That was my conclusion a couple years back as well, although it was 33s I was after not 35s. When I looked at the cost and work involved on an XJ in doing enough lift for 33s, gearing, SYE, installing a custom roll cage, and reinforcing the uni-frame I found I would be ahead of the game to just trade my XJ for a TJ.Originally posted by mud hound:

Not going to happen any time soon. There are some 3" lifts for the KJ in the works, but none on the market yet. With the 3" lift a 32x10.5" (equivilent from metric) will be the max tire size, but even that will require hammering the inner fender pinch-weld flat.Originally posted by DaveW:
Chris, How about 33's on the KJ?
I have to disagree...if he understood the "Jeep Thing" he wouldn't have a Liberty.The only possible exception is a guy who is trimming his fender sheet metal on his 2002 Liberty.
That's one guy who understands the Jeep Thing
