Teraflex spacer leveling kit w/285 75 17

285 75 17 BFG KO2’s with a Teraflex spacer leveling kit. Stock Willys wheels with 1.5 spacers.

It rides better than the mud terrains.
It’s quieter. No discernible difference in performance with 3:73 gears and manual transmission. Currently the pressure is 35. I need to lower it, but I just got the tires installed yesterday.

Looks good, that's a really doable combo. The Bilstein 1.5-3.5 shocks are also a good match for that setup.

@Pressurized , are these the Bilsteins you are talking about?

Front: https://www.northridge4x4.com/part/s...as-shock-front

Rear:https://www.northridge4x4.com/part/s...gas-shock-rear


I was also considering doing the TF Level, and was also mildly contemplating some new shocks as well. Now before I considered the leveling kit, I would have had to go with the 4600 series "stock height" Bilsteins (the super loud yellow ones ). But when I was chatting with a gentleman at Northridge, he suggested that these 5100s would work since the TF kit is a "1.5 inch" kit.

However, if you look up the same shocks thru QTec, XT, etc, they are listed as "2-3.5 inch lift" shocks. And chats with both of them were counter to what Northridge said, and that I should stick with the stock size 4600s. Thoughts?

QTec for reference:

Front:https://www.quadratec.com/products/16070_216_14.htm

Rear: https://www.quadratec.com/products/16070_217_14.htm

Northridge is correct... You can run those directly with the TF 1.5 lift. Most of the suppliers have a set price that gets you a little discount over the individual price.

Well thatís good to hear. I will probably go with those 1.5 inch Bilís then, if thatís what youíd recommend. Thanks for the clarification.


Also nice to make your acquaintance; Iíve been perusing the forum for info since I got my JK but just now got registered, but you always seem to be knowledgeable and very willing to help. Even FNGs like me haha. Cheers.

Appreciate the kind words! We have some super knowledgeable guys/gals here. And they are enthusiasts not motivated by $$... Since they aren't making a profit on their advice, it's usually of the highest quality.

Our forum sponsors are awesome too, but you'll often find their recommendations are to the product they sell.

@Brwolfjr , what size is that stock willys wheel? I was considering running some 285s myself with the level (probably 285/70/17) and I am keeping my anniversary wheels which are 17x7.5 with 5.5 BS if I'm not mistaken. Just need to do a quick check and make sure those will fit on my wheels...

I had a massive wall of text I posted in another thread (https://www.wranglerforum.com/f27/la...l#post34393699) where I was asking similar questions. I am not sure that I want to run spacers so that is really limiting my tire size selection. @Pressurized , if you get a quick minute, would you mind checking it out and provide some feed back? I'd really appreciate it.

@jethro65 the stock Willys wheels are 17 x 7.5 with the same back space as you.
I was considering going 285 70 75, but than I came across a couple of threads with the 75 series. I am so glad I went taller.

That's tempting as well to help fill out that wheel well, but I am trying to avoid spacers if I can, so I think 285 is about my limit, and that's if I'm super lucky since each rig is a little different. It does seem the 285s with a level are a common setup, so if I think I can get those to work I may just go that route. If only there was a way I could test a set...

Head east towards Philadelphia. You can try my wheels on for size.

Backspacing on the stock wheels is 6.25" not 5.5"

Here is a pic when I was running the stock Moab wheels (same BS as any of the alloy JK stock wheels) with a 1.5" hubcentric spacer and 285/70-17.

Huh. Probably good to know. I was going off of QTec's data (haven't measured them myself) and they list it as 17x7.5, 5.5 BS, 32mm offset
https://www.quadratec.com/p/mopar/75...ep-wrangler-jk

Tried googling the wheel but couldn't find much. This other random site (https://www.hubcaphaven.com/p/23753/...true#frame-one) lists it as a 44mm offset. Doesn't give the BS, but I don't know if the 44 is a giveaway that it's 6.25" (still not quite familiar with how all of this works).

So then if it IS a 6.25" BS, that confuses me even more as to how I have claims of 2 individuals running the same TF level and some 285s without spacers. (https://www.wranglerforum.com/f274/2...470969-35.html) Reference starting with post #1025; one has had no rubbing, one has had 1 instance of SLIGHT rub. I wonder then if I should just go with some 265/70/16s and call it a day (those should fit right??? consensus seems to be yes)

Does the 75th have some different suspension components, to where rub is less likely maybe? Ugh this makes my head hurt...

https://www.hubcaphaven.com/c/415/je...eels_rims.html

44.4mm BS just like all of the other OEM JK alloy wheels. Quadratec, and others, have been known to publish incorrect information. And no there is nothing different in the steering or suspension components on a 75th anniversary edition. Don't overthink this. As far as 2 others saying no rubbing without spacers, they must never travel on anything more challenging than a fire road. If you go offroad and flex at all you will rub.

