Looks fantastic!

Let me ask you... did you consider 37” tires instead of 35’s? What made you decide on 35’s? I am back and forth with this option.
Thank you.
I didn’t want to change any steering/suspension geometry, so I went with 35s. Essentially, plug and play.

The thing to remember is any amount of lift is going to reduce your caster without correction. Adding bigger tires and reducing caster is a recipe for degrading your on-road handling. I wouldn't add bigger tires without adjustable front LCAs, but that's just me.

Teraflex has several size spacers not listed for the JL that fit. I called them and had them group a set of 1” F/.5” R spacers for my Sport S with Moab suspension in order to run my 34’s. Teraflex charged me around $60. I also am updating bumpstops.

I did the Teraflex 1” spacer on the front and 1/2” spacer on the rear to give the 315’s a bit more room. Drives great and so far no rubbing.

So I measured my jeep's rake and it's roughly equal.
Garage floor to low point on rock rail:
Left Front: 17.25
Right Front: 17.25
Right Rear: 17.25
Left Rear: 17.5

So left rear appear to be a tad higher, maybe to account for the fuel tank?

Anyway, is it possible they adjusted on the 2020?
Or maybe it will settle after more time? It only has about 1000 miles on it
I have a 2019 Rubicon 2-door also, same measurements stock. I also dont like the offset lifts. But the market is geared heavily toward the 4-door, since those are much more common.

I have measured springs from a 4-door Rubicon with identical options as mine. The rear springs were a stiffer rate, while the front springs were softer. This explains the 4-door nose sag.

I also would like a true level 1.5" spacer kit, as I really dont like the nose-high look. Thinking of just making my own.

It looks great have you been off-road yet does it rub? I’m doing a similar set up 1.5 in front and 3/4 in rear on my Jlur with 315’s on stock rims did you add a adjustable track bar or any caster correction?

The TF spacers are stackable. I have two .5” spacers installed at each spring netting exactly 1” all around. I have wheeled it a ton in this configuration and it has done great.

That said, I have a metalcloak 3.5” gamechanger suspension sitting in the garage waiting for me to install it.

i suppose I could sell the spacers if any one wants them. Likely available in two weeks after thanksgiving weekend.

I’ve had it off road, moderate trails, no rubbing. I don’t do any crawling. I didn’t do adjustable track bars or any castor correction. Did have it aligned by a trusted shop. Luckily, 3,000 miles and no issues, no wobble, etc.

Another benefit of 35s is that the spare tire carrier doesn't require any modification (on a Rubicon).

Next spring when I get the 35's, I'll check my measurements again. Maybe it'll have settled a bit since new.

Then I'll see what I need. Good to know TF sells spacers in all sizes.
