Purchased it 2 days ago and put a 3" lift on it last night and putting 35x12.50x16 tires on it today.
What next? Also what can I expect this thing to go through with the BFG MTR's? Last but not least, is there anyone who has used a hypertech programmer that can tell me how good it is. I have the automatic and want to get some of the power back that the 35's are stealing.
Congrats and welcome!!! You'll probably need to address the gearing to get some of the power back after installing the 35's. I'm not sure what gears your X has, but even with the 4:10s that the Rubi's come with, 35's are pushing it. Depending on your driving style, terrain, and weight of your right foot, you may need to beef the axles up a bit and if the stock tie rod on the JKs is as cheezy as the TJs, you'll want to replace that quick as the 35's are just too much for the cheezy stock tie rod to handle.
