    Welcome to the forum @hbmiked.
    My GF runs 275s without a lift on her 98 ZJ. 265s shouldn't be an issue with your ZJ.

    Right on! Thank you. I was trying to find info before I got the tires but everyone’s was saying they would be too big. They’re super sweet. Love this forum too.

    Welcome @hbmiked , those first generation ZJ GCs with SFA make a great trail rig and are easier for suspension upgrades. The 265s will look good but inspect for clearance in the front as they are 2.2" taller and 1.57" wider than the stock 225/70-R16. Other considerations are wheel offset and quality wheel spacers (installed correctly) could help if there is contact with suspension parts.
    Post some before and after pics...
