They are in fact exactly as you point out 17 inch beadlock wheels from AEV with the requered back spacing for running larger tires. The only caveat with them is tire stores don't want to mount them (beadlock wheels) as they have to be done manually. They take too long manhour wise for them to deal with since all 24 bolts on each wheel have to be torqued three times if done properly. I picked up the tires and mounted them myself then returned to have them balanced.

Pushrod looks to have the AEV Pintler beadlocks which are 17" wheels if I recall.

rock krawler 2.5 and 35's. 2 inch bumpstops, no rubbing.
Anything over 3 inches is overkill for 35's.

|Pushrod||You won't regret going to 35's, I can assure you of that. Especially if you go off road very much. The difference in the stock 255 Goodyears and the 35's is very noticeable off road, you don't hang up as bad. I get off road quite a bit and I am very happy with the results.|

|DeezNutz||I'm thinking of going from 33's to 35's! Seems like a lot of work and money though!|

|Ralpho||Hello pushrod. What size rims do you have on your rig?|

2.5 in Rock Krawler X Factor / Toyo 35x12.50
Here is my Jeep with a 2.5 inch Rock Krawler X Factor on Toyo Open Country M/T tires. This lift is a complete suspension replacement and moves the rear axle back to center the tire in the wheel well and clear the pinch seam. It has excellent handling on and off road. Right now I have minor rubbing on rear fenders that need to be trimmed. I like the look this gives my Jeep with a bit lower center of gravity than the higher lifts.

|Kevwylde330||I think I may get the TF tire carrier idk which one to get because they offer a 200,480,690 priced ones and I can't tell what the differences with them, but only thing I'm concerned now is the shock situation because I decided on the 3 inch TF spring coil lift but I'm getting the bilstein 5100 but they offer only 2.5 and 3.5 lift with the shocks and I'm concerned with problems with up and down travel with the shocks I was thinking of going with the 3.5 to help with down travel since I plan on getting TF speed bumps to do speed dirt runs|
|05-04-2013 09:57 AM|
|HK_Runner||Yeah, that TF tire carrier looks good. I use AEVs tire carrier but it is expensive, and actually very overpriced for what you get IMO....like all of AEV's stuff. The TF is great and there are several bumpers that you can also add a tire carrier too. Metalcloak's setup looks very interesting, though all are pricier than the TF option. I suspect Rancho and OME shocks will ride the best. I now know that OME shocks ride very well, and kjeeper has me convinced that Ranchos do too.|

SS-As far as the steering stab goes the stocker should do until it goes bad. Some aftermarket stabilizers push the jeep to the left. I have Rancho's newer 7000 SS and it does have a slight push. smaller, mounted up top of the tie rod but works really well.
SHOCKS- personal choice. The Bilstein's are popular. Rancho currently has a $100 rebate ending in June. Another great option. I know a lot of folks running TF coils and the 9000's. seems to be a great combo.
LCA's- The benefits of front lowers/caster is amazing. Def include those.
For carrier, I don't run one but many like the new TF carrier. I do as well but need to win the lottery first
That's all I got :P

so far this is my shopping cart let me know what you guys think also, Teraflex 3 inch suspension lift with bilstein 5100 shocks [2.5 or 3.5 lift?] front and rear TF monster adjustable track bars, also debating between the bilstein monotube steering stabilizer or the TF steering stabilizer, front lower control arms and rear uppers, TF big brake kit, and Goodyear wrangler MT/R Tires with kevlar.
On another note what tire carriers would you recommend?

3.5 Rock Krawler, stock shafts, no rubbing with 37s. well except for that stock bumper. working on that.
|05-02-2013 11:04 PM|
It all comes down to what trails you plan on running. 2.5" tera will clear 35's and comes with proper bump stops to keep from ripping off fenders. Its designed for mild to moderate trails unless you have a Rubicon.
The 3.5 aev dual sport is a great short arm for moderate trails, decent flex and fantastic on road ride and handling. A tera long arm is designed for a great on road ride and moderate to hard wheeling. The tera fox shocks are really nice with the long arm. And the aev bilstiens work really well with their kit.
Both will give you plenty of clearance for 35's.
Good choice on the manual.
Hope this helps.

|Darkfire||How about a lot of flex, 35" tires, metal cloak 3.5 " dual rate kit ARB edition. Metal cloak fenders, factory drive shaft|
|05-02-2013 09:45 PM|
2 1'2 " lift with 37's .............plenty of flex............no rubbing!!!!!!
|05-02-2013 09:21 AM|
I have a 3" lift with 35's. I have to say if you need articulation on the trail, it isn't enough with stock fender flares. I broke my rear flare and knocked loose both front flares. I am sure it is fine for Mall Crawler rigs but not for trail IMO. So it leaves you with two options. Either go to a 4" left and replace driveshaft or go with 3" lift and get new fender flares like flat fenders to give more clearance.
Here is my 3" lift with 35's and Bushwacker Flats
|05-02-2013 09:12 AM|
My next set will probably be a little wider though since I have ace narrow fenders on the way.

|Savora||I was at 2.5" now at 3.25" on 35s no issues at all with either height, on or off road. I am however bumping up to a 4" LA Rancho (I won it at Jeepbeach this past weekend) and I'm replacing my front drive shaft when I upgrade, along with few other parts.|
