As indicated by XJ, you could call those 33s, but really those are just big 32" tires. The spacer lift you're looking at would do great. Follow Kbwwolf's suggestion about steering stops and you'll be good.

To fix that problem with a minor amount of sweat and a couple of washers, read this thread. There are links in there from kjeeper10 and myself that'll give you step-by-step instructions on how to do it. A parakeet could do it, if it had thumbs.

basecamper I installed my AEV spacer lift today with 285R75/16's that measure 33" before install and I'm not sure you would want to go with 35's it seems to me you would have clearance issues

MTH What is the actual size of your tires? How are you running 35" tires on an "all stock" wrangler? Are your wheels stock too?

Better to get a spring lift, but the AEV 2" spacer lift would work fine for what (I think) you wanna do, which is give yourself a little space between tires and fenders. AEV makes good stuff.

MudRunner The sport is no higher than any of the other wranglers, it is most likely just the extra height from your 35s that you are seeing. The AEV spacer BB is generally liked by those who have it as far as I can tell, AEV makes quality products so you can't really go wrong with them (except for the price) but the spacer system is considerably cheaper than their normal suspensions lifts. I'd say go for it

appleman46 It's all factory except for the tires. Maybe it's just me, but the Sport seems like it sits a little higher. I could be wrong though....
01-14-2012 05:14 PM
jhjk29 How is the sport "already kind of lifted"? do you have a small lift on it right now? or is all factory stuff?