@RhinoSportJKU Yeah I mean that one person just claimed they rode "light and moderate rated trails at Moab with no issues" but I'm sure I'll be better off listening to the experienced forum members. @Pressurized has given me the same info as yours above also.

So I think I'm about narrowed down to:
1) Stock sized 245/75/17

2) 255/80/17. Those will give me a height of ~33 but about the same width as stock to avoid rub, without spacers. Some good all around tires in this size are the RGs, ST Maxx and the AT II. Any thoughts or input on any of those?

3) Break down and run spacers and run 285/70/17. If I do this, what spacers should I go with, Spidertrax? And what size? Would 1.5 be all I need?

In general I was originally thinking KO2s, since they have such a good track record, but do you have any other recommendations?

Sorry to keep spinning my wheels, just want to make a decent decision here.

Personally, I had no issues with the spacers at all and any of the name brands sold by the major vendors are good quality. I used Red Rock but no one ever said anything bad about the Spidertrax just that they are a bit pricier for the same 6061 aluminum.

I now run aftermarket wheels, and with the combo I'm running I have less unsprung weight than I did running the stock Moab wheels with the spacers, and the 285/70-17 Terra Grapplers. Over time the less unsprung weight should give you better life out of your ball joints and tie rod ends. Also you keep your scrub radius smaller, but that's a topic that for the normal Jeeper isn't even worth going into here.

Bottom line, if you stick with the stock wheels and no spacers and a tire that is not considerably wider than the OEM tires you should be great. Tire choices are like asking what brand of oil you prefer............if you ask 10 people you'll get 8 different opinions. Any that you are considering are considered excellent by most everyone here.

Understood. As much as I'd like to get some new wheels (would love the bronze Rhinos...) I don't know if I can justify getting rid of the 75th wheels right now. And if I sold them I feel like I would regret it for some reason...

OK last thing then I think: for the time being, the largest tire I'd be going up to is a 33; either something like the 255/80 (~33) or the 285/70 (a little under) if I go spacers. Is that gonna be enough of an effect, coming from a 31.5, to warrant a Procal purchase? I'd hate to buy it just for a one time use, unless I did decide to do a complete lift in the future. Unless some shops have them and could do it for you? Also, as far as I know, I just have the basic 3.21 gearing. Will it be a major hit to my jeep's power at all? (From my posts you could probably tell I'll be 95% pavement, mostly highway)

Also if I do 33s, might have to look into an upgraded tire carrier.......

The stock 255/75-17 Goodyears are 32.1" tall. Most of the 285/70-17's are 32.6" tall. Not enough to affect your speedo much. That said, I did pop for the Procal F5, because with an auto tranny it does improve performance by adjusting the shift points. My wife could tell the difference from before and after adjusting with the Procal, so there's that. I didn't mind the money for the Procal because it does do a few other things that are nice. That being said, there are many using a much cheaper OBD II plug in with some phone apps that will do the same thing. Maybe someone will chime in on that because that's a bit more high tech than I am.

@RhinoSportJKU I believe the stock Goodyears on the 75th are 245/75/17. Or at least that's what is on mine; IDK if the previous owners put something else on, but I've got 245/75 SilentArmors.

Honestly, the more I think about it, I am thinking of just running stock size again (but a better tire). I was contemplating throwing on the TF level, but honestly the rake doesn't bother me at all; I think i just WANT it because a lot of people have it. And I think that's another part of what's making my decision(s) harder; not only was I trying to find something for my stock wheels and no spacers, but I am also trying to pick something out that will fill out the wheel well a little more. They currently fill out the wheel well fine in my eyes; if I don't do the level, which honestly is unnecessary, then that's a non issue and stocks will work just fine. Probably better just to keep it all stock for now, and then whenever I am ready/able to go full lift, do everything then. Like you said, I think I'm overthinking it. When the time is right, just do it all and do it right.

Plus, as I was reading in another post which had a very valid point, people underestimate the capability of a stock JK. Which is to say, that's even if I had the chance or opportunity to go (light) offroading some time in the near future, so again, non-issue.

Well I've wasted enough of your time, and I'll think a little more, but I do believe I'll just stay stock until the time is right. KISS, right? Thanks for all of your input. Cheers.

Running 285-70-17 Hakkapeliitta snow tires on Grand Cherokee 17" rims. I ran 1.5" spacers on the wheels with no rubbing.

Mind dropping a pic? Don't see a lot of GCs with 285s, at least in my area.

That would be interesting. Actually the snow tires I am running on hers are on WK wheels.
