Installed 33x12.5-15 Duratracs on Level 8 Trackers

Just awesome. Haven't had them offroad yet though...

Ace side rails, Teraflex 2/1" leveling kit, Gorilla locking lugs.

Anyone want to buy a set of sport S wheels/tires with 6500 miles

Bumper is getting chopped next I think

Holy Smokes

Bought daughter 12 Gecko Sport Soft Top 2 weeks ago. Been looking for right wheels/tires.

After spending hours and hours looking and reading just bought Level 8 Trackers, Teraflex, and Nitto Grappler ( Duratracs on list but won't be used off road much). I'm buying the rock slider this week.

Hilarious--small world.

Thanks for the advanced look. It looks great!

Anyone know if I will have any issues putting a 33x12.50r15 duratrac on the spare holder? As far as weight issues?

You'll probably need to extend your bump stops out a couple inches. I used a couple golf balls to make contact with the tires. Others have used 1 1/4 inch hose. This should keep the spare from shaking and cracking the spare mount.

I think it weighs about the same as the stock Rubi or Sahara spares. At least when I took off the Sahara spare and put on the Chaos 5 with DuratrackI got the Daystar bump stop spacers. They work great.

I am extending the bumpstops with a heavy piece of radiator hose i bought at auto zone for $9. Weight wise they felt about the same, and someone weighed this set before and they are within a couple pounds of the stock ones.

adds one inch in the rear and 2 inches in the front. gets rid of the rake in the factory setup. it's just a spring spacer kit with longer swaybar links. easy stuff.

Right behind the tire at 9 and 3 oclock there should be two rubber bump stops that the spare pushes against. If they are missing there will be two 1/2" holes in the tail gate.

REALLY good looking setup! May I ask, any change in the ride from stock at all? Also, what was the change in the mileage, if you cared to check?

I guess maybe you guys didn't do the swap yourselves but the 15" level 8's with 33" duratracs are noticeably lighter than the stock 17 combo

Looks great man. Any chance you could measure the Duratracs to see what they actually measure on the car?

What backspacing do the level 8s have?

Im wondering this as well. This is the combo I wanted to go, and was wondering about spacers.

Can't edit through my phone. Saw another post with similar set up, and he was running the 33x12.50r15 Dura's on15x8's with a -30 offset and a Tera leveling kit, no spacers needed.

Mine are 285/70/17 a little heaver and I really wheel my jeep so it has had a bunch of hits and bangs and my spare hasn't moved. I think the stock carrier is stronger than most people give it credit for. I was sure it would have broken by now not even a crack yet
