From what I've gathered. You can lift the non-QL jeep with the 2.5'' lift. QL restricts tire size becuase they can't lock in the 2.5'' lift mode. It goes back to the normal height at driving speed. Bottom line you can fit bigger tires on the non-QL jeep than a QL jeep only becuase the non-QL jeep can have the 2.5'' suspension lift installed.
One other thing I have thought about is just because the QL will lift the body 2.5" for clearance at low speed doesn't necessarily mean that driveline or suspension angles are ok for high speed highway travel for long distances. I'm not sure when or if it will cause long term wear or alignment issues, but it's something to consider. Time will tell I suppose
This is my buddies jeep. He's on **********.org. Username : Nlowell. The tires are 275/65/18. (31.7") rims are stock 18's powder coated black. He has the QLII so no lift. I believe this was taken at OR2 setting so 2.5" above "normal" ride height.
Hey you wanna buy a boat man?

So my GF just got her new wheels and tires today. Pretty excited for her as its new to her and first set of wheels she has bought. I ordered her Toyo Proxes ST II 285/45r22 and they are mounted on 22x9.5 (preferred the 8" wide but they were out of stock..) +13mm offset. They just kiss the front side of the fender flare while turning under compression. The outside of the tire is right off the edge of the flare, just how I wanted. Let me know what you think
Im gona lower the rear about an 1-1.5" and add bags to the coils in the next week.
Bully bars are junk! Expensive hollow metal that will crunch under barely any pressure. It wouldnt work with his rig since he actually has some nice upgrades for off road. Quoting the pictures is also annoying. Makes the thread too long.

Does that tire carrier only connect to the receiver hitch, or are there other points of contact as well?

So has anybody found a way to recalibrate the speedo for the tire size change??? I just added 285/45r22's and the speedo reads almost 3 mph off. 72-73 at 70. Can the dealer change it or is a programmer/downloader needed??
I actually love my Terra Grapplers. They will give you a quiet ride. I'm running 275/65/18s, so I can't help you size wise, but mine have never rubbed (on or off road). You could do some calculations and compare sizes.
Sounds great! Love the photos you posted earlier. Can I ask? How aggressively have you used these off road? Have you hit the bump stops at speed? I plan to use mine in situations I know will fully compress the suspension from time-to-time, (i.e. driving on sand at high speed). I thought I had better double and triple check before I make my purchase. The prices over here in Australia are pretty steep, they are asking $550 per tire for a BF Goodrich AT in that size!!
