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

It seems that 285/60/18 Nitto Terra Grapplers actually do rub when flexing the truck...

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?
It's a deal. I swear to God it is.

Got some new shoes today..

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.

Thanks, no rescues yet, haha. Its an onboard CO2 Air system for inflating your tires or running air tools.

Great pics. I really like what you've done. Now the only thing you need is a bully bar for the front of the Jeep!

Couple questions... How does the roof rack affect the panoramic view from the interior? (I know, it's trivial)

Also, with the tire mounted on back, how does the rear camera and sensor react when backing up? Did you disable the parking assist system?

Wow, that is one tricked out Jeep. Is that the Rocky Road roof rack? What's the wind noise like at highway speeds?

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

Very cool setup. I'm also looking forward to seeing what you do to the front end!

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.

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??

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!!

thanks man. When the rack is unloaded it doesnt block the view too much, but fully loaded it obviously does.

I have to disable the parking assist. Without the gas cans I can still use the camera, the tire does block some of the view. With the cans, its useless.

Thanks man. Its a Garvin Rack, here is a link to their website. Not much wind noise, but there is some.

The tire carrier just connects only to the hitch, its amazing stable for just having that one point.

Rocky Road is working on a set up for the front, I'm waiting to see what they come up with.
