Milkman do you have a lift on your Jeep? Also what size tires are you running?

Is that matching tires/wheels on the trailer? Nice touch.
It was fun getting it dirty but the $25 spent at the regular car wash to get it manageable (not clean) wasn't. I'm not a big fan of mud, I got that out of my system on my TJ years ago. It is fun rolling down the street in the rain and looking out the mirrors to see all the spray coming off the tires tho, nobody tailgates you

Yep matching wheels and tires all the way around. Love my Level 8 Trackers and the Duratracs, great combination.

Thanks for the comfirmation!

I'm gonna go with the -30 offset, cause I like the wider stance, but it's comforting to know they're both safe :-)

blkunlmtd9 anyone have a pic of the level 8s with the duratracs in a 17' rim??

Mine are 285/70/17 a little heaver and I really wheel my jeep so it has had a bunch of hits and bangs and my spare hasn't moved. I think the stock carrier is stronger than most people give it credit for. I was sure it would have broken by now not even a crack yet
11-18-2013 09:34 PM
MSpiegel00 Can't edit through my phone. Saw another post with similar set up, and he was running the 33x12.50r15 Dura's on15x8's with a -30 offset and a Tera leveling kit, no spacers needed.

keepitsimple Size of the level 8s?
07-30-2013 08:51 PM
ESP Like the level 8s too, here's mine with the same size but km2s.

GreggNY Looks great man. Any chance you could measure the Duratracs to see what they actually measure on the car?

I guess maybe you guys didn't do the swap yourselves but the 15" level 8's with 33" duratracs are noticeably lighter than the stock 17 combo

REALLY good looking setup! May I ask, any change in the ride from stock at all? Also, what was the change in the mileage, if you cared to check?

I wondered why there was two 1/2 inch holes in my tailgate....

Hilarious--small world.

Thanks for the advanced look. It looks great!
Awesome, glad to help

I am extending the bumpstops with a heavy piece of radiator hose i bought at auto zone for $9. Weight wise they felt about the same, and someone weighed this set before and they are within a couple pounds of the stock ones.

I think it weighs about the same as the stock Rubi or Sahara spares. At least when I took off the Sahara spare and put on the Chaos 5 with DuratrackI got the Daystar bump stop spacers. They work great.
