Yup getting warmer. I'm trying to get an idea of what the stock rubi setup will look like on a 2.5" I ordered the RK 2.5 stock mod for my '12 rubi and wondering if itll look silly without 33s. What lift are you running otto?

my own mish mash of parts. basicly 1.5" teraflex coils and spacers. though running jks control arms, poly performance track bars, ball joints and reinforcement brackets on pretty much everything.

spacers where needed to level everything due to keeping things light and no winch up front. so i ended up with about 2.5" lift

here's a pic how it looks like



drivabilty, reasonable weight, kinda stealth looks was an important point and i wanted to keep the 4.10 gears.

Straight forward enough combination. Im conccerned about driveability also. not looking to go huge, just a little more than pucks and enough to handle the new bumper and winch up front. Want a better ride than a BB. Thanks for the help

Bingo! There it is, thanks snkskn. Looks real good too. Doesn't looks terrible with stock 32s but I think id be happier with 33s.

No problem. In my opinion 2.5" is perfect for 35's, but looks killer if set up right to run 37's.

Go 35s. You will thank us later. I made the mistake of getting 33s and once I added the lift they got smaller and smaller everyday. I sold em and went 35s. Just do it and worry about gears, axle reinforcement later.

I don't want to start a landslide. Thats the reason I went with the rubicon this time. Basic minor lift, small upgrade in tire size, winch and I'm really all set for my very capable daily driver. 35s will lead to things I don't want/need. More money, more necessary mods, drop mpg, sacrifice ride etc. All insignificant individually but put together its not worth it to me and not the direction I want to head in. When I can afford a toy I'll definitely be heading down that trail.

looks good! Pretty much what mine will look like (minus the arms/shocks and hood). The forest green will seem black most of the time. nice

some people do not need or want 35's... i've put on over 40,000km on my
33's... trips into the low mountains of quebec, up into the artic watershed of ontario, daily driving/commuting in a mega city... this tire size has worked very very well for me and the type of wheeling i do.

my philosphy is take the money you will save and make your jeep more reliable.

Talking

Can someone explain the purpose of going long arm with only 2.5 inches of lift? I mean , would it even remotely be worth the hassle of cutting and rewelding?

If you are going to do a cost benefit analysis, it is probably not worth it but I wanted to start on a solid foundation.

The way I pictured it was that any lift is removing X % of suspension cycle akin to removing a slice of pizza from a pie. Going to long arm corrected that. At 2.5" that slice removed probably wasnt very big but none the less, I know I now have a solid foundation so if I can ever afford to go to coilovers, I can get it dialed in and really see some flex.

Just how I pictured it at least
