Will this combo work? Please help?

OK - So I've had my WK for a few months and am now ready to start lifting. I'm not going to be doing any serious off-roading, mostly beach driving. So I'm looking for more ground clearance, wider tire.

My Plan

2" Rough Country
Bilstien HD All around
1.5" Spidertrax spacers (I like the wide look, wheels outside the fenders)
Tires, need to know what size is ok. I want Duratracks. I was thinking like a 31x10.5?

Would this fit without rubbing or modification? What is the widest tire I can get on there?

All help is appreciated. My truck was a little low on the beach and got stuck, I put it in reverse and forcefully removed my front bumper. The sooner I can get this all squared away the sooner I can get back on the beach! FYI the bumper somehow suffered no damage. I had to replace a few clips and it went right back on. I think the body shop only installed clips (thank god) and not bolts anywhere, the bolts would have destroyed it but since it was just clips it kinda popped right off.

Thanks in advance

If you do the pinch weld and rear fender roll mod you won't have any problems with that set up. I'm running 265/70 fierce attitudes on STOCK suspension with no rubbing. All I did was pinch weld, fender roll and 1.5" wheel spacers.

I haven't heard or read anything about the rear fender roll. Can you explain that a little for me?

Thanks!

Go look at the wheel well, and you will see a piece of black plastic that hold the weather stripping on the rear door, you pull that off and cut and pound it flat just like the pinch weld up front. And also cut the plastic so it doesn't have that 90 degree bend in it.
