eh384 I have 33" BFG AT/KO and 16X8 pro comp rims on my 2007 JK. No lift, spacers or anything, and it my DD that I travel about 50 miles of all highway a day. No rubbing at all, and smooth sailing so far.

Looks good.. I am looking into a budget lift or 2.5" basic lift or Leveling kit first, then some 33's soon after...

jeepnpete No lift!! Just the teraflex leveling kit. Kit was like 130 bucks too. I need to post pics with the new bumpers, It gives it such a better look IMHO!

No lift on that Pete? What type of leveling kit did you use? And, btw...yours looks GREAT!!

pmedicj my .02$

If it's a daily driver.....don't do it!

I put in what was thought to be a simple lift, A Teraflex 2.5 coil then needed adjustable control arms, trackbars and now recently driveshafts and I still have a vibration that makes me feel like I am driving on top of gigantic vibrating dildo no matter where my caster is or pinion angle it vibrates! Nobody can diagnose this problem and its drives me INSANE!

should have left it alone, But thats just me! There are plenty of people that don't have this problem.

Google.....JEEP JK VIBRATION and you will see pages and pages of threads. I guess you just have to ask yourself what's it worth to you, how much money do you want to spend and how much time do you have to diagnose these potential problems?

But hey it LOOKS REAL COOL, to bad I dread driving it on the freeway now! though!

If I had it to do over I would have had the dealer install the mopar lift before taking delivery even though it was more expensive they would have been responsible to figure it out and would make it right is what my dealer told me.

to lift or not to lift

hey guys just wanted to get your input on something. Right now i have a stock 2d jeep jk 2011. I was thinking of getting a lift for it but now i think im just going to shove 33's under there (i think they'll fit with little to no rubbing at articulation) for now and getting a rear locker and possibly going with some tube fenders. the metalcloaks will fit 37'' on a jk with no lift. The gearing I think im going to go with 4:88

Would be great to get some feedback about this!
