You can do almost a 32" tire on a 4" lift with no trim. If you're OK trimming it's possible on a 4" lift I think but you might want to look at a 6" lift if you don't want to trim. I am sure there are others here that could answer your question better than I can.

Did you look at the lift chart?

Best lift? Custom 3 link up front with triangulated 4 link out back. 33's can be had only with lots of trimming at 4". Trimming still needed at 6" for 33's, unless this is a street queen.

Open ended question on "fitting" 33's.. what width 33? How much wheel offset? How much you willing to trim and do you want to clear when flexed?

Look at Iron Rock Offroad, Rough Country. I think they both have kits for 6". Otherwise, Clayton Offroad is considered the best.

Only IRO or Clayton offer a 6; RC only offers a 4.5 but it is easily raised to 6 with different springs and shocks

Unfortunately, going to 6 or higher adds a bunch more needs than "just" the lift kit.

There is tons of info on this forum if you take the time to search and study up a bit.

The bottom line is the WJ is not the easiest to lift and keep driving "like stock".
