stock tire size vs bigger tire size

Hey, I'm a complete n00b when it comes to tire stuff. I was hoping someone could help me out.

I have an '04 LJ, totally stock everything, no lift. I'm currently running stock tire size, 30X9.5-15...but I'd like to move it up to a 31X10.5-15. Can I do this without having to change anything else?

As the poster above said, yes. 31X10.5-15 is the largest size you can put on a stock TJ or LJ. I have this size on my LJ and there are no problems.
