thoughts on a set up for a buddy

my friend just bought a WK. He has 20" rims and wants run Nitto Dune Grapplers with like a 2.5" lift or something like that. the truck will basically be used for street and light beach.

anyone have any thoughts on the suspension set up?

Friends don't let friends put 20" rims on a lifted Jeep.

But if it's only for "street" use and not off-road, then I think it would be cool. 20's + meaty tires + a lift = a bad ass WK. We're still waiting for someone to do this!!

I guess I'm just old school. 18s are cool. 20s are jumping the shark. 20s on a lifted Jeep is blasphemy.

Re: thoughts on a set up for a buddy

kind of off from the suspension but Nitto offroad tires are over rated and priced. ive seen all there offroad tires in action and they perform poorly. save the money and buy a different tire.

i agree - but that's not a battle i'm ganna win w/ this guy. I'm just trying to do my best from keeping away form low-pro street tires.
the dune grapplers come in:
285/50R20 116T - overall diameter = 31.30
LT285/55R20 E 122R - overall diameter = 32.36
LT305/55R20 E 121R - overall diameter = 33.07

anyone know if any of these will fit w/ a 2.5" lift? Remember he doesn't really need room for articulation.

any thoughts, suggestions, advice and disses welcome and appreciated

thanks

Re: thoughts on a set up for a buddy

To my eye, the bigger the tire and more lift you have, the smaller the wheel looks. So to me, I reckon it'd look tough as with a 20" wheel, 4" lift, and biggest tire you can fit.
FARKIN TOUGH I SAY! lol

Re: thoughts on a set up for a buddy

he's been in mine w/ the 4" and its too much for him.

I'm guess the most he can squeeze on there w/ a 2.5" lift is the
285/50R20 116T - overall diameter = 31.30

what are you guys that have a 2.5" running for tires?
