Thanks man very much appreciated, ill post some pics in a new thread in a bit.

It did actually require minor trimming to air dam since it rubbed a little bit at full steering lock.

Please let me know what you think

Even at full steering lock?

Another thing is that the rubicon comes with rock rails instead of side steps, and they pass the rear fender, would that touch?

The link will show a picture of what I'm talking about


Cheers thanks again

Help required with wheels & tires on specific size

Hello, I'm a new member here from Bahrain (middle east) and I've currently purchased my 3rd JK wrangler.

This is my first time to mod the car and I've already purchased some wheels and tires after doing some research but now that I've received the package I feel like they will rub.

I currently have a 2013 Jeep wrangler rubicon

The wheels I've got are XD Monsters 18"x9 with 4.5 backspacing and -12mm offset with Goodyear duratecs 275/70/18

I would very much appreciate it if some one could tell me if these would rub what so ever without a lift? As they seem too big not to rub.

Should I go ahead and install them or should I lift the car first?

I was thinking of a 2" MOPAR lift kit with fox shocks

Thank you in advance and I'm sorry if this subject has been repeated many times. I couldn't find any help when i searched.
