Here are a link to the photos from the Rubicon that our JK was on.

plus there are some from moab this your and there are some great JK's wheeling. Joe from Absolute off road and our JK and the guys from rock krawler suspension. There rigs work great.

Absolute Offroad Yes. 4" will work. OR you could keep your stock wheels and use a 1.5" wheel spacer. These have become so popular, I usually keep 4 sets in stock....

Meant to say late tuesday, not sure what day it is...too many 12 hour overtime days at the plant!

I thought about wheel spacers temporarily and keep my factory 17" for now to save a little cash-just not sure, I've read so many mixed emotions on the subject...Wonder what backspacing the factory rims have? Anyone know?

JEEPers thanks, I appreciate that-I will check back tomorrow sometime. can I get the daystar lift thru you or do I have to go thru 4 wheel parts or something.?

thedon I have 35-12.50 x 17"s on our JK. I'll have to find out on back spacing on Tuesday when the Jeep gets back from running the Rubicon trail.

Joe or others with info...

Let's say I purchase and install a Daystar 1 3/4" lift. Now I want to get some bigger tires, let's say 35's. I want 16x8, 5 on 5, the only backspacing I have found is 4"...will that work? Next question...tires, can I get away with a 13.5" wide on an 8" rim or do I need to stick with the 12.5"? Any info would be appreciated. thanks for your time.
