Northern AZ new guy

Hi,

Recently bought a 2010 Wrangler 4DR Sahara - just found this web site. The Jeep is stock of course, but may make a few changes as we go.

Have a few questions, if those with experience can answer.

The jeep came with P255/70R18 tires on stock 18" wheels. How much larger can I go with tires on these wheels?

To get a more aggressive look with larger tires, do I need different wheels?
if so, what are the best options for moderate off road travel - not competition rock crawling.

Also, what is a good way to mount or carry my hi lift jack on the jeep? On a bumper, spare tire mount, or ?

thanks in advance to those who reply.

Welcome.

Rugged Ridge makes a pretty decent hi-lift mount:

I really like my Pro Comp Series 8069's http://images.stylintrucks.com/handl...=150&hash=0206 I'd suggest 17's. And for your hi-lift I've various attachment points. Some people use a braket tied onto their roll cage and others use a bracket that attaches to the rear hinges of the tail gate. River Raider also makes a hood mount that seems to be pretty good.

I understand the Jeep thing

Welcome from Kingman.

18" tires cost a lot more. 17" is becoming the standard size for the most choices.

thanks, to all! I'll see if my jack will go under the seat - if so, best solution!
