2" Tuff Country spacers with 305/65 or 32.5x12 mpg 26. Rides as good as stock. MT Baja MTZ... With out the higher fenders of the Rubi I think it looks just right.

Parked next to my 03 TJ Rubi that has 2.5 OME and 285's

Which engine and do you have a 4dr? I’d like to do a JLUR with the mopar lift and 35s but don’t want to destroy my mileage. Yes. I’m trying to have the most free hugging hippie wrangler I can (diesel soon or plug in). Thanks.

Ps. How high is it? Wondering if it will fit in my parking garage at work. Thanks again.
4dr 3.6L. Now on 37" SST i get almost 17 lol.

Ill throw this out there. If you just want to improve the look by filling them wheel wells up some more how about no lift and 33’s? I’ve had bad experiences and expenses messing with vehicle suspensions and for my JL and how I use it, I don’t think I’m gonna lift it.

I’ve been thinking about not lifting either. I really don’t wanna kill the gas mileage. I want a Jeep but with the least planetary damage as possible. I’m also nervous I won’t fit in my 6’6” parking garage. I kinda like the idea if I’m gonna do it do it off the bat since I think I’ll do a lifetime warranty.

That said if I do aluminum front and rear bumpers then the only heavy piece I’m putting on is the rock slide engineering step slides.

They took stock rubicons on the rubicon trail and they held their own.

JK47, Curious if you happen to have any additional photos (perhaps daylight) with the 285/70 and org bumper from various other perspectives? I have a near identical setup and planning on the Mopar 2". I had that identical suspension on my JK with 33" and it was perfect, however the 2" mopar seems to ride heigher on the JL. I would eventually swap out for something larger, but given my -6 offset I am hoping that stance would balance for a bit.

thanks, marc

Sorry, no more pics with stock bumper. The front end has settled slightly more from when these pic's were taken.

To each their own, but I'm totally fine with my decision for how I use my JL. 90% daily driver, 10% weekend warrior.
2" Mopar lift, 33" BFG KO2s and 1.75" spacers.
I had already spent the money and had the stuff installed thinking a 2" lift and 1" bigger tire would get me 3". Nope. Got 5" all around, exactly. I'd possibly go with 34" when these wear out, but at least I know 35"s will fit easily...
No matter what, haters gonna hate! Peace

Thanks for sharing this. Love to see some additional photos from different angles that provide greater view of this. I think that the high line fenders on the Rubicon make the gap far greater and feel less of a long term solution. However, on the Sport / Sahara - the combination of wheel offset seems like it can work as a transition.

I bought my wheels knowing that I would go up. I widened the stance to compensate for that change in center. However, the JL mopar rides taller then the JK 2”mopar. My intent is to go taller eventually on tire... but am hopeful to get more life from my 33’s. Your build and JK47 provide a more clear view then the same application on a Rubicon.

Can you share more photos?

Here's a pretty recent one and a link to a Google Photos album I compiled:

Awesome! Thank you~ curious, are these photo with the wheel spacers? Hard to see the offset. Sharp lookin rig - appreciate the photos!
Yes, wheel spacers in all those shots. I ordered them the day I picked it up after the install. CJPonyparts.com, can't remember price, but they were hub centric 1.75", not too expensive...
Thanks for the positive comment!
