My buddy wheels his Sport pretty good on RC lift on 35s.

i just installed the Duratrac on mine. Its fantastic. I highly recommend it.
Ah so both seem viable options...Any pics of the duratrac? Any chance of yours next to your buddies? Lol also if you don't mind would it be possible to get a picture of the step into the drivers area with a tape measure there so I can show my wife and she can see infront of her how high it would be. After all she needs to give the ok because technically it is "her" jeep lol
Thanks!

So that's the duratrac 2inch Euro sport and .5 inch spacer 🤔 seems kind of high lol I'm afraid of making it to high and her hate having to climb in lol but that might just be a casualty of war hahaha beautiful rig btw thanks

I have the RC 2.5” spacer lift on 35”s. I wheel it regularly and have no issues. I don’t do anything above a blue rated trail. Only thing I did differently was put the correct length shocks on instead of using the brackets. If I was doing any hardcore trails I’d recommend the spring lift.

FYI I am running a -18 and no issues rubbing on anything. With a -12 you should be fine and tires will poke about 1/4 inch less than mine.

So I have the JLUS diesel. When the dealership put 35’s on with no lift there was rubbing on the suspension under hard lock. Fixed it with the mopar lift.

Awesome pictures for reference. Which shocks are you running? How would you compare before lift and after as far as drivability. I feel like financially smart choice for us really is the spacer lift as we won't be doing any serious trails...I just like the idea of the spring lift and knowing "I could" do more, even though we won't and there isn't really a logical reason hahah. I do love the way your jeep sits. Love the color too wouldn't been my pick buy wife wanted gray or black hahaha.

How do you like the mopar lift? It was pretty much what I was going with as soon as I got the jeep but then when I read so much about the Dynatrac Euro lift I started leaning towards that lol.

I’m running Quadratec shocks. Not bad but I’ll switch when they are done. I ran the stock shocks for a month before I swapped to correct length shocks and you couldn’t tell the difference from stock with the spacers. Once I went to the Quadratec shock the ride stiffened up but that is my doing as I ordered a stiffer shock due to my wheeling as much as I do. I’ll probably go Rancho shocks next time to be honest. I did go with the RC dual stabilizer also even though I didn’t have any issues with the stock stabilizer but I wanted to make sure when I went to 35”s there would be no issue. Overall for what I do i am happy with the setup and have no plans to swap out springs. I do also have a steel bumper and winch on the front and it is still level. I don’t tow anything so I don’t want the front rake.

Honestly I love it, it’s been very capable for what I do. Fire trails and planned over-landing. Plus one of the few diesel approved kits at the time. Might swap it out years from now. Plus doesn’t void my warranty :)

So no rubbing with stock no lift? What tire size do you have on?

im looking to run 33’s on 18x9.5 with -18 offset on a stock suspension... worried I might get rubbing & poke might look too much... any thoughts ?

I’m running the RC 2.5” budget boost on 35x12.5x17 toyos.You won’t be able to run 35’s without some kind of lift if you plan on wheeling at all. If it’s just street use you could get away with it. 33’s you should have no issues running with that offset. It pushes the wheels far enough out that you won’t rub anything lock to lock. If you have the stock bumper you’ll need to remove the euro inserts attached to the ends of the bumper.

How do you like the toyos? I have Goodyear wrangler duratracs on my silverado and there kind of loud, produce like a droning whine especially on the highway. Trying to see what I can get for the wife's jeeps in thr 35 range that will be close to stock on thr highway, being that we use it the most to travel.

Here is my rig on 295/70 r18 (34x11.5) 0 offset 18x9, but parked next to a 35” tire I can’t tell
It isn’t a 35. My rig has Mopar 2” LCA and front sway bars, Eibach 2” coils, Fox 2.0 shocks, Fox TS stabilizer, jks rear sway links and front track bar. There a few other parts but above is the basic lift info. I also included a picture of the rig before the lift with just the wheels.

If you go duratrac lift I’d get a new track bar and new LCA.
