it. Can I do this? Has anyone else low rides their lift with big rubber? Any suggestions? Ideas? max tire size with no lift?

Thanks in advance guys.
Beardtime.

Highline fenders,tummy tuck, 1" BL. Will have to wait for someone else with more knowledge about the suspension geometry. I have seen people clear 33" skinnies fairly easy with stock coils and moderate body work.

I am currently running 1" mml and bl with a tummy tuck and 3/4" spacer in the front to level it on 31's. big difference over stock...

metal cloak fenders front and 1" BL would get you up to 33s with no cutting.

Ah the power of the goooogle... Thanks for the point in the right direction. I really envisioned more of a stock tj look but this could work.

I have 30" on stock YJ without problems. I don't think a TJ would be any different.

30" all terrains give you almost stock like highway handling, but a little extra edge off road.
