Mine's not an unlimited, but I get a lot of clearance. I'd guess the extra length would bring it down a little, but not a whole lot.

IMO, consider 32s with a 2" lift. You'll see some LJs in the All Jeeps on 32s thread: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f59/all-jeeps-32s-313163/

I have 31"s on my LJ.

As it is right now, there is slight rubbing of the fender flares in front when disconnected. I plan on adding a 2" BDS lift this summer. It will be perfect for the trail riding that I do which includes most everything except heavy duty rock crawling and mud.

Thanks. Most folks on this forum will recommend that you put 32s or 33s on your rig, and I admit it will look better with the larger size tires, but consider how you will actually use your vehilcle off road. I have gone on all kinds of rough high mountain trails in the High Sierra mountains and deserts of California; boulder strewn, washed out, stream crossings, etc., with no problems. Remember, that you can do the Rubicon Trail (in the High Sierra) with 31s. Plus, if you get 32s or 33 inch tires, you will need to regear to properly tackle off road trails, mucho $$$! My stock .373 gears are perfect with 31s.

No rubbing issues at all.




off topic...dang that skid plate sure hangs down low.

Over the mountains and through the woods, across the stream and up the slickrock, down the canyon and over the rocks to nobody's house I go.
