AEV 3.5" Lift w/Stock Wheels

Anyone know if the AEV 3.5" SC lift will accommodate the stock tire/wheels(17" rubi wheels) on a 2013 JKUR. I've tried to search this subject with no results. I'll be running the stock wheels with stud less tires in the winter and 35's on after market wheels in the summer. I'm hoping to avoid spacers, if I can.....thanks

Just a guess, but I don't think your stock wheels will work with that lift. Your stockers have 6.25" backspacing. The AEV Pintlers have 4.75" bs and the AEV Savegres have 5.25" bs, which means they sit 1.5" and 1" farther out from the Jeep, respectively. And probably for a reason...which would be to ensure there's no rubbing on the AEV suspension components.

I could be wrong, of course.

Why not call AEV directly, or jump on their in-house forum and ask Dave? Pretty sure they could answer your question more definitively than I can.

The FAQ's for their lifts on their website specifically state that their lifts will work with the stock 17's. You can actually apparently use the 16's if you have them as well as long as you're not running a high steer kit.
