I'm still trying to decide on a wheel & tire upgrade, and am now thinking about the following combo:
Nitto Trail Grappler 295/70R17 = 33.5"x12"
Keeping my stock 2013 Rubi wheels
Installing 1.5" Spidertrax spacers
Installing Teraflex Leveling Kit
Assuming I'll be able to sell my almost new BFG stock tires for $400-$500 (pipe dream?), the net cost of this combo is only about $1,300, i.e., a lot less than getting new wheels, slightly bigger tires, and a "real" coil lift kit. Plus, my wife wouldn't even notice that I've spent money on this upgrade, because I'm keeping the stock rims!
So, what's your verdict? Also, would it rub? I'm sure the smaller (and lighter) DuraTrac 285/70R17s (32.8"x11.5") would fit, but they just don't seem like much of an upgrade over the stock BFG 32"x10"s.
Any input would be appreciated!
PS: will the Rubi's remote sway bar disconnect still work with the TF Leveling Kit? I thought this capability was a goner once you go with a coil lift kit and longer sway bar links (edited; thanks for the clarification, Beyond!) Just wondering...
