Default New to Jeeps. Biggest/widest tire I can put on WJ with 3" lift?

I am in process of buying a WJ and want to do a moderate 3" lift. What is the biggest and widest tire I can put on it? I would really like to see pictures of examples.

Thank you

I've seen 32" tires under a 3" lift, but it's pretty stuffed and I wouldn't do it. I think a 31" tire looks about right for a WJ on 3".

I've been looking at getting this kit... whats your opinion on the quality of the kit? Did your customer run into any drivetrain alignment issues that needed to be corrected after the install? (ie bad pinion angle ect...)


You wouldn't happen to have a picture of said customers rig?

Looks nice... same color as mine too. Black rims are sexy too.

How does the jeep drive? would a steering stabilizer be a good investment at this level lol?

Looks good. Anyone have pictures of a WJ with 32s? I'd love to get a visual before dropping all the money on it.

Also what is a good way to calculate truck tire sizes to a normal size tire? (example: what would a 32x11.5x15 be in a normal size)

What is the calculation for that?

i installed a skyjacker stabilizer when i did the kit..it drives great and the higher rate springs take the floatyness out of the truck
