Anyone have this setup? I have a 2014 jkur with 17-59 springs. It's a soft top as well. I think the height looks pretty good with the stock tires. I'd like to go to 34s (285-75-17) and am thinking a TF or aev leveling kit would be perfect.

And if I'm going from a 32 to a 34 inch tire, and am adding 2" Spacer lift, I should have the same amount of space under the fender, no?

Anyone have pics of this setup?

Probably a little more. That size is a hair under 34". You are adding 2" in circumference, not height. The height difference is only 1".

you will need spacers if you are going to use stock rims.

I can tell you that with 34" tires you will rub stock flares when disconnected. I do with 33" with 2" lift and 1.5" wheel spacers on stock rims. I had them mount a 285/75-17 toyo open country at the same time as the 285/70-17 because I wanted the 34" but it was too much tire for a 2" lift. this is rubbing and it is not all the way flexed as my rear brake hoses were too tight so I stopped. I added brake line relocaters and will get back on the ramp to check in a week or so.

Well crap! I was hoping I could get away with the leveling kit for a while with the 34s... Doesn't look to be the case. I was planning an AEV 2.5 coil kit eventually... May just go directly to it... Just more than I wanted to do but i really want 34s!

Or maybe stick with 33s next tire size with leveling kit and maybe 34s next time with aev 2.5 or 3.5 kit... Arrrrgggghhh... So many choices! It's a blessing and a curse at the same time!

I can tell you it sure is nice having all that excessive power that you get with 33's and I am pretty happy with how it looks and performs. Not sure what gears you have but 33's and 4.10 on my 14 jkur seem to have incredible drivability. sure bigger tires would look cool but for the kind of off roading I do 33's work pretty well and have been to Moab and done moderate runs etc. with no problems from the 33's.

So you are saying you do rub the fenders with the 33s? Badly? Is it going to do damage? What 33s do you have? I was looking at the 285 70-17 Duratracs if I do 33s

Toyo open country 285/70-17. I doubt it rubs enough to do damage but not sure.

Read what he said. How often are you going to disconnect your front sway bar?

I did read what he said... I guess the first question was less question and more repeating what he said in a bit of surprise... But that's why I asked how bad it rubbed. I doubt I will disconnect much if ever... But I don't want to be limited by it either.

And don't extended bumpstops keep the tires from getting too stuffed? Wouldn't that be an option?

Thanks all for the input! I only know what I've learned on this forum as I don't have actual experience doing this work... Yet!

I have the AEV bump stops both front and rear and anybody who has seen AEV bump stops knows they are pretty thick. As far as disconnecting the sway bars I think fairly often depending on the kind of off roading you do especially being it is the push of a button away.

Didn't know they are putting 17-59 springs on the '14 JKUR, our '13 has 18-60s. We have 1 1/2" spacers with TF leveling kit, stock 32s. Planning on 35s.

I have a soft top... Maybe a hardtop gets the 18/60.

there has never been any rhyme or reason on what springs wranglers show up. You can have to identical build sheets and one can have 17/56 and the other can have 19/60 and every thing in between on JKforum.com there is a thread that has been running for years and several hundred pages long about stock springs they are all over the map.
