Biggest tires on the JBA 4"

I'm sure it's been said already, but what is the largest tire that can fit under the JBA 4" coilover without major mods? Obviously I'm sure regearing will be required, but curious as a number.

32s will fit. Can't go larger than that unless you wanna start cutting lol. Most prefer the wider 265/75-16 compared to a skinnier 32.

Yea I'd rather go as big and as wide as I can go.

That's my friend's KK. 265/75-16s and JBA 4" lift. He has it set for about 4.5" of lift in the front. I think the back is around 5". It looks great in person. Only problem is you're looking at 4K for the 4" lift.

Yea I know, between $3200-$4500 depending on silver, gold or platinum. That's my next question, what's the difference?

Platinum is built using Fox shocks. Silver and Gold are Bilstein shocks, the difference is which shocks you get. I've been told Fox has some of the best shocks out there, but I honestly don't know. For someone like me though, I'm better off piecing it together since I already have the a-arms.

Yea well I think fox shocks are racing shocks. Though I could be wrong. And your right. Guess your half way there. Lol

Honestly, the struts are about 1500 and the arms are 400. That's the bulk of it. Depending on rear shocks you could be looking at a lot as well.

Gotta say though BMX, your friend has a pretty sick ride. You have any other photos of it? Direct side/front/rear shots? Is he local to us? Have it 'll installed locally or by himself?

If you're going to 32s on a KK, I would strongly suggest that you go to 4.56 gears as well

It's Jeepin_it_reel's KK. Not sure if he's on here, but he is on LOST. And yea, lives in Bethpage actually. I think he has a build thread on LOST. I don't know the last time he updated it though. I know he's rocking a RockLizard bumper now(that I have yet to see lol). As for install, we started it in his driveway, but he had a bolt that none of us could get free. After that weekend he didn't have time to do it himself so I think he took it to a shop. I don't remember honestly lol. It is a beast in person.

Oh and Tom, he's running 4.56s. He loves em...
