Yes, you can. I drove my Jeep to the local tire store and had them remove the TPMS sensors out of the stock tires and put them into the new wheels and mount 35" tires on the new wheels.

I have a hand held Garmin GPS,, I will check rpm at 70 tomorrow.
As far as spacers,, I had the same set up on my 08 and it didn't really cause any issues after 20000 miles. When I put the new rock rails on this weekend it will be better also.
It drives great so far but the front track bar will make it even better.

How is the gas mileage now? Did it suffer? Are you going to leave stock 4:10's on? Did you have to replace the tire carrier to fit the 35 spare?

Thanks!
I had trail grapplers on my last jeep and they saw a fair share of snow and wet roads. They caused me no problems.
I have a LoD rear bumper and tire carrier. I don't think I would want to put these on a stock carrier.
The 4:10s with the new engine and tranny is a great combination. I don't think I will be changing.
I need to put some miles on other than to and from work to really check the MPG but without a doubt with the after market bumpers and the new tires that it will take a hit. But it is what it is for me.

Even though you are able to use the ProCal on your 2012 for what you listed, a 2012 equipped with an auto cannot regear. The current ProCal can't help. AEV is making changes so that the ProCal can adjust the 2012 auto to fix regearing issues. If you use an older ProCal and regear, your auto will go into limp mode and won't work correctly.

CaptFireball Thanks HDRIDER for answering the questions. Enjoy your ride.
10-02-2011 09:07 AM
hdrider Thanks,,
I will try to answer the questions/

I have not calibrated the speedo yet, and it seems it is off by 5 mph according to my Garnin hand held unit

No drive shaft problem yet but it only has 300 miles on it and no real off roading yet.

The lights on the rear LoD bumper are extra lights. I put the switches for the 4 KC lights up fromt and the back lights in the panel just under the steering wheel. I will ghet a couple pictures and post them.

I love the nitto trail grapplers,, and yes I put 1 1/2" spacers on the wheels. I had the nitto trail grapplers on my 08 sahara and like them so much I got a set for the 2012. The are quiet on the road,, clean well when mudding and grip great. Have not done any roacks crawling with them Mainly trails and mud in my area.

The front and rear bumpers were on my 08 sahara also. I liked them so I just switched them over. I ALMOST concidered going with a stubby on the front this time but decided not to.

The lift is a 3" Teraflex with 4 flex arms and Bilstein 5100 shocks. I should have and will put the leveling kit on it also. I did put extended brake lines on up front. I didn't but am ordering tomorrow the fromt adjustable track bar. And I have a set of ARB diff covers to put on but want to get at least 500 miles on it before cputting them on.
I'm also going to order the ACE rock rails this week then I think it will be ready for the trails once I hit 1000 miles.
I think that answered all of the questions,, if not,, ask away.

Rockcrawler2012 Hdrider,

What suspension set up did you put on? I plan on getting a new one next June and this looks just what I had pictured.
10-01-2011 11:17 PM
Smedzjk I must say, your Jeep is an inspiration for me. I had it in my mind that when the time came when I could buy new tires, I would need to buy new wheels also. The stock wheels look great with your setup. How do you like the ARB front bumper? Have you done any crawling with it on yet?
10-01-2011 11:04 PM
TroutSafari They fit that vehicle very well Nice job and enjoy the ride.

Have you calibrated the speedometer yet?

Nice Pics. I have a 2012 Black JKU Rubi and I'm thinking about installing the BDS-Suspension 3" Lift (with all the available options from BDS) and Toyo 35" Tires. I haven't selected a wheels yet. Your JKU looks good with the stock wheels. Maybe I'll keep the stock wheels.

I have three questions if you have time:

1) Have you calibrated the speedometer for 35" tires yet? I see that HyperTech is advertising for the 2012 year model Jeep but not sure if its really available yet for their device. Any weird effects with your auto transmission?

2) Did you have any issues with the lift install effecting your Driveshafts? I've heard anything over 3" you may have to replace the driveshafts if you plan to go off road.

3) Are those extra backup lights on the rear bumper or just additional lights? I want to do this as well. Where did you mount the switch for those lights? Did you use the Daystar Switch Panel or did you drill into the dash panel?

Thanks for your time.
