If you don’t see an answer to your question, feel free to reach out to one of our Jeep customization experts for a solution.

How much lift does it take to fit the tires I want?

The general rule of thumb for most Jeep Wranglers with stock flares from 2007 through today is as follows:

  • 0-1” lift will accommodate 33” tires
  • 1.5” – 2.5” will accommodate 34” tires
  • 3.5” lift will accommodate 35” tires
  • 4.5” lift will accommodate 37” tires
  • 5.5” lift will accommodate 38” tires

Does Palmer Custom Jeeps Recommend 20” wheels with packages?

With 20” wheels, you will have a wider array of choices for wheels with the optimal width of 10”. At the same time, a 10” wide wheel helps your Jeep look more aggressive and provides a more muscular stance. It also provides a track width increase over stock, which leads to more stability.

Why do all of your packages with 35” or larger tires come with a swing away bumper or tire carrier?

We have found through exhaustive research that factory tailgates are able to hold up to a 33” tire in normal conditions without any problems. If your tires are 35” or larger, we suggest you upgrade to a tire carrier at the 33” – 34” range so it can support the weight of the tire without damaging your Jeep. 

What legal lighting upgrades can I install for better visibility at night?

It’s important to understand some off-road lighting is illegal to use on public roads. Palmer Custom Jeeps by Southern Off-Road Specialists offer several lighting options that are approved by the Georgia Department of Transportation.

We also install:

  • JW speaker upgraded
  • LED headlights
  • Fog lights
  • Rigid Industries LED headlights
  • DOT Duallys

All our installations are a combination of options designed to give you a five-fold increase in light usability on public roadshows
