Evvy Thomas JK I think I got it.. You have the 909 15x8 wheels and the 33x12.5R15LT tires?

Evvy Thomas JK I'm also seeing an abundance of differing TF 2.5 lift kits.. This shit is confusing.

Evvy Thomas JK Sorry to resurrect an old thread. But I too am loving the look and stance of Amangum's Rubi. It's just want im looking for. But Im looking at tires and the sizes confuse the crap out of me. I want to keep 16" wheels. Is that what you have? And what is the exact size of those tires? I'm at tirerack.com and there are 10 different 16" duratracs! I like those wheels too.. Any help?

Just tapping the bumper remounting it dinged the Plasti-Dip in a couple places and touching it up doesn't look as smooth. It stands up to power washing very well though.
If I gather up the guts, I may try that! It looks really good. Do you have any close-ups of the grill so I can see the texture of it?

I really like the black grill, too. Is that something you did yourself or did you purchase a black one?

Will do! I'm horrible with geography, I probably should've heard of Moab before.

MTH's posts actually sold me on the tire/wheel combo.

I'm not familiar with the Moab Easter Jeep Safari or any off-roading event for that matter! I'm totally green to the world of 4x4s. Dare I say I don't even know what the "Moab" is or where it is!

That's my situation. I'll be the occasional off-roader but want something that's going to cut it on both, the trail and the highway.

2.5" Teraflex Lift, 33" Tires, and Wide Stance

I haven't even gotten my JKUR yet and I've already received my Quadratec catalog. Yes, I'm wasting no time on already trying to upgrade my Jeep.

I'll regretfully be spending more time on than off pavement due to a lack of places to off-road in the nearby area, but I just can't be happy with the appearance of a stock Jeep Wrangler.

I'd like to get a minor lift and some larger tires, which also widen the stance a bit. I don't want to go with just a taller tire, as I find the "pizza cutter stance" to be absolutely repulsive.

In the very rare event that I may be blessed with the opportunity to rock crawl one of these days, I want to make sure that those taller, wider tires don't rub any suspension components or fenders if I wind up with the wheel tucked all the way up into the fender-well.

So, anybody's experiences with these types of things would be great, and I'd also like to see some photos!
