also can you put 35" on stock jeep???
Whatever you want your Jeep to be is where you start. Everyone is different. I started lift and tires. 33" tires, quickly realized I wanted 35's. Didn't waste my time on a "light bar" and got a steel bumper w/ stinger, winch, rear tire carrier, re-gear to 5.13, front locker, diff armor, rock rails, a-pillar lights, adjustable control arms, driveshaft's...etc....I wheeled my ***** pretty tough so I leaned more towards rock crawling mods, function over form.
I would go 15" wheels if you are going with 33's. The costs of new 15" wheels and 33" tires will cost about the same as 33" tires for the 17's alone. As far as looks that's all you buddy. It's like going on an internet forum and asking strangers what you should wear to work, you just don't do it.
You "can" put 35's on a stock Jeep, but if you have 3.21 gearing it will be horrid (new engine or not), you will also need a new tire carrier eventually if you have a 35" spare. It is also advisable to AT LEAST get inner c-gussets to keep them from bending.
