ljvsnyder I was surprised that on the jeep with 35 psi the tires only measure 31.75" a full 2 inches smaller than advertised.

pazbich3 Thanks, must be the camera angle or the Duratrac tires...they definitely looked much larger when I put the stock Sport tires beside the new ones.

ljvsnyder Looks good. The tires look much bigger. I am running the dame size, but they don't look that big.

pazbich3 I'm pretty sure it's 1" for the back spacer? They are rough estimates, but that's what I measured...

Come to think of it, my "pre-measure" had all my equipment and lift kit in the back trunk of the jeep so that could have weighed it down a little more to give that discrepancy.

I can't tell you how or why I got 2+ inches but yes I'm running factory bumpers. I didn't need anything else than what came in the kit and I'm very happy
Plus I have 20s on 35 size tire. No issues aside from a little trim.

$ for $ you couldn't find a more effective and efficient way to lift a Jeep than with set up.
PLUS: I got the 9000 series shocks with mine that are awesome!

Disconnect and full flex, 33" duratrac is the absolute max. Not sure the true height, but whatever its listed as, their is less then 1/4" on full flex. This is on a 15" rim. Hope this helps!

**im looking into flat fenders to get another 2" and try to squeeze 37's on... Should be interesting!

shearpinn Awesome & informative responses. Will be picking this up in a couple weeks with the 9000s included.

zak21 I am running a 2door with 35x12.50 r15's and I did have to trim my fenders for off road driving with the front sway disconnected.

My tires also stick out farther on the 15's so you may get away with no trimming.

I just don't want to run into troubles either way down the road.

For the record, I have a 4-door JKU and will eentually be putting a winch and bumper on the front end hopefully this fall.

Thanks!
As mentioned adding that spacer is easy if needed up front.

I'm fairly confident that most would rather pay $50-$100 dollars more to avoid all the issues and headaches caused by mixing stock and aftermarket coils, and then having to chase an elusive proper stance by adding spacers all over the Jeep. Throw in the fact that stock coils tend to sag over time, and the entire setup becomes a total disaster.

They could avoid all of that by simply adding a matching set of rear coils instead of rear spacers. If that costs a few dollars more, then so be it.

I simply cannot recommend this kit, as is, to anyone. The adjustable shocks? Absolutely! But, the rear setup needs to be re-worked...
Oh wagonburner...I am with you....I think the only way to go is full coils. Wish they had them..I'd be all in..

thanks
