|dawhitesJKU||rotational mass and weight will affect your mpg's. From 33-35, your talking about more weight and bigger mass. I also noticed after i lifted my jeep, i have a very very slight decrease in mpg. i'm guessing that the front ride height which is now leveled is more prone to the effects of wind resistance/and rolling resistance. i was getting high 19's, low 20's...but now i'm stuck on mid 19's ever since i lifted.|

Rubicon’s don’t have any lift over a X/Sport or Sahara. They do have slightly stiffer springs and 32” tires which would make it look “taller” next to a stock Sport or Sahara.
If you throw a 2.5” lift on it you will gain 2.5-4” of lift. Depending on the company. I think Rock Krawler 2.5” gain almost 4” on a 2 door.

Also, would I lose MPGs if I went from a 33 to 35?

Your Rubicon would look the same with rock Krawler 2.5 max travel and 35's.

|MacCTD||My '12 JK with 18 and 58 springs and .75" spacers with 285/70/17, stock wheels no spacers. The springs and spacers added about 2.25" in the front and 1.5" in the rear. Stock springs were 14 and 55.|

|RDroepe||Further research tells me that the JK Rubicon does not come with a 2" lift.|

|ffdisch||I dont think there is a 2" factory lift on the newer Rubi's.... I would look into that more.|

Lift question/pic request
I have a 2011 Rubicon 2 door that I bought mostly built by the previous owner. I want to put a suspension lift on it because at the moment, there is only a Rough Country spacer lift. Anyways, someone told me that the Rubicon has a 2" lift from the factory. So if I was to put a 2.5" lift on it, would that only lift it half an inch more over stock? I plan on running 285s so if anyone has pictures that would be awesome. Also, I don't know if I should keep the spacers on or get rid of them, so any advice on that would be appreciated as well. Thanks.
