Cool

Hey Russ. Not trying to steal your thread just saying hi.

So what 35's are you installing?


BTW those Duratracs I have are great in the snow.

I have the RC spacer lift and have 33" tires but wouldnt have any problem with 35". I also have 4d rubicon shocks and springs on though but with my stock springs and the spacer 35s would have worked.

I don't know if these other guys wheel their rigs, but if you do...

you need 2.5" longer bumpstops front and rear to run 35s with stock flares and no body lift.


The amount of extended bumpstopping would be less if you ran a body lift and/or flat flares.

Never had a problem, but it rubs at stuff? Thats a problem for someone not looking to have potential body damage. The plastic clips will fail sooner than later.

I cut my flares, no problems with 35s, 2.5" spacers and 1.5" wheel spacers. Stock bump stops

You CAN have 35's with it. I'm still running the spacer kit. I broke most of the front fender clips and a bunch of the back over time from stuffing the tires. I got River Raider fenders and no problems now. Don't get a body lift, they look like $h|t on jeeps. Body lifts are for jacked up fords.

I rubbeb quite a bit with my RC 2.5" spacer lift and 35s. A 1" body lift fixed that.

Any of you have pics of your RC 2.5" spacer kit with 33's or with 35's? I just put that lift on my 07 4dr a few weeks ago but I still have these 18" chrome wheels on here that were on the jeep when I bought it used (I think they are commander wheels actually) and Im trying to decide what wheel and tire setup I want to go with, so pics would really help. Thanks!
