Google does wonders. Lift kits don't affect your gearing, tires do.

My buddy has 32's but rubs on stock finders. If you want 32's on stock suspension get after market flares.

There were a few that mentioned 31's being the proper limit. Unfortunately there are usually fewer that will listen.

I will state for the record that if you have a hard time paying for the tires then you won't be able to afford the extra's they require. I am not even talking about the upgrades to fit them either as gas is not so cheap these days.

This thread was revived from a year ago.. but asking a different question. No sense in posting about the original topic.

Not true. You can put a 7" lift and 31s.

That is a very good point lol. I might have caught that if I was on a PC. You are right though a two in suspension lift and a one inch body lift is aoutabout the cheapest way you can go.

I rubbed the paint off the spring perches disco'd with 31x10.5 on my stock '06 SE. I seem to be one of the only people that has experienced that on this forum. 31x10.5 definitely did not fit. 31x9.5, if anybody makes it, would be fine regardless of factory wheels

Early Sahara TJ's had painted flares? That 99 (above) is the first one I've seen.
