My jeep is a 99 wj with a 2" iro bb lift. I'm running kuhmo kl78 255/70/16. I also have 8k hid highbeams, low beams, and fog lights. I have also de-ambered my tail lights for an updated look. If you are going with a 2 inch lift and don't want any rubbing and no trimming required go with 255/70's. Any bigger a tire would require bumper trimming. Trust me. I crawled this thread for about a week and carefully looked over every 2 inch lift to make my decision.
and on my way home i got waved down by a cop and two others arrived
they told me some one complained that i was on the beach
i told them i was taking pictures and was away from people and i didnt see any signs saying no vehicles on the beach so i didnt think it was a problem
i treated them with respect i got a verbal warning even though they noticed the expired inspection sticker
one even commented on my rims and liked my overall set up
overall not to big of a pain in the A$$
This is my 02 wj it has a 3" IRO lift with a tenecco steering stabalizer and adj front bar currently sitting on 265 70 17 m/t baja atz's I just currently put the lift on ill get some flex pics up when i get a chance
I can finally post in here. 2002 Limited 4.7 102K miles I bought about 5 weeks ago for $5500 + tax and tag. NV 242 TC, Dana 44A with Trac Lock, Dana 30 open.
Tires and Wheels: 31x10.50x15 Goodyear Wrangler Authority On 15x8 3.75 BS Summit Racing "Soft 8s" (No caliper mods necessary to run)
Suspension Mods: 2" Fat Bob's Garage BB, Suspension is otherwise stock (stock shocks, stock bump stops (no bump stop extensions), stock arms, track bar, sway bars etc)
Other Mods: Huge Fender and Bumper Cut Front (3-4" taken off) and Rear (2.25" taken off), inner fender cutting including pinch welds and parts of the unit body. Washer fluid bottle delete, fog light delete (includes cutting the fog light recess down about 3-4 inches) With this amount of cutting it will clear a 35" tire (barely) with 2.5" extended bump stops and just the 2" BB. I still have to finish the front pinch welds all the way up to make another inch of room in the middle to upper part at the cab once I do go up to a 35-37" tire so I can stuff it all the way up without any worry of rubbing even with the wheels turned. Can never have enough room inside the wheel wells.
Before the big fender cut when flexing the rear tires would contact the inside edge of the rear fenders pretty badly because off the 3.75 BS wheel, stock length bump stops and the side lugs on the tires. Now I can stuff a 33x12.50x15 in the rear fenders with stock length bump stops without hitting. I really badly need longer shocks as my down travel is almost 0 in the front and I need discos in the front as well.
Future plans are spartan lockers for front and rear with 4.56 gears. IRO Critical Path 6.5" long arm kit with high clearance long arms, adjustable front and rear arms, IRO adjustable track bar, JKS quicker discos, bar pin eliminators, IRO adjustable rear a-arm, 37x12.50x15 Pit Bull Rocker radials. I am really easy on things (I do not beat on my stuff at all) so I think my stock axles can survive for a long time with the 37s.
Please feel free to PM me if you have any questions regarding my fender cut.
