Looking to Lift with JK wheels
 
Hey guys,
So I'm looking to lift my 06 LJ and throw on some JK rubicon wheels and tires. I know I'll have to get adapters for the bolt alignment, but i really just wanted to know what kind of lift i should get, and if anyone has some pictures of their jeep looking like what I'm trying to accomplish. All help is appreciated.

I used JK wheels because they didn't make mine in a TJ bolt pattern. With the adapters, the JK spacing works great on the TJ.

The question is what size tires? That will dictate the amount of lift.

If you gonna run JK wheels wait to see if you can find the new 2013 JK rubicon wheels. They look awesome!! I saw them at the Jeep dealer. I wouldnt mind having a set...

You guys like the those new wheels? :eek:

My rubi's on a 99 w/ SpiderTrax adapters.
2" RE budget boost.

Looks great! I'm looking at doing about same for my 02 TJ X; but I'm thinking the BDS 2" lift; I can get a great deal from friend who took off the same wheels from his 10 JK. Just waiting to gather the funds; hopefully be done by end of October. Will post pics when complete.

I just put jk 17" rubicon rims and wheels on my 05 rubicon using spidertrax adapters. It is ok for on road, but I'm planning a lift soon also. Need the extra clearance.

Mosahara 09-16-2012 09:55 AM

Thanks for the pic and feedback! I may go ahead and get the adapters now and put the wheels on before the lift. We do 90% road driving but we like to doing moderate trails in the fall now that it has cooled down. Bought my TJ in May with 165xxx miles on it; still has original shocks so the ride is pretty sloppy. Figured I might as well upgrade with the bds lift for new shocks and springs.

Mosahara 09-16-2012 09:59 AM

Just realized the stock rubi will sit higher than my stock x so I probably should do both at same time.

Eric86 09-16-2012 10:08 AM

That's probably true. I've only had rubbing on extreme turns. Just being careful til I get a lift. Planning to do 2" inch lift with 1" BL.
