Picture request - Rubicon lifted with stock wheels/tires

Does anyone have any pictures of a Rubicon lifted 2.5-3" with the stock 32s still on?

I was able to get a nice deal on a 3" TeraFlex kit but won't be able to add 35s for another month or so. I'm thinking about installing the lift this weekend but I'll wait if it's going to end up looking goofy on the stock wheels.

Thanks!

I don't have any pics, but I have seen a couple, and it does look a little goofy.

Thanks to everyone. I think it would look a little less awkward on a two door, but I'll be waiting anyways.

^^ that don't look bad...Just toss the lift on. It's just a month anyway. Then when your wheels come you strap up and your good to go.

Well, have a 2 door 2013 Gecho Green Sport up-fitted on Black-Firday with an AEV 2.0" spacer lift, Rubicon OE tires, and 5 AEV matte black Pintler wheels. I'll throw before and after pictures up when it's finished.

I think you can handle all the finger pointing and laughing for a month. If you have the time to lift it now then do it before something comes up.

Customer wanted to keep the stock 32.2" tires, which we have done on a handful of those lifts. As I tell my customers, it is really one of those lifts where you can get away with functionality and look with keeping the stock Rubicon 32.2" tires or upgrading to a 35".

Here is a picture of the same AEV 2.5" suspension lift, but with 35" tires

Just one thing to add/think about. I would not have wanted to drive this with lift and stock tires/rims without wheel spacers. The sway bar links are too close for comfort to the inside of the rims on the rear.

Here is the last picture with 295/65/18 duratracs. (33)

Those pics are amazing!

They definitely look more like a Wrangler when they leave then when they come in.

I don't know if this is of any interest to you, because it's only 2 inch lift,
but here is mine with stock wheels and tires.

Just put a leveling kit on if that's what you want... If u throw 2in coils ur tires are going to look really small

2 inch AEV leveling kit.
Something like 250 bucks at Quadratec, and if you tell them you are the member of this forum - free shipping.
What you are looking at on my Jeep is basically just what you want. 2 inch and 32.

The AEV leveling kit is on my short list along with the daystar. Are you happy with the kit and how it handles etc? I personally like the look of a little lift with smaller tires.

I am no expert here, and I am rather very much knowledge challenged when it comes to Jeep. However, I know what I like and what I don't like. I also know what I want.
When I opted for AEV, I went with them because they fit some of my criteria. I did my research and I learned that they are :
1. Made in US
2. Reputable company
3. Very good quality product
I must say that I like this kit. Did not change the ride of my Jeep. Cost little more then some other leveling kits, but that is understandable (see # 1 above) and I can live with that.
Unlike you, I don't like the look with the smaller tires. I would prefer bigger tires. Reason I kept these tires is simple - I am not rich enough to dump perfectly good new tires, or to sell them dirt cheap.
Hope this helps.
