Anyone running 37s on a 2” spacer kit? I have the AEV 2” lift and I’m thinking about going to 37s. Was hoping the 315/70s would be good enough but the more I see it, the smaller they look. Also, what’s the height of your Jeep on 37s? Trying to get by with just the spacer kit before I have to put money on a full 3.5in lift. Thanks.

There are quite a few people running a rubicon with 2" lift on 37s/stock wheels with wheel spacers. Stock wheels are 17x.7.5 and backspacing is approx 6.1 and many refer to running a 12.50 width tire on a 7.5 wheel as a poor man's beadlock. Pushing the the wheels out 2" with wheel spacers will clear 37s fine with a rubicon. The tricky part can be getting someone to mount the 37s on a 7.5" wheel because 37x12.50 tire specs call for atleast a 8-8.5" wide wheel...tires will balloon a bit and probably wear unevenly if you run it long term. Most shops wont mount it due to it being out of spec and they dont want any part of potential liability associated. Hope that is helpful. :beer:

I went ahead and put them on. Not on factory wheels. Got BR Warlords. No scrubbing.

Did you install lift yourself?
Yes I did. Took a few hours but not too bad. Jack stand and ratchets for this one. When I swapped lifts I had an impact and that speeds up the process significantly.
