Does anyone have any pictures of a JLU Sport S with a 2.5 spacer lift on it with 35s on? Does it work and any rubbing or does it look odd?

Also will I be able to do this to mine using the stock wheels I have or will it not look right at all?

Thinking about using the RC 2.5 spacer loft kit

We have this lift and 35s. We had to remove the piece from the bumper to fender because the tires were running.

How much did those wheels and tires run you if you don’t mind me asking? I’m thinking about just getting new wheel that will fit but don’t want to spend too much

I have the 2.5in RC kit with 315/70r17 BFG KO2s on the stock Sport S wheel. No issues at all with daily driving, however when turned full lock at low speeds (like when turning in to a tight parking spot) there is some slight rub. I actually think it's rubbing on the air dam, and not any of the suspension components itself, so I'm not worried.
I'll take some pics to post if it ever stops raining!

Here are a few pics with a 2.5 RC lift. The wheels are Pro-Comp 7069. It has a -6 Offset and 4.75 backspace. Tires are 315/70/17r.

You can see it rub the fenders in one of the pics but if you are not taking it off road much it should be fine. I’m going to add bumpers so have been thinking about switching to a full suspension lift.

I have that kit on my wifes Sport... I also have that kit with the N3 shock option on my Rubicon... either kit will work but I'd recommend getting the shocks also... I'm about to order the same shocks for my wife's Sport because the stock sport shocks aren't up to the task of handling the 35's she has and it'll get rid of the cheesy extensions... if your staying with a smaller lighter tire ( you said stock wheels), you may have better luck with the base kit than I did...

I also have the coopers, and they’re a good tire. Not the best in wet weather, but they have a stiff enough sidewall that they handle well for the aggressive divers out there. I have mine on stock JK wheels (same specs as the jl wheel) and the Cooper will rub at full lock on the lower control arms. I needed spacers correct this, but guys with a lower profile tread such as the KO2 are fine on stock wheels at 35”.

Thanks for the info! I have spacers right now with my stock wheels to fit my RK lift. Good to know they will fit my stock wheels! Ill probably just throw them on my rims till I can afford some wheels! lol
