I think it looks pretty cool.... I say make it the way you want to that’s what makes us all different.

Do your truck the way you want to...I dont ashere to “your” rules...I make my own...
Absolutely! Although I'm into off-roading myself, I get very tired of all the folks who insist that you must be a hard-core off-roader in order to buy and customize a Rubicon!

Yikes, at least get enough sidewall to clear the curbs
Excuse me...Obviously you’re just typing and commenting to project your own internal issues...Those are 37’s my friend..They have plenty of side wall...

I would hate everyone to have the same Jeep as me. I love lots of Jeeps i would never own myself.

I just think what you did to your Jeep is awful. I'm entitled.
Absolutley...You are...And I’m cool with that...

I will it looks good but I don’t like the ride with the rough country so it’s coming out...I just gotta figure out what’s going in it and I’m gonna go a little taller...I’m still getting a little rub on the rock sliders at full lock...It’s not bad but I don’t want any rub plus the rock sliders are coming off and a motorized AMP research (I hope) power step is going in...

Congratulations. That is just awful.

But it ain't my Jeep so enjoy it!
LOL!

To each his own!!! Not my style but then again, not my ride. Whatever floats your boat! I'm waiting to see if anyone lowers one, I don't even know if that's possible. If I see that I may go over and pee on it but only if no one is looking.

I still have them...I’m going to put 37 in tires on the stock wheels for winter though...
I keep waiting for someone in my Detroit area to say they have new Rubi KO2s and Rubi wheels for sale at a fair price for my Sahara i have ordered.

I have seen plenty of lowered Jeeps out racing on a frozen lake here in the mountains. Not anything new, but CJs and YJs. They look ridiculous but I guess they are functional if you are into ice racing, which I am not.

Tire size is not an indication of sidewall size when your wheels are large enough to get curb rash

Yeah, you know I appreciate to love...And some people love to hate...It doesn’t bother me a bit...The funny thing is I went to an off-road Jeep event where we were allowed to text these vehicles (a very amateur setting) but we were all blown away with the abilities of these trucks...I will be taking it off road but nothing that will really challenge/damage the truck...I have since add the rough country 2.5 in lift and I’m trying to figure out how to mount this big ass spare the Go Rhino spacer is for a traditional rim not a rim with 3in of negative backspacing...I love the look of the lift but not the ride...It’s looking like I’ll be buying something much more expensive......This is why I should’ve never started with this jeep...
A spacer lift shouldn't affect your ride quality. Did you drive it stock much before install to compare? It may not have been done properly. With those tires though, you're probably going to need more lift anyway. I'm not sure how much you should expect as far as ride quality goes with a ridiculous vehicle like this. Wrangler's are rough as hell from the get-go.

Have to agree with @JusADudefromDetroit on this one: that's plenty of sidewall to get over curbs at the mall. Once he gets the lift on there, I'll bet he can tackle the toughest malls Detroit has to offer!
