Re: Jeep grand cherokee rubicon

Certainly sounds better than "Land O Sinkholes". I'm from down south in O'town.

Nope no wheel spacers, stock 17" 2013 Rubicon wheels and tires. And no the shocks dont max out. My wife has 8 sets of speed bumps in her work parking lot she hits every day and it rides like stock. We are very happy with the set up. We get comments everywhere we go. I was walking back to the car yesterday in the mall parking lot when i saw a guy stop, get out of his car and walk up to my jeep to look at the tires and wheels. My wife says evertime she gets gas someone says something. It really compliments the truck well.

You can find these Rubicon take-offs on craigs list for very cheap, I saw a set go for $500 for all five. And it fits in the spair tire holder if you take the plastic bins out.

Re: Jeep grand cherokee rubicon

I like the look !!!
So what is the actual size of the "rubi" take offs?
Did it effect your gas milage much?

Re: Jeep grand cherokee rubicon

Did you have to run any spacers on the wheels or do they bolt right up with that offset?

$500!? The only set here is $1300. You are lucky.
