Lift wheels and tire questions :D

Hey everyone. I have an 07 2dr Rubi and am looking for a lift wheels and tires. I want to run 35s but cant make up my mind on a lift or how agressive of tires. There arent very many trails around this part of Virginia so it doesnt have to be the best... it is a daily driver and will probably see more mud holes than anything... anyone know any deals or have any comments please share!

Deals? We know sheets you can get the best deals around!

So, looking at 35's with a small lift? I would look at one of the small lift from Synergy Suspension, Rock Krawle, or TeraFelx. Each one has a low budget lift that would work great for you!

Let me know how we can help or if you have any specific questions. Feel free to pm, email, or just call!

How tall are you wanting to go? If you go with a moderate lift you will want to go with an aggressive looking tire in my opinion. That being said, I just ordered some Nitto Trail Grapplers and I couldn't be happier. The tires have an aggressive look, but not overly aggressive and they ride extremely well on the road. The road noise is is minimal under 70 MPH for the tires too...

I think the JK 2.5 MAX TRAVEL PRO MID ARM SYSTEM from Rock Krawler would be a great option for 35's. I currently have the 3.5 mid arm pro, it is a great lift but for 35's I can see that the smaller lift would have been nicer. It offers great flex and versatility with the ability to upgrade later without wasting a lot of parts. At 2.5 you will not put a lot of stress on the Drive line which will make things easier long term.
RK offers exceptional customer service and often anticipates issues before the customer.

Edited I put in the wrong info for the 2.5 kit I was referencing.

Do you mean you are looking for a lift with traditional upper and lower control arms, springs, and shocks? I didn't understand what you meant when you said control arm brackets.

Many of the cheaper lifts i have found come with control arm brackets that extend them instead of replacing them.

Unless you're looking at AEV would agree with your lack of desire to run control arm bracketry.

Like these guys said, check out the offerings from one of the more advanced, Jeep specific companies like Rock Krawler, Synergy Suspension, or Tera-Flex.

If you just want 35s then keep it simple and low with around 2.5" of lift. You won't have to address as many things and it'll keep your Jeep handling close to stock.

There are many, many members running the 2.5" Stock Mod and 2.5" Max Travel from Rock Krawler with both 35s and 37s.

The stock mod is track bar, coils, and sway bar disconnects where the Max Travel gets you control arms and brake lines too. The Max Travel is worth the extra money in terms of getting it all in there on the first swing. However, do what fits your budget and build the JK as you can afford to.

The fun part of these things is the build up, don't feel like you have to do it all at one time.

Marcus
