I was wondering if 31x10.5 BFG all-terrains would fit on a completely stock 97 TJ. I am planning on eventually lifting it...so just for clearance what would be the best lift on an extreme budget. I was thinking a 2 inch suspension or a 1 inch body, and how hard are they to do yourself? Thanks!!
I put 31x10.5 BFG A/Ts on my 97 TJ and did some moderate off-roading with no problems with rubbing. You should go to a lift for anything larger. Check any 4x4 site selling wheels and tires and they usually have a lift to tire size guide for you.
I just added the Rancho Rockcrawler 2.5" lift for added height which makes a world of difference over some terrain and ricks that I needed just that little extra to get over without bouncing on my rocker guards.

Re: 31x10.5s on 97 TJ no lift
As has already been said yes they will fit. I do have two things to add though from experience.
1. You will rub on the lower control arm when turned hard over unless you.
a. turn out the stops
b. purchase offset wheels (American Racing AR-767 can be had for about $50 a piece.)
2. You will rub quite a bit especially if you have your swaybars disconnected you will especially notice it in the rear.
