Well I've got the performance leveling kit with 33's and my rear tires rub at high flex... Id go higher than the leveling kit if I were you

Yes, that kit comes in 3 configurations. With TF shocks, with adapters and without either if you wanted different shocks.

Sure enough, we had to order a new '14 JKUR and I had the dealer roll the discount into the price.

I ended up with '14 JKUR Billet 6spd, heated seats, Nav 430, hardtop only (buying a Trektop NX and soft doors over the winter) and connectivity package and I got it for $35, 373.00 before tax. (40,022.01 taxes included and out the door!). I'm very pleased with the deal I received, and for me using the APA it was very painless. The only sticky point was when I was at the dealer and they tried to renege on writing the $3250 off the price. They came in with $1500, I refused, then $2K and I was about to leave, then they came back with "OK, I guess we will since we told you we would", and they wrote in the full $3250 discount.

Good luck in your search for a new Jeep..

Might try using TrueCar. They have quoted me a $2,800 discount off MSRP for a 13 Sahara by going to a "Certified Dealer" that honors their pricing. Not sure if I can use the service to order a 14, or if I am limited to dealer stock.

One more question (yeah right!). I've seen mention that 35's are too much for 3.73 gears, which I would get on a JKUS. Any truth to that, or is it a matter of how much off road you do?

By the way, where in Canada are you? I must be a "closet Canadian", as I'm way more into Hockey than Baseball, which is difficult when you live in STL.

GO BLUES!

I narrowed it down to either the OME 2 inch coil lift or the teraflex 2.5 kit like you suggested. Id rather have more room than not enough.

I'm in the 2-door 33" (285/75/16) with a TF 1.5 performance lift. Have not had a chance to wheel it hard yet, but accomplished exactly what I wanted to do. I can tell a bit of sluggoness going from the 32" (255/75/17) BFG's to now and I have 4.10 gears. For me, I cannot imagine running 3.73 and 35's.... but thats just my seat of pants feel.

I think it would depending on what engine you have on whether or not you would like to run 35's on 3.73. I think with the pentastar you would have no issues, but honestly I am not sure. I think I've read on here somewhere of guys running 3.73 and 35's on new Jeeps without any issue.. it may have been on an auto though, can't remember.

I'm in Ontario, Canada. No time for sports lately, but I'm a Detroit Red Wings fan and Minnesota Vikings fan if I ever get a Sunday free to watch a game..

I feel sorry for ya. coming from a Bears and Hawks fan not particularly in that order.

I have a 2 door 2013 pentastar and 3.21 gears and an auto trans. I seem to have lots of power with the stock tires. I have heard some say this set up could run 35's but unsure. It sure feels like it can and someday I might. If anything it will send me gear shopping.

+1 on this I have the TF leveling with spacers, my 33"s rub the front fender when disconnected. I don't see how 35"s would work without rubbing on even minimal offroad use.

Ordered a 2014 JKUR Copperhead Wednesday with Auto and 4.10's, so I'll probably be fine with the 35's.

Sorry to hear your a Wings Fan, though. They're not very popular here, but only because they've been beating the crap out of the Blues for so long!

So here is my dilemma which I am looking for some advice/opinions on:

I bought a 2014 JKU Rubicon X last month. Suspension and wheel-wise so far I have put on a set of Method Racing NV wheels which are 17x8.5 and have a 4.5" offset. On those I put DuraTrac 285/70/17's which at the time I liked. Added a Teraflex leveling kit which is supposed to give 2" in front and 1" in rear.

However I am now wanting to go with 315/70/17 DuraTrac's and am not sure if I will run into problems. Since my wheels are 8.5" and not 9" will that cause the tires to run a little taller? My understanding is that 2014 should already have the pinch seam trimmed so that should not be an issue. I do some wheeling but for now this is mainly my DD and weekend trails but nothing extreme and don't expect to go anywhere near full flex offroad. At some point I do plan on adding a 2.5" lift but for now I just want to bump up to the 315's.

Does anyone see any issues if I step up the 315's in my current configuration?

Post 21 has pictures of my Jeep with 8.5 wheels and my daughters with 7.5 wheels. Both have leveling kits as their lifts.

The setup works fine on the street, but I don't think I would take it off road for any serious action. I'm sure it would hit the fenders.

With cut fenders, no rubbing issues with a 1.5" spacer leveling kit and 35x12.50r17.
