If you don't want to cut the rear, 32's

Anything over a 32 and disco'd you'll need to move the washer bottle or you'll eventually rip it out. Especially with a 4 or 4.5 BS 8 in rim
Or you can extend bumpstops to severly limit uptravel, but what's the point of lifting it?

A narrower tire like 10.50 or 11.50 will help, but mine are 11.50 and rubbing.

Or, use a 16 or 17 rim with closer to stock BS, but wider and you'll rub control arms and inner wells.

WJ has a ridiculously small wheel well. Sucks to be us!

Yea I know lol. I think Ill stick with the 3" lift with the 32x11.5 15s. Ill still install the fender flares to gain that extra bit.
