Couple pics of the new JL, 2” Mopar lift with 37x13.50x20 general x3’s on fuel rippers. Another picture with it next to old 03

The TJ and JL look awesome! Funny how I was complaining I have not seen any Mud Grapplers in this thread and then the first ones to show up are on a TJ lol. Still hoping to see some on a JL :fingerscrossed:

Looks awesome with those wheels!
Thanks Man - I appreciate it.
I'm a fan of the "stock" look - If someone made my JL Rubi wheel in 8.5" and correct backspacing I would run that. But the old Hardrock wheel is a great compromise and it comes in a few different colors.

Those 8.5 Hardrock wheels as well as the rest of the Jeep look great.

So, a question for you: How does it ride with the EVO 2.5 lift? Did you get it with the shock extensions? I had pulled the trigger on a Skyjacker 3.5-4" Lift kit late last week, but actually cancelled my order this morning... just worried that it would be too extreme for my use case. Interested to hear what you think of this kit and how it rides with the 37" tires.

Here is a good comparison on my JLUR with 35’s and 37’s both with 2” Mopar Lift and Nitto Ridge Grapplers

This is a great perspective, thanks for posting! Really shows how much of a difference the 37's make.

Cheers :beer:

Do you know your backspacing/offset of your wheels?
It’s listed on the AEV site.

However buyer be warned, the mugs in the JL are bigger than on the JK. SO you must use a thin-walled socket or you will mar your wheels.

Didn’t see a requested but can you possibly post the link to your RC lift? Great set up!

Oops...found the lift on the Vendor Page. Looks great man.

So i would really like to do the mopar 2” and 37’s, but don’t wanna kill power. So i was looking at the skyjacker 1-1.5” lift and 35’s. Is the weight of the tire or Rev per mile mean more when looking at tires, or both play a big role. Bc some 37’s are lighter then some 35’s like the Nitto and toyo’s.
