Before the lift it looked like there was a good amount of room available, would be even more room with the bumper trim removed...It might work. We left them on for now since we are taking a road trip they might help a little with MPG.

Looks good! I wonder if they would fit with no lift. You’d obviously have no room for flexing but would it clear turning wise?

Just wondering since you still have the same offset wheels but now more fender clearance basically. Probably would have to take off the plastic trim pieces between fender and bumper

Thoughts?


And thank you btw.

Yeah might help. I may give it a try while I wait for a lift.

Oh who am I kidding, of course I’m going to do it! Lol can’t wait for the lift

It worked!!!!! JLU Sport S Rough Country 2.5 lift and 35s (315/70/17 KO2s) with NO SPACERS and STOCK WHEELS!!!! :rock::clap: no rubbing at all! I haven't had a chance to test flex but no rubbing with normal driving. I'm so excited! I will take better pictures soon I was too excited to focus. Also the rough country tire relocation bracket used.

I'm a bit vertically challenged so its definitely a change getting in and out.

I'm glad I'm not alone. Question, did you extend/replace the spare tire bump stop? Ours isn't as tight as I would like and bigger bumps is moves a little. I was thinking about getting the JK ones since I heard they are longer.

Just the RC relocation bracket. Everything seems to hold great.

Did you do full turn and flex testing yet? And if so how did it do?

How has this set up been working out? I want to do the same and was wondering if you ran in to any issues since.

It runs great! We did bill moore lake and and around it, no rubbing or problems. She did just as well if not better than the older 4runner with lockers.

How's the driveability and gas mileage?

Drives like it did without the lift honestly.

Gas mileage is hard to judge, I drive about 2miles to work each day, so I average about 15-16mpg. When I go farther I get about 17-18mpg. I get about 22mpg on the highway.

Wow, looks great! I'm thinking about the same setup now. I have those same wheels and love the way they look with my Sting Gray JLUS+, I intentionally ordered them on my build for the look. Thanks for posting your photos and the lift/tire experience.

I love the look of your ride. I have the same Jeep basically except in Granite Metallic. Two questions for you:

1.) Did you have any trouble getting someone to mount those 315's on the stock wheels
2.) Any chance you can post a pic or two looking down the side of the Jeep to not only get an idea of how the tires line up with the edges of the fenders, but also to get an idea of how much the tire is squeezed/pinched with the "narrow" factory wheels?
