Can anyone guess the lift/tire size on this Jeep?

I just happen to like this lift/tire combination and around tax refund time would like to do this to my TJ. I've tried contacting Xenon (can't even get a telelphone #!) about it. I'd like to know if anyone can take a educated guess on what lift (suspension/body) this vehile has, along with what size tires those appear to be. I have a few other pic's I've dug up on the net if anyone needs to see closer pic's. I'd also like to find out who makes those wheels if possible. IF anyone can help I'd appreciate it. Thanks

Re: Can anyone guess the lift/tire size on this Jeep?

I would guess 4" lift and 32" or 33" tires. No idea about who makes those spoke wheels. Just a note though, most of that extra stuff, like the wide flares, molded bottom step and molded front bumper is mostly just for show. That stuff wouldnt last much more than a day on seriouse trails without substantial damage.
Good luck, in your search

I would guess it's a 3" lift, looks like 32 or 33's, like the post above said. I also agree about the bodywork. I personally don't like it, and it would be a definite trail victim!

Probably the 32-33 size and I'm guessing the backspacing/ width of the tires is pretty wide to fill out the flares. As for that body garbage, that's stuff I'd see on a jeep that's a street cruser not a trail rig, you could probably get trail flares, hd front and rear bumpers, rocker skids, and maybe a limited slip for the price of all those just for looks things.

My guess would be that the Jeep has 32's and 3" of lift.

Re: Can anyone guess the lift/tire size on this Jeep?

It looks to me that is has a 2 inch body lift and 32's. I decided on what i am going to do with my tax return. i am going to get a pair of swamper 34's x 9.50 x 15. I put a pair of 36 x 14.50 on my drivetrain this weekend and it was just too much. That is too big of a tire for my 63 drive train. The 34's will be perfect.

Re: Can anyone guess the lift/tire size on this Jeep?

It looks to me like 2" suspension spacers and 31" tires. There just isn't enough meat on that tires to be much bigger, and there is still tons of room left in those wheel-wells. Anyone who'd blow that much cash on impracticle bumpers/flares like those would probably skimp on the suspension mods and run 31s because they look kinda big and the 4-cyl under the hood just cant turn anything bigger with the stock gearing...

For comparison, this is a set of 33"s on a 98 TJ, with 3" of TeraFlex lift, I DONT BELIEVE IN BODY LIFTS! I still say that red TJ has 3"-4" suspension and NO body lift, running 33s. I know this pic has 3" suspension and 33s with no body lift because I BUILT IT!!
