Hi Guys,

I did a search and couldn't find what I was looking for. Who is running the 4.5's with the Falcons 3.3s? I do moderate wheeling (John Bull, Big Bear), so I don't need 13" of travel. I'm wondering how the Jl's ride/drive on the street with this set up? Would you run it again?
Thank you

Do you plan on running 40-42 inch tires? If not, I'd say go with a lower lift height.

I'll be running a 40x13.5x17 Maxxis Razor on a 17x9 Battle Born Beadlock (3.5: backspace).

Your front tires will hit the Rubicon rock rails when turning. You will have to remove them or add adjustable control arms.

I've had 4 built Jk's on 38's/40's, I don't leave much stock. I'll be running Roam sliders.

I went with the Smittybilt side armor and that eliminated the problem. I also had 4 built JKs on 38/40s. Black, Red, Hyper Green, and White. Current jeep is a Punk'n JLUR on 40s. It sure is a fun hobby.
