2.5” JKS Lift with Fox 2.0 Performance Shocks installed. Added 35” Nitto Ridge Grapplers wrapped around Fuel Kicker 5 Anthracite 17”. Amazing to me that it rides and handles better than stock. Anyone with the Ridge Grapplers, what psi are you running? And anyone adding the larger tires run into interference with back-up sensors due to spare?
I have Ridge Grapplers and run 30-31 psi when running around empty. Still have to figure the pressure when I pull my trailer.

Sounds good. My shop put them at 45-46 which I feel is too high. I was thinking about dropping down.
I run my 35" Nitto RG's @ 35 lbs. and I like them a lot. I worked my way down from 42 lbs that the dealer put in them to a point where I found them to be comfortable.

I took the plunge & swapped out the fenders for the @ACE Engineering set. I like the look, but I don't think I like the look of the full bumper now. I don't want to think about it since I'll only end up with another hermetically-sealed package in a box at my door.

Initially I had a serious disdain for nutserts, but they ain't so bad after all. A rivet tool is worth having around, especially when you have to punch in eight. I have the Go Rhino rear liners and they had to be removed & replaced... so, I got a crash course in removing nutserts since they came with four. Not exactly a "riveting" experience.

Looks less like a fire truck now.

Bought it! Picked up a 2018 Rubicon on Saturday. This is my very first Jeep. Not sure why I waited so long though, this thing is so much fun.....My 5 and 10 year old boys are more excited than I am though! Yesterday was such a beautiful day, had to try it with top and front doors off. What an experience driving with the doors off. Any tips or ideas for the first few mods for a new Jeep owner??

Is this measurement when cold?

32 front 30 rear for me. My rear spare does block the backup camera, and thankfully I already had a Tazer mini to turn off the rear proximity sensor.
