Milous and those in the know... is it possible to order the Premium soft top without tinted windows? I see with the Black Bear package they're standard. Not a huge fan of tint on a Jeep.

I just got a golden ticket too. Now I'm kinda glad that they weren't too quick to ship my Jeep that was built last week.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

After seeing pics of the Red Rock edition with 2" lift/35" tire combo, with the 2" Mopar lift as a consideration for our new 2016 Hard Rock JKU do you still need spacers to mount the 315/70/17 Duratracs on stock Rubicon wheels? Trying to avoid spacers but keep the same rims with 35" tires, thoughts? Perhaps 285/70/17 would work better on stock rims with no spacers on the 2" lift? Is the Stage 3 3" Mopar lift a better combination with stock Rubicon wheels? Best tire/lift size recommendations appreciated. Thanks for reading!

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I ran my 35's on my stock 08 2 door Rubicon for a week or so. Looked nice but rubbed a little when i hit a big bump

Not something you'd do for long term, but I wanted to see how it looked, rode, and if it was possible!

Did like the "stuffed" look though

Here's a guy with 37's and no lift!

2016 Wrangler Information Thread

That's a lotta tire with no lift! Ideally I'd like to get a 285/70/17 Duratrac with no spacers on the Hard Rock Unlimited but not sure what it will rub against on the trails and if there's a way to avoid this without spacers. The 255/70/17 Duratracs appear a little thin plus are not C rated like the stock BF Goodrich mud terrain KM. The 285/70/17 Duratracs I believe are C rated with stronger sidewall.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

So with leveling kit, no spacers required on the 285 Duratracs? Which kit with link if available? How does this affect warranty? Sounds like a Mopar 2" lift could be the better option to keep the stock wheels with the 285's?

My tire guy said we'd barely notice a difference between the 255 vs. 285 Duratrac, but they definitely appear wider and meatier in pics here on the forum. Ideally I'd love the better specs of the 285 Duratracs with OEM Rubi rims, but not sure how to get this look and no spacers without voiding warranty. That's what made me think the 2" Mopar lift would do the trick.
