Installed my Teraflex leveling kit

Love it!!!!!
Want a set of tires but will need to wear these down a bit before I can justify them to the Mrs. Think I'll do the stubby bumper mod next.
Do I sound as giddy as a school girl?
lovin this jeep, maybe even more than my Harley.

Not to make matters worse for you, but I also have the TF leveling kit and was able to convince the wife on new tires and wheels. If you check out DTD, you can get some killer deals. Join Tread Lightly for $25.00, you get a $100.00 discount with DTD AND a $100 mail in rebate if you buy Goodyear tires. "The Combo" seems to be MB72s and Duratracs. I went with Blackrock Vipers (15s) and Duratrac 33s. After all is said and done and I sell my stockers, I'll only have about $900 in this set up. Not too bad!

Sounds like a good deal I'll check into it. I got one quote for 5 285/70/17's for about $1100. Thanks for the info.

Can you do the TF leveling kit with stock wheels w/o spacers? I have the 18" stock sahara wheels.

Look under at the sway bar connector. Imagine it 2 inches taller... will it rub the tire? I think you are safe not getting spacers. Although if you run the spacer lift and no spacers I personally think the wheels sit in too far and looks odd. Just my opinion. I did the leveling kit install and spacers... great starting point. then added the Nittos... Nice starting point......

Yep.. TF recommends spacers with- I think, all their lifts.

The rear sway link runs awfully close to the stock wheel. it's poor backspacing keeps the wheel tucked under the flare.

Do you need them? No, but do you risk damage especially if you venture off road and flex a little-yes.

I am running wheel spacers until I buy new tires/wheels.

Just checked it says this "You can run a 33-34" tall tire with this kit. If you prefer to run the factory wheels you may need wheel spacers for proper clearance."

I good idea for off roading. Better safe than sorry...

I ran my stock wheels and tires with no spacers with the leveling kit for 7 months. No issues at all.

4fit does it matter what stock wheel is on there? I have the 18" sahara wheels. Idk if having the 17" sport or rubicon wheel instead matters
