ACK. Pulling my hair out over this

Okay, so I got the wheels and tires on, that have been sitting in my mom's garage for a couple months. As I was standing back and admiring the pure beauty that my baby posses I realized that it might look a little funny if I lifted it with this setup.

And I can't go any bigger than 30's because when I tried my friend's 31's on, the 4 banger and automatic tranny didn't like them and couldn't make it past 60mph. Not cool. So 30's are it until I can afford a second vehicle (in the distant future).

The original plan was a 2" BB............

Regearing is always a good idea

and I had 30s with a 2 inch lift on a YJ that didn't look bad, but then they have different flares that take away some of the opening as well.

I guess I should mention that regearing is out of the budget for a while too.

If you can't do it, you can't do it.

depending on the price, I'd get the BB and see what it's like. If you don't like it, chances are you'll be able to sell the BB for the price you paid
