To lift or not to lift, that is the question!

    Hi all
    I'm a complete noob when it comes to this. I have a 99 limited, I know they have the longer coils but I am torn between getting a small lift and not. I run 265/70/16 AT's and they are new so don't wanna change tire size anytime soon. Suspension is kinda shot and needs re-doing so.... what is a good package for beginner/intermediate off-roading and is it with getting a lift with those tires and if so what size lift?
    I know... gibberish!... But worth a shot

    Do you add a lift?
    If not have you considered spring spacers??

    A few things here and there. Still dreaming up stuff
    Get the lift and be done with it. Don't worry about the tires now, replace them next after lift.

    I am debating the same question. I know I want to run at the very least 32's with an aggressive tread (no more stock tires). But I don't have thousands of dollars to throw at it and the rig has around 300k miles...

    3in rough country lift Mastercraft A/T 265/75R16
    Run a 3in lift can clear LT265/75R16 but with a 1.25in or 2in spacer you can clear LT285/75R16 next set of tires I get that's what I'm doing
