Will this Duratrak hopefully work with the new lift and can the stock HRR rims be utilized or do they need to be subbed out as well? How does the lift effect stability and handling?

Not more than a couple pages back it was mentioned that Purple may not see release until spring.

Rarely does a 2" lift negatively affect driving characteristics. As this one is coming from Mopar, they have probably done their best to match or exceed stock handling, while retaining good flex.

There is no definitive answer to a question like, "will it hopefully work with...?" Can 315 Duratraks be run with a 2" lift? Yes, on the street they probably won't even rub all that much, especially if you go to a 4.5" backspaced wheel. You could also replace your fender flares with something like Bushwackers or MCE Flex Flares, and gain similar clearance. If you disconnect your swaybar Offroad, then you might see some additional rubbing of the tires without taller bumpstops.

Someone else mentioned that they preferred studio shots in the Build and Price...but I'm excited that for the first time in JK history, the pictures actually LOOK like the color, because it's finally a real picture, rather than a CG
