    Brand new to the forum. Just ordered a JLU Sahara and wanted to know how big of a tire I can put on the stock rim without adding a lift or leveling kit?

    I read somewhere that the Sahara can take 33" stock form. I am not sure if anyone tried larger without lift. Next would really be the 35" pretty much and you are going to need a lift with that if not making any other modifications.

    Cant wait for your pics. I'm thinking about 295/70/17 for my Sahara. That's a 33.3 tire so it will be helpful to see what you have and compare yours to others who have the 285/75/17. Or I might have to settle for 285/70/17.

    Rims are not stock, but they are Mopar Jeep rims. The grille came stock with silver inserts. I painted them black myself.

    Do you like those Falken tires? Any idea how they compare to the KO2's? Also, how much has the ride and volume changed with the switch?
