One more dumb question, what if for now I don't go with the suspension lift and just lift the springs with a 1" spacer? Am I compromising anything? and If I get a 1" spacer and I measure it and it measures 1" will this lift the jeep 1"?????????????
There are ****loads of people debating this topic and it's driving me nuts....

Price depends on where you're at. Like I said, shipping sucks. If you're close enough, I'd deliver for $750. Anyway, these wheels and tires will fit just fine on a stock jeep with no lift. If you disconnect the swaybar you might rub the flares offroad, but I doubt it. I never rubbed. You can get the spacers and yes they will lift the jeep that much. You may want to consider longer shocks depending on how big of a spacer you go with.

I'm interested in your wheels...shoot me an email at msmeyer@pol.net. What is the the exact size of the rims and tires, how is he condition, how much rubber left. Thanks! Mike

What's a 31" rim? Are you mounting a John Deer tire to that?
