Great looking setup. As another Moab owner, have a question about the wheels. My factory wheels are 17x7.5s. BFG lists the wheel range for the 315/70R17s as 8-11 inches. Any concerns about the smaller wheel? Also, do you have the C or E rated tire, as I was wondering about your impressions on the ride with the Moab setup.

Just put 35” ridge grapplers on my Sahara. No lift. Nothing rubbing but I do feel a difference with the transmission. Doesn’t shift as smoothly. Also feeling/hearing a slight “rubbing” sound when driving at idle but it’s not a run because there’s no contact. Anyone experience anything like this?

Not a JL but this JT fit the Falken MTs 35x12.5x17 on stock wheels, no lift, no leveling kit, no wheel spacers. No rubbing and only hit the fender flare when climbing over large rocks at steeper angles.

This is the Sport S with Max Tow, meaning it has the wider axles with 4:10 gearing

I added some Rubicon fender flare takeoffs to help with that.
