Opinions needed on what im buying to Lift my 08 KK

So i have being doing alot of research and decided I was going to get a 2.5" suspension lift from either JeepinbyA.com or the rockfather deluxe. The tires I plan on getting are the Goodyear Duratracs 245/75/r16 and Hoss xd795 16x8 rims. Does sound like everything should work based on what I want to get. If I can go bigger on the tires let me know but I want to make sure there is no rubbing at all. Will the 16x8 rims be to wide? can I add spacers if I want them to stick out a little? Thank for all your help in advanced.

Definatly go with the JBA Adjust-A-Strut assembly. RockyRoad has been known for bad customer service and poorly designed product. Just search for ANYTHING on the forums about them. The Duratracs are nice and 245/75 is safe with a 2.5", you might be able to go to a 255 or 265 but you will need to pound in your pinchweld and maybe do some trimming to the plastics. There is also a rumor that OME might be developing a 2" lift for us guys here in the states.

That is the best news I've had all week. Of course it is only Monday. Where does this rumor originate from? How about an ARB bumper to go with it?
