2.5 lift and 35x12.5 BFG KM2s. Very ahoy with the setup and performance. I think the stance and look is perfect IMO.

Nice looking jk, what lift you got and how you like it so far?

I just got a 2014 jku sport and I can't decide to go 2.0 or 2.5.
I need something very good on road but good on the trail also.

. It's an AEV 2.5 Dualsport Lift with Geometry correction brackets. Rides very well on highway and around town. Perfect for the Daily Driver.

2.5" coil procomp lift with 35" procomp mt/2 tires.

Sand shows the tread pattern nicely.

About 20k on the tires in these pics

Stop posting pictures of your jeep.....I can not afford new tires lol. I think I like my tire size choice and then I see yours arggggg. it is funny what an extra 1" wider and .5" taller will do.

LOL! Sorry man. We seem to cross paths on several forum threads. It is funny about the small measurable difference vs the "look" difference. Good luck with your build. FYI I weighed my stock rubicon wheels and tires VS the Savegre wheels and 35s. I know you like raw data... See pictures below. The new setup is around 26 lbs heaver that the stock rubicon setup. X4

I installed a JKS adjustable front track bar to re-center the front axel too. Very happy with the setup so far. Drives like stock with a better ride. Procal works excellent with the shift points etc.

Are any of you using your stock carrier, especially those running Duratracs?

If you are what is the Backspace on your wheels and/or are you running a spacer?

BCT, are those N-Fab Nerf Bar Steps on your Jeep? I have been thinking about adding something similar to mine. I think my wife and two girls will appreciate the step.

Yes they are NFABs. They install pretty easy... No drilling

I'm running a 3.5" lift on 35's. Debated 2.5" for the longest time and honestly I'm glad I went with the 3.5". I wouldn't go any smaller. Looks great and runs great.

When I get my RK 2.5" I'll leave my spacers in so I'm hoping it's that high.

Stock with vdp stubby end caps & a mbrp bull. It's happened a few times around town, but I love it when someone asks who makes that front bumper and when I tell 'em it's stock just with caps...No way?!...lol

Most tires run smaller once mounted and installed.

Well I knew that but I bought tires that were supposed to be just under 35's and got 33's. It was upsetting

My 315/70/17 BFG radial all terrains are only 33.25" tall, from what I have read the Duratracs in the same size are even smaller.
