Anybody have pics of 315/70/r17 on a stock Sahara?
Im wondering if there is rubbing while turning or full flex. Im considering a Rubicon takeoff suspension with .5 teraflex spacers, but I'm wondering if its really necessary.
Also wondering if I need to change the tire carrier due to weight/size? if so, any recommendations?

I would definitely consider a different hinge/tire relocation system like Rugged Ridge, Cavfab or Rusty's for your tailgate. I would also think that those tires on a stock suspension would rub pretty bad during any type of off roading. You could get by with a Rubi suspension on those tires, but still rub while off roading.

I have a 2.5" Rock Krawler lift with those tires (Milestar Patagonia) on my sport. Net probably 4-5" of lift when all said and done.

Don't do it. The largest tire I had on my stock Sahara was 295/70/17 and those were on a 17x9 wheel with a +18 offset for clearance. Currently I have a 3.5 lift with the same wheels and 315/70/17 KO2's.

Did you have issues with your 295/70/17 +18 on your Sahara @Bingy ? I have 295/70/17 +1 offset on order and set to arrive this week
