Rubicon takeoff suspension with 33's.
How much higher does your Jeep now sit with this as opposed to stock? I see a lot of people go this route and yours looks nice! What do you notice most about your Jeep now after these kids? Does it seem taller when you get into it? Any ride difference? Reduction of power? Significant loss of MPG?

Do you have any other pictures of this? Do you notice any rubbing? Decrease in power? Significant decrease in MPG?
No rubbing in light duty off-road/rocks/sand, but--

I use 16"x8" PROCOMP CLASSIC WHEELS and you have to have a MAX of 4.75" Back Space !

Is your back end slightly higher than the front end or is that just an illusion by the picture?
Just the slope of my driveway, I am at 39" on both front and rear fenders (nice and level), I was at 37" before.
I actually installed the Teraflex 1.5" spacer kit, which has a 2" spacer on the front, and a 1.5" on the rear (to get rid of the factory rake), but as I was already level, I added an extra 0.5" at the back.

Can't doit with stock wheels !

Good luck

Jim, I did mine with stock wheels, but maybe my Toyo 285/70R17s don’t have as wide of a footprint as your tires. Mine cleared by a couple of inches at full turn, and I took her wheeling before I had the lift installed. No abrasion in any wheel wells, no scuffing on the tires. I think my footprint is only 11.5” though.

I think it was about 2.75 inches after all was said and done, maybe slightly more. It does seem taller when I get in, rides a little rougher as well. Power seems fine, haven't noticed any loss there and same with mpg although I haven't had it on long and I am expecting a slight loss. The biggest difference for me is how much more my tires stick out but that's just my choice of wheels so that's heavily dependent on that setup.
