Here's a set on a Rubi with a 1" body lift. Do that, a 1" MML, and tuck up the belly and gas tank and you've got a sweet sleeper rig.

Oh, I'm sorry. I thought you were just asking about them fitting on a stock Moab wheel....not just a stock suspension.

I figured you meant 285/75, which is what those MT/Rs are.

That 06 Sport has a 2.5" OME kit.

Ok sorry if confusing. I should just stick to a 245/75-16 as stock was huh. I'm sure I'll be playing a little with it so less rubbing the better if it flexes out any.


Can't wait for 5.5 long arm and 35's

That's impressive, how does the susp move at all sitting that low?

I've got 265/75 tires on my rubicon with stock suspension. With the sway bar connected they don't rub.

Do you really think I would be showing this if it didn't work well?

Those tires tuck up perfectly with stock bump stops. Fully articulated the edge of the tread kisses the fender material. The 1" body lift gives just enough extra clearance in order to maintain stock travel.

Yeah nice catch, i knew something was different i just couldnt put my finger on it til i read you post.

That rubi decal is definitely in the wrong place, it should be lower on the hood. Either someone moved the decal or its a fake...

Heres how it came from the factory...

Good eyes fella's! the dealership replaced the stickers when I bought it. It does have d44's with lockers so I believe it's a real rubicon.

Nice just makin sure...wouldnt be the first time someone threw a rubi decal on a sport and sold it as a rubi to someone who didnt know any different, but at least you know makes a rubi a rubi

Looks like that dealer was looking at one too many jk rubi's and forgot what a tj rubi looked like cause with that decal high on the hood like that i thought it was a jk for a split second haha

LOL, a better question is: Who has kept a vehicle for more than 5 years? 10? 20? I would venture to say that less than 1 percent will have the same jeep 5 years from now.

Well hopefully it's a real rubicon haha, it has the correct axles, lockers, rocker guards, and wheels. Is there an easy way to identify the t-case? Sorry to derail the thread

It will say on the rear face of the transfer case, like look at it from the rear axle towards the front. There should be a red emblem that says "new process" 241.
