Just shoot him a message on here....his screen name is JOCJK. Just tell him you're new around here and ask him if he still has his wheels, tires, and leveling kit.

Wheels and Tires

Hey Debbie,

Couldn't figure out how to attach pics in a PM so I'll just post them here. They are 16 inch MB Chaos 5 Wheels and 285/75/16 Goodyear Duratrac's. I also have the leveling kit to go along with it. While you can run this combo without a lift it does rub at full turns and on even the lightest trail. I was extremely happy with the look and ride with the Teraflex Leveling kit. I also have a set of Rubi Shocks that will improve the ride of a sport if you're interested in those at all.

Shoot me a pm or feel free to give me a call. 970-4zero6-889three.
John

TBH, great package... if its the rubbing on the fenders that is the issue, that can be solved pretty easily if you want to.

Here is my cheaper than hell lift and it works great for me.
Stiffest Rubicon springs you can find. I got mine for 50$ from a guy in the springs.
Daystar 1 3/4" lift pucks. I got for 150$ from 4wheel parts.
Rear sway bar links for the front sway bar. Spent 30$ from Bach crawlers.
And then chop the front fenders. About 30$ if u got someone to lend u the tools

The newly chopped fenders

I still need a track bar bracket for the rear and longer shocks. But looking good I think for $230 not including new shoes and sliders. And I don't have any shimmy or death wobble.

Just drive your jeep on the trails and it'll help you decide.

No worries Debbie! I'm pretty content with my 33's for the moment anyway so I'm happy to hold onto them.
Good luck with the modding process, its addictive and expensive but super fun.

That's the best way to go about it IMO. Take it out to the trails to see what your comfortable with and then mod from there. A stock JK will do most of the trails in CO.

I have a 13 JKU w/ 315/70/17 GY Duratracs (they are a 34" tire) with a 3.73 posi axle ratio I also have a 2 1/2" Rock Krawler Lift. The package is awesome the ride and performance is still very good. Just one note if you don't have the 3.73 your performance will suffer with the 33". Like the others say I would stay with 17" wheels if you can find a style that you like.

I have 3.21 and 35s. I'll admit I suffer a bit. But as long as I don't have a serious headwind its not bad. Oh I have a manual though
