Re: gearing and tires
I am going to assume you are talking about your 85 CJ...if its for your YJ then one of the other guys will have to give you an answer..
First, you need to see what diff ratio you have. My 84 had stock 3.31 and when I whent to 32's I was hurting in 1st gear....driveable...but hurting. If you have 3.73 then you will be in better shape. 32's will clear as long as you don't want to do any serious off roading. Other factors include what wheel your using. If they are not stock wheels, then the offset on them may push you out of the wheel well, causing more rubbing.
You'r now stuck in that gray zone that we have all been in...decisions...decisons...and $$$$
First, decide on how you want to drive the jeep..off road?.. then save some bucks and go with 33's, 3" spring lift, and 4.10 gears....4.10's will work with 32 to 33's just fine and you still have decent engine RPM on the fwy in overdrive (I'm assuming that you have the T5 tranny).
If you'r mostly street driving it then go with 32's and either the 1" body lift or maybe 1.5" shackel lift....(yes, I know...I'm permoting a body or shackel lift...forgive me)...unless you have the bucks...then do a real lift...putting in new springs is easier than doing a body lift.
