I'm sure I'm gonna get some flak for this but I have an 03 JGC Limited (2wd) so I decided lifting it was kind of useless. I got a good deal on some late model wrangler rims (18 x 7.5) and was hoping to find some widish, aggressive tread, but smallish sidewall tires to fit them. Anyone have any suggestions on where I can start looking? Thanks in advance.

Yeah, aggressive low profiles is kind of an oxymoron. My suggestion is to find a good tire shop local to you and tell them what you want . I'm sure they are out there. With that outta the way . Why would lifting a 2wd be useless? Have you ever wheeled your wj ? They do pretty damn good and in some cases better (with good tires and weight in the back) than a 4x4.its all in how you drive it.

True Jeep friends may rib ya a little, but with real good mud tires and a posi rear, you will hang will all but the most hardcore!

Lift it, put some mud tires on it and go have a great time! But remember:

Welcome from VA Beach! I's sure the tires are out there you're looking for. I can usually find anything using the web and Google. Good Luck on your new adventure!

Nothing wrong with a lifted 2wd rig. Stick a locker in the back and it'll go most places except uphill in reverse lol.

I wheeled one for a couple years.







Kept up with the big blazer easily...

About a million years ago my uncle issued me an amc general M151A2, and I drove that little thing all over Fort Lewis. The only time I ever put it in 4WD was when I had beaten on it so bad that the rear axle shafts fell out, so I put it in 4WD and ran it like a front wheel drive 'till I got it back to the motor pool. You'd be surprised at the places you can go if you're pulling on both rear wheels.

It's your vehicle and it's up to you. You want a low rider, do it. You want a trail Jeep, do it. But ask yourself: what are you going to use it for the most?

I would definitely like the option to hit some trails. It being my daily, however, most of the driving will be on road. I prefer the lifted look, plus being in the north east the snow is knocking ng on our door.
