Re: Mopar Lift/Tire Size Recommendations to Fit Hard Rock JKU Wheels with no Spacers
Thank you! That's the best advice and that's actually what I've been doing. I already switched out with a generous trade in of our stock KMs to same size 255/75/17 Duratracs, with forum advice I lowered the psi to within a 37-40 range and already I'm feeling the improved performance and comfort both on and off the beaten path. I've enjoyed seeing those 285 versions of this tire with stock Rubi wheels, and friends checking out our new Jeep keep asking when we're going to fatten up our toy truck lol. The tire vendors like to ignite the fear in spacer installations, but we owners know what fun we're in store for. I'm actually stressing more now between 1.25 and 1.5 Spidertax just to get the right look without too much tread showing beyond the stock fenders. But as you've so eloquently expressed there's no rush. Even with 285's I can stall the lift for now. I know I should be happy with what I have, but as many here I'm sure will attest, this Wrangler updating can sure be addictive and in its own way a fun destressor from the real world. I already made one mistake.
I trusted a great recommendation here for purchasing the well reviewed AEV rear backup system, but without noticing any disclaimer by the factory, the vendor seemed to feel that the stock Rubi Tirerack would fit the camera just right, when in actuality without purchasing the matching AEV tire rack, the camera is set too far into the Rubi wheel well resulting in a reduced visability scalloped display appearing at the bottom of our 430n factory screen. So am now in the process of removing this new camera system and hopefully will find a buyer here in the forum, as it is a great product just not meant for our stock tire rack and rims. Pac-Audio has a newly introduced rear camera display system with wide angle and full screen viewing I'm presently looking into. Will let everyone know how I make out with this new camera.
Happy Turkey Day!!
