Another size tires and lift question

Hey guys I know you've probably seen this question before but can't really find a exact answer. So I have a 2001 grand cherokee 4.0 2wd wanting to get a bb and the biggest size mud or a/t tires on my stock rims that will make minimal or no trimming! I occasionally go in the woods with it to hunt but I know it's 2wd just wanting to give it a better look! What bb should I get? I was looking at Goodyear wranglers how are those? What do you guys recommend I want it to have a meaty tread that will look nice. Shocks also have 160000 miles on them should I get new ones?!

I was looking at the dura tracks but seem a little pricey

Look at the "the ultimate wj grand cherokee buyer's guide" in the sticky section there's a chart for lift/tire combos on there. Don't know much about the goodyear wranglers, but i know the duratracs are pretty popular, so cant help much there. And for the budget boost the most popular are the 2" coil spacers. You can get a set for $100 is you look around and sometimes they sell in the classifieds for cheaper.

I would get shocks if I were you. Bilstein 5100's are probably the nicest shocks you can put on. I am going with a BB lift when the weather is warmer. I already have the parts. A 29 or 30 inch tire is about the biggest you can go without trimming.

I had the Duratracs on my ZJ. Loved Them! They were great for my terrain here in central MN. Their winter handling impressed me the most as most off-road style tires really lack in the snow/ice condtions. I will be getting them again when it comes time to lift my WJ.

If it works, it works...do it for you.

Trim it!!! Im running 32s" with a bb with no rubbing. I bet I could fit 33s" but it wouldn't look right and it would rub on corners. Don't waist money on name brand rubber. check out treadwright.com for cheap quality retread tires instead.
