Jeep XJ 6.5 inch lift with different tire sizes

hey guys right now my xj has a 4 inch lift on 31 KM2's. however i wanted to get a new lift thinking a 6.5 inch lift. only problem is the KM2's i have still have 90 percent tread. I know it would look silly on a 6.5 inch lift but i wanna see how ridiculous it would look as i would like to wear down these tires before getting 33's.

I just dont have the money to upgrade all at once. Thanks in advance

I like what Green said, it's the right thing to do.

my lift right now is pretty beat up. the springs are sagging hard and it is limiting me when i am wheeling. i am even rubbing on the front tires

buy what you want when you want. if you want to run a new 6.5" lift on your current tires, do it. i ran 5" on 29's for about 2 years. used it as a DD and wheeled it like that. no complaints. why wait for 33's when you can enjoy having a good lift sooner? whats it matter if is simply LOOKS goofy for a bit? it doesnt

heres my jeep. about 6" with 33's


Completely stock, and keeping it that way...

My POS

I dont think 6.5 lift on completely stock, uncut fenders on 31s would be THAT bad. I say buy the lift and do it.
