I got a JLU Sport Altitude last week and put a set of Nitto Ridge 275/70R18 as the Altitude wheels are 18.

I saw a few pictures of JLU sports with a similar set and mine seems to have more clearance on the tires. I was planning to add a Rubi take off suspension but based on the current setup I think I will leave it as it is.

I checked the springs and they are the ones from the sport but I think the shocks are different , larger diameter and similar to Sahara's. Adding some picture of the tire clearance with the stock wheels and suspension.

From what it shows comparing on Jeep.com the Sport Altitude has the Sahara Suspension and Brakes. Can anyone confirm? For me, that's well worth the +$700 over a similarly equipped Sport S comes out to be

Good to know that size tire fits on the Altitude wheel.
I have identical head lights as well. .
If you have smoked tail lights, that would be a weird coincidence.
Also - I see your Canadian flag, I added an American flag, but I removed the Wrangler sticker first.

Sport Altitude looks like an in-between Sport and Sahara: it has Sport bumpers, fenders and no sides steps, and Sahara wheels, brakes and shocks.

I think that if you like the blackout options + the Wheels it makes sense. You are getting the blackout options + Wheels + HD Brakes + better shocks for the difference.

Saharas have different shocks?
