JK Leveling kit "gut check"
 
I bought a used 2007 2 door Wrangler Rubicon 3 months ago (see my profile for pics). The truck is completely stock. Now that I have my tax refund in the bank, I am itching to spend it on the Rubi. It is not my daily driver but I try to drive it as much as possible and it will probably be offroad about one weekend per month.

I wanted to get some validation on my proposed upgrades:
- Teraflex leveling kit (the full spring one, not the spacers)
- New Mamba MR-1 wheels (4.75" offset)
- New Goodyear Wrangler MT/R 305/70/17 (about 34")

Anyone see any problems with this setup ?

Thanks

Your going to get a ton of opinions on that one. Lift and wheels sound fine but I would consider the 285/70/17. About a 33" tall tire but the weight difference is substantial compared to the 35's or 305.....

without fenders the leveling kit may not be enough.....I'd say look at the 2.5" spring lift if you plan on running the 35s

Thanks for the info, I think I talked myself into the 2.5" Teraflex spring lift over the leveling kit.
