XJ with 4" Lift on 30's?

Hey guys, I've been a lurker on the forum for quite some time now and finally have something I can post about!

I've just ordered a 4" OME lift and am very curious as to what my XJ is going to look like with the 30x9.5's I have on it now because they still have like 60% tread and im not too keen on replacing them just yet.

Thanks!

It will definitely look better with bigger tires but it shouldn't look too bad as is. Here's my previous Cherokee with 31 BFG all terrains. Try selling the current set on Craigslist, I just did that with my new truck.
For reference the ranger has 33x12.50 Goodyear duratracks

Thanks, that doesnt look bad. Im probably going to go up to 32's, the company said i will only be able to fit 31's without trimming but i think 32's wouldnt rub.

Here's my very first Cherokee on 33's with 4.5 rc lift. It fit but rubbed really bad on trails, even with longer bump stops. You should be able to fit 32's fine with minimal rubbing. If you wheel to where you need room to flex you might as well just go 33's and trim the fenders. Just my opinion at least

that looks badass! same color as mine and everything. what backspace were those wheels if you can remember? i dont think minor rubbing on the fenders will bother me too much but i dont want my lcas or anything getting hit.

Also, did you have any problems with vibes with that 4.5? My lift comes with tcase drop blocks but im still worried ill have major vibes because its a late model

I hit one bump that messed up my front bumper but its not that bad, just really pushed out. I bought it as you see it in the picture..I know it had a longer drive shaft and sye, so I can't help you out wether it will shake or not. I don't know about the backspace either but the tires stuck out about an inch from the fender

Exactly what I thought. When I lifted my wrangler i waited to have enough money for both the lift and driveshaft and sye, never ended up needing it!
