    Thanks a lot for the advice..............that gives me some ideas to work with. Will need to have a look at some Jeeps with 35" to see what I want to do.

    Will let you know what is the outcome in the end.

    I have a question.

    I sold my Jeep and are reading like crazy, to see what n want to do.

    Let say I buy the Wrangler 2.8 crd auto, for me I have to change the wheels to 33" or 35" as I don't like the look of the standard wheels on them, and then if I am right I need to lift the vehicle to fit those size wheels 2" or 3" lift.......................what will happen with the fuel consumption when this changes are done.

    Thanks guys.
    Yes like he said the fuel consumption suffers at the hand of both a lift and larger and heavier tyres.

    I don't have a JK but I have a TJ with 32" (stock was 30") and I get between 20 and 22l/100km.

    Yes, and a stubby front bumper don't help the fuel consumption either!

    Not fogetting the winch that feels like it weighs atleast as much as it can pull.
