keepitsimple You just sold me! I located a 2013 commando jk but been contemplating to get a 14. Making the purchase happen this weekend. Maybe rims and tires in two weeks. Thank you sir.

ESP Double check your backspacing on the wheels you mentioned. Level 8 trackers are offered in 3.32 but 3.75 is safer bet. Anything more is too much for the calipers with a 15x8 wheel. You need to stick with either 3.75 or 4.0 for a 15x8 alloy wheel on a JK. Here is a pic of mine.

33x12.5R15 BFG KM2s on 15x8 Level 8 trackers with 3.75" of backspacing and -19mm offset. No lift.

keepitsimple Discount tire is the easiest/best to order from?

BobU05 That's the same setup that I am running and I really like it. I ran it for several months without the leveling kit with zero problems. I did put the leveling kit on just because I liked the look better. Also, I didn't transfer my sensors, kind of a pain to do as I sold the other wheels and tires. I said I was going to get the Procal almost a year ago and still haven't gotten to it yet. Good luck with your choice!

keepitsimple Might hold off on the leveling kit then. Thanks

tabber02 that looks pretty good. leveling kit isn't necessary with 33s, but it will give your jeep a nicer stance IMO... and TeraFlex makes a good one...

something else i'll throw out there. ditch the tpms all together. AEV procal another good choice.. does lots of things. including disabling your tpms...

get in the habit of checking your tire pressure once in a while (like every time you get gas or something...)

you shouldn't have any issues with needing to trim anything.

Wheel/Tire Newb. Double checking if this is right.

Jeep Information: 2013 JK.

Suspension setup: Stock suspension.

Tires-
Make: Duratracs
Size: 33X12.50

Wheels
Make: Level 8 Trackers
Size: 15X8 Level 8 Trackers with 3.32" backspacing/-30 offset.
Additional: Swap the TMPS over to the new tires.

Suspension upgrade: If i plan on sticking with 33's then a leveling kit is all that is needed. IF i decide i want to go 35+ or just raise the jeep then I will need a lift kit of some sort.

Electronics: AEC Procal- set the psi reading to 30 abut have it actually set to 32. Set the Jeep's ECU about your new tires and differential gear ratios so the speedo is accurate and the automatic transmission shift points are correct.

The jeep is going to be my daily but I want to start adventuring out on some trails and see where it takes me.

Leveling kit recommendations? Teraflex 1155200 Leveling kit?

AM I going to have to do any additional alterations with this setup? Cutting the bumper?

Anything you suggest that I upgrade while I am at it?
Whats a good place to source out these parts?
Any and all else

Thanks in advance!
