must be nice to have a rubi. Was it worth the extra bank?
Absolutely for me...I wheel all over and we take family trips and having the warranty covering everything is amazing. If I saved 9K getting a sport I would have spent more than that getting a Dynatrac Dana 44 front axle and regearing to 4.10 or 4.56 and having to buy and install lockers and rock rails etc. also I wanted to have the Apple Carplay...so I got a base model rubicon with the 7 inch touchscreen and premium soft top...its really nice and everything I could ever want...and I can run the 37s off road and not worry about breaking and all my lockers and axles etc. are all covered under warranty for many years I am glad

that’s great. I guess I didn’t think of it like that. Then again in ny we don’t have many trails. But a 4 door rubi is my go to in a few years hopefully it’s still a jl cause I love my Jeep as is. Congrats on your rubi looks great love the wheels. And yeah got real lucky with that one.

Hey everyone I’m about to pull the trigger on some tires and just needed some info. I got some JK Sahara wheels and about to order 265/70r18 wildpeaks and 1.75 inch spacers. Do I need aftermarket lugnuts? Or will the stock ones work fine? Also this setup should work fine?

I have these same takeoffs. Did you have to make any adjustments?
I just picked up some of the same take offs. Did you have any issues putting the lugs on? when putting my spare on the back it seemed that the lugs werent seating properly.

I have a 2020 jl sport. I didn't have a single issue with these tires. I have been running them for a few weeks and have done some light offloading and they've done great! I torgue my tires to 130 and the spare to 65 ft/lbs. I had to do adjustments on the tailgate, I had to trim the bumpstops about in half and also had to trim about 4 inches off of the backup camera cover. I have them aired at about 35 psi, seems to be the sweet spot. I haven't done the chalk test yet to check for sure but doing it Sunday.

Very nice, looking at buying a set of these wheels off fb marketplace, only $450 for a set of 5 wheels (no tires) - what tires are you running on those? Im hoping its 285/70/17 because that is what im thinking of combining.
