I did this. I got a set of 17" Rubi rims for my Sport from a friend.

Mine came with the stock 255/75/17 BFG KM1's. A touch of black plasti-dip and all was right with the world.

Except now I...

Arrived just as described. Tested tonight and they're all great. Got'em all set now at 17psi like I usually trail ride. Can't wait to use them on the trail.

Thanks, @derekshep!

I added Rubicon rails + a Rockhard trans/oil pan skid + Rubicon wheels/tires. oh, and a hitch and a little subwoofer. After (just?) that, my suspension went to...

I got this one, too, and it's awesome. Great engineering. But it's hardcore OVERKILL for my 2 door. The carrier alone (before I load it!) is like 40% of my sanctioned tongue weight. That said,...

Welcome to the law of unintended consequences... and Jeep mods.

I added RockHard skids and Rubi rails (and a sub-woofer, and a trailer hitch) before I did any lift. What I experienced was that my 14/55 springs went from jarringly stiff to soft and squishy. The...

Did a spring/shock swap. Went from 14/55's to 18/59's. Way better ride, and got about 1.5 inches of lift. I might have gotten more, but I've added a bunch of weight with my Rubi rails, skids and...

@ibalrit
I used 3 cans. Finished 2 cans and had to go out and buy 2 more. *sigh* Then didn't use the 4th. :facepalm:

I did them off the Jeep, as you can see from the black spots on my driveway...

Sadly I washed off all my mud art from this weekend @ Rausch Creek. I didn't want to, but I needed to clean it up so I can re-install the fender flare I lost, and get ready to install my 18/59...

I don't regret my 2 door at all, even though I wish I had a bit more space some days. Especially the days I need >2 seats.

I got myself a 24"x60" cargo tray for my 2 door with a trailer hitch. A...

On my 2012, I followed this procedure:

I assume your primary concern is theft. There seems to me to be plenty of room in my JK for a bag of clubs. I haven't tried to put my clubs in my new Jeep yet, but I've been snowboarding and have a...

Thanks, guys!

I've put almost 300 miles on my Jeep this weekend, and it sure is a great vehicle to drive. Coming from a Subaru Baja, it's great to be up so high.

Thanks for the welcome!
