I have tried every browser at my disposal and it blows my mind because the pics just refuse to load.

I have concluded that I must have received some sort of virus through my email. I have canceled all email accounts and reinstalled Windows 7 Ultimate x64. Pics still not loading.

I'm running out of options here. There must be some glitch in the Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Operating System. Thanks Bill Gates. Switching to MAC OS X maybe this will prove effective.

MAC OS X installation complete. I'm drawing a blank here. Pics still won't load. After ruling out software errors, I am convinced that there must be some lingering mechanical failure in my system. I have placed an order to newegg for rush delivery of a new Western Digital Caviar Black HDD. Will give this another shot tomorrow.

Harddrive has arrived and has been installed. To no avail, the pictures will not load. I have not shaved or showered in a week. My clothes stink. I have lost my job...all because these confounded pictures will not load. I'm done with the whole electronics thing. I will be moving into an Amish community and this will be my last update on this issue. Good luck and good riddance.

:D

Seriously- a '14 w rubicon wheels and sliders sounds awesome- you posted in at least 4 subforums with no pics...

Should be viewable now, pic had to get approved I guess

Your Jeep looks great! I do love the white, but my JKU Rubi was white, so I needed a change this time.

Have you discovered the full Rubi spare fits below the cargo floor?!

SHUT UP... Does the door close as well? I was deciding whether or not to buy them bc of that issue. So, the exact wheel and tire you have in your pic is the one that can fit in the spare tire holder under the trunk and the door closes?

Also, you running stock height? I have a 2013 E group laredo and have heard that the wheels and tires fit without needing a leveling kit or lift. Can you confirm that?

I am running the RRO 2.5" lift, but the tires/wheels fit before the lift with some rub offroad. As this replaced my Rubi, and living in the mountains, this has spent more time offroad than probably 90% of JKs, so the flex & not rub is a must. If you only drive gravel roads or on-road most of the time, you shouldn't have issues.

The rear cargo floor does close fully with the Rubi wheel back there, though you will loose the factory foam tool holder and the plastic side compartment things. I still have my tow straps and jumper cables in the wheel center, and tie-down straps, 3" drop hitch, hatchet, folding saw, and a couple other items placed around the tire without issue. I did have to relocate my jack to the off-road duffel with other tools which lives in the rear cargo area (tire patch kit, minor tool kit, shovel, etc. also live in this bag).

I really like the look and feel of the WK2 with the Rubi wheels and tires, especially since I added the Mopar Rock Sliders. However, the clearances are just not there, and really hard to modify further. I have been looking to get back into another JKU Rubi, but just haven't found the right one, and hard to give up the push-button start, dual-zone climate, 5000lb towing, and ease of highway cruising the WK2 provides. It really is a nice package. Even, after the last weekend offroading with a buddy in his 2015 JKU Rubi, the WK2 did the same trails, and even had problems on similar obstacles, just being able to lock the axles and know you wouldn't get wheel spin can mean the difference between big body damage and none.

Awesome write up! Currently I'm running the 18's from the unlimited wrangler (as seen in my avatar) so I already had to remove the baskets in the spare tire compartment. As is I keep: collapsible shovel, small saw, 8 pack of flares, jumper cables, straps, first aid kit, gloves and some other stuff. I can move some smaller items to the compartment under the drivers seat bc I don't have airbag suspension.

As for driving habits, she is a mall crawler so full flex and big obstacles aren't in the near future. Also, I have heard a few conflicting reviews as far as a little snow on the ground, but everyone states that in 5+ inches they bite real nice. Where do you come in on the reviews? Oh, as far as TPMS, did they come with them or did you buy and install after? Did they mate up? The wheels I'm buying come with them so hopefully that is a non issue. My rig is a 2013 and the ones I'm getting are from a 13 as well.

Here are the ones I'm getting.

Did you need to flash for different tire size??? Considering doing the same to my 2013 Overland Summit.

There is no way to recalibrate the speedo on these WK2s, yet.
