I'm not sure they would fit but they would look good if they do.

Highly doubt it
You need 4 inches of lift to run 265-75-16s plus regear to 4.10s
Now that is a spacer style lift, KJs are known to sag over time ( example one rolled in here with 75,000 miles and was sitting over 1.5 inches lower than stock) Only way to lift one and do it right and have clearance is a full spring lift.
With that lift you may try and run 245-75-16s , they may fit depending on sag, but not 265-75s

Hope you have not already bought it
For what it costs you could have 4 springs paid for and then just need front and rear shocks

will it rub harder and more likely in front of the wheel well? because i have a smittybilt tj bumper on the front with the stock front bumper completely gone. so im not worried about the front rubbing. and i know ill have to cut the unibody in the back of the wheel well.

DO NOT CUT the unibody in the rear part of the wheelwell, just bend it over with a large hammer after heating the liner to move it out of the way while you bend it over .
Again if you want to run 265-75-16s you have to have more lift I don't care what kind of bumper etc. There is not enough room in the wheelwells to run that sixe with one or two inches of lift. ( which is what you will have with sagged springs and a spacer lift)
Plus then you're still looking at regearing
With 245-75-16s you'll most likely get by with pounding over the pinch weld and using that lift , will be close but doable

I know I am a little late to the conversation but I have the 3" Rough Country lift on my '06 Liberty and am running 265/70/17 with no problem at all. 265/70 is what Rough Country says the 3" lift was designed for.

All that needs done is a little trimming of the Wheel Liner for the front wheels when turning.
