Thinking about lifting my wk

So I have a 05 jeep wk with 4x4 and the 5.7 hemi with QDll. I have been thinking about lifting itto give it alittle more aggressive look. I was thinking about the 2" rough country lift. But I am also looking for tires. I have no idea about tires. It has stock tires and wheels. I would like to keep the wheels but go a little bigger on the tires. I just not something for a causal off roading that's all. Any suggestions? Is the rough country a good lift? Also what type wear if any this would have on the vehicle? Thanks

Not trying to hi-jack your thread but I have the same vehicle and the same questions. Would 255/75-17's fit with a 2" lift, will I need spacers?

If you have stock rims you will most likely need to get spacers so that the tires do not rub the bolt.

I've got the Rough country 2" lift with 1.5" spacers. The maximum tire size you can run is a 285/75/17. I'm putting on 265/70/17 general grabber AT2's

dont get the rough-country lift.
Go with the OME lift, and PM Kolak on this forum and ask him for a price. He's good!
I went with the OME HD Lift and I wont go back so spacers.
265/70/17 will fit, anything bigger you will need to do a pinch weld.
This also depends on what off-set rims you are using.
