Pics of Rubicon Express 2" lift?

Hey guys! I have a 2003 Rubicon completely stock. I was wanting to see pics of the Rubicon Express 2 inch budget boost on your rides if you have it. My plan would be to do the RE 2" boost with a JKS 1.25" body lift. Any pics of these would be very appreciated! Thanks a lot!

Hey thanks guys, that jeep looks really good! Any other pics would be much appreciated! Also just another quick question if anybody knows. I planned on getting 33s along with the lift. I wanted to keep my stock rubicon wheels. Can I get 33s to fit on these wheels? What's the biggest tire you can run on a stock rubicon wheel? Thanks a lot for any help!

you can pretty much fit up to any 16" rim compatible tire you want on them. I'm considering going back to a 16" rim for weekend trail runs... there is a local guy selling his used 37"sticky maxxis creepies for 16" rims.

tires made for 16" rims mostly labled in metric measurement. I think 305/75/16 are basically 33"x12"x16" tires

Depending on the width of the tires you go with, you may have an issue with backspacing. I could have run 10" wide tires on my stock rims, but the 12" wide ones would have required spacers to avoid rubbing. A new set of rims was cheaper than a set of spacers, plus I was able to sell my stock rims for more than I paid for the new ones.

RE 2" BB and JKS 1.25" BL with 33x12.50 BFG MTs on 15x8 Cragar Soft 8s w/4" BS








if i did that lift setup again, i would add a 3/4" spacer on top of the 2" spacer up front to level it out. it will look better and give you more room for the 33s. the 33s fit, but are tight when disco'd. i would not have done it any other way though.

I'm glad someone asked this. I'm getting ready to do the same thing. This makes me more anxious.
