I've gotten some questions about my picture. It shows the TJ with stock suspension -- no BL or suspension lift at all -- and 31x10.5 BFG MT KM2s. No rubbing of any kind, unless I'm at the absolute max steering articulation in a parking-lot U-turn (and the stock 30x9.5s rubbed then, too). This setup has been perfect for climbing ditches, mudding, and going over trees and stumps on logging trails. Sure, you may need more for rock stomping, but this working vehicle doesn't do that.

I know this is a matter of taste but I like the look and LOVE the functionality of using the stock suspension -- no messing with motor mounts or worrying about drive line vibrations or torque overstress. IMHO, a 31 inch tire is a great look, and nearly the same traction as much larger tires.
