wrath0r This is a similar setup to what I'm looking to do.

285/70/17 (33"x11.5") tire
17"x8" wheel with a 10mm offset (4.89" backspace)
Teraflex 1.5" Performance leveling kit

I'm still concerned about rubbing though. :/

I've been in a few parking garages that have the bar at 6'10" or 6'9" and i've been fine. I don't know how accurate those measurements actually are, however.
I've got the spacer leveling kit.

With your setup you won't have to worry. You won't be over 7'. Some home garages are lower though so you may want to make sure you have height there.

Hayseed_JK Using stock 18" wheels with 275/65r18 duratracs, do I need wheel spacers with this leveling kit? Any rubbing issues? May be a while before I would go 33".

How have your Grabbers been? I've been looking at the Grabbers in that same size. Also what backspacing do you have?
10-08-2014 01:44 PM
Panthers1521 Wow this looks great! I think this is what I am leaning toward. I truly dont need anything to hard core considering i will be on the highway most of the time and this set up will have minimal effect on my MPG. anything more than a 1.5 and the 33" start to look small.
04-07-2014 09:20 AM
VansMudder Yeah the stock shocks are good for up to 2" of lift. Most aftermarket shocks will list their fitment sizes the lowest starting from 0" to 2 " of lift then they move up from there for taller lifts.

1.) Will the 1" spacers made for the rear fit in the front?

Any insight?
On the TF leveling kit im familiar with the front pucks come in two 1" discs per side and the rears are a completely different size and shape so no they only work for the rear. But if this is indeed what you want to do just buy two 1" pucks I believe they sell them individually and don't worry about the rears or the end links, they should be fine as well. If you do buy the whole kit and use the 2 1" pucks for each side in the front the end links will prob need to be replaced, im not sure what the cut off is on that.


just realized you said you already have the 1" pucks...haha those are for the front.

I just want to run 33" x 12.5 duratracs as this is my daily driver
everyone likes to throw the term Rubi Springs around, there is no such animal also there is no difference between 2 door springs and 4 door springs. you will gain height with the leveling kit.
03-31-2014 09:50 AM
VansMudder I've had my sport parked beside numerous rubi's before my leveling lift and we were exactly the same height. I think the Rubi coils are a bit more robust is all. Most here that have 2 doors go with 4 door springs as it gives you a fair bit of lift as the 4 doors are a quarter ton heavier and have taller springs to compensate for the added weight.

Yea you won't need a track bar or adj control arms.

4 wheel parts, Jeep Masters and two other garages in Austin area are telling me its necessary to do a front end alignment. I was hoping to have a local garage perform the install but all the shops around here quote 3-4 hours of labor which appears to be a bit out of place based on how long I hear a few guys state it takes to do in their driveways. Basically around a total of $500.00 to $550.00 for the parts and labor. Is this out of line?

If that cost includes the Performanc leveling kit ( coils ) and the install that sounds about right. Just curious I called a local shop to see what they charged to install the lift and they said $320 which included an alignment.

as another person said, you can definitely do it yourself and it will help u learn about your jeep. I did mine in my driveway with a neighbor. I had never done anything like this before and it was pretty straight forward. I did an alignment bc I didn't want to take a chance in damaging brand new tires.

stock wheels don't have the back spacing needed to avoid the rubbing. Spacers are needed. A leveling kit will not help this.

dhc-6 I installed the Tera flex pucks in 1:20 from start to finish, no front alignment needed and it took me just a couple minutes to straighten the steering wheel.
03-26-2014 04:27 PM
hypoxic1911 I did the install myself with some help from a friend. I had previously never even taken a tire off, so it CAN be done by someone with limited experience, but willing to go slow. Having said that, I did majorly screw up the first step and disconnected both rear lower control arms!!!! that really sucked and it took 3 hours to get the bolts back in. So I did need an alignment after that. If you can get one cheap enough I don't see why it would hurt. Bottom line is that I learned a ton about what is going on under my jeep and will not be afraid when I want to change out my chocks next
