They will most likely fit, but you'll have to highline or make tube front fenders and modify the back if you would like to wheel without rubbing

Welcome, I got 3.25" lift on mine and running 33" tires, I wouldn't run anything larger unless doing a body lift also.

3.25 coils and 1.25 body lift and you'll be good to go.

I'm running 35's on a 4" lift with very little rub.

i got the same jeep. i did a 3" body lift. put 35" tires on. they rubbed on the sway bar real bad. i put the maximum offset rims on. they still rubbed a little. i wonder if there is a longer sway bar link i can put on. that would take care of it totally.

98, I'd do the BL also as it is also a step towards a tummy tuck.
Coop, have you tried adjusting the steering stops?
