Want to run 32x11.50x15 What size Lift?

I currently own a 2000 Sahara and want to be able to put on 32's. Do I need a lift? If so how much do I need to lift it? I probably just want to do a suspension lift if possible. And what would the cost be on average? Thanks a lot

You need to at least do a 2" BB. It will give you the clearance. Different opinions tell you whether or not it will work comfortably or not. some will also suggest a 1" BL with it also. I'm planning on 2" BB with 33's. maybe a 1" BL also. Any kit you can find online if you get the right shocks with will give you the lift you want.

Yea a 2" Budget Booster or "spacer lift" will do the job for you. You can pick up a kit for about $220 inluding shocks, or slightly more if you upgrade to premium shocks.

Get the nicer shocks I am starting to wish I did. I just learned that my Es3000 are among the stiffest for jeeps. The BB will work fine for 32's that is what I Have. I wish I had done a 2.5" spring lift though.

and if you want to go to the cheaper route, You can get the spacers on ebay for anywhere from 60.00 buck for just the spacers to 100 that comes with the BPE shock extenders and rear bumpstops.

I had a 1.75" daystar coil spacer lift that came with extended bumpstops and I used the stock shocks and had no problems clearing 32's. The kit was a little over $100.

Look into the OME lift, Its a nice way to go. Add a body lift later if the tires rub.

Do a 2.5" lift like the OME. Gives you another 3/4" over a typical BB. Should be enough to run 32s. I think someone saw the OME for around $500 at Northridge.

No doubt that OME makes a great kit, but he MIGHT not want to blow $600 bucks (plus possibly paying someone to install it) to fit 32' tires... BB's are cheap and pretty easy to do yourself.

If the Jeep is also a DD, keep in mind the higher lift you go with the stock control arms, the rougher the ride will be. I'd lift enough to get good clearance with 32's but no more than necessary. You have to find a happy medium between clearance/looking cool and keeping a lower center of gravity/good road manners. One offsets the other unless you go to a longarm kit which will ride better than a 3" or higher short arm kit.

I was in your boat...

1.75" Spacers (w/ stock shocks) --- Rubbed when disconnected


1.75" Spacers w/ 1" BL --- No rubbing issues (sorry not the best pic, but only ran this setup for about a month)


Current Lift (See sig) --- Amazing package! Upgrading to 33s shortly...

How do you feel about the 32's. I would like to have 33's but it's a DD and am not planning on more than the BB and shocks.

If you disconnect the anti-sway bar your tires will most likely try to eat your fenders with just a 2" BB. Add a 1 to 1-1/4 inch BL and you should be OK.
