Not yet; has 265/75 which are about 31.5.
Going to 285/75 in a couple weeks, and building a new bumper so they don't eat the stocker plastic.
At flex it rubs good on the bumper and inner liner now.

they were supposed to be 6.5" rock krawler springs. They seem really tall hence my question of "does anyone make 8.5" springs" they're really soft which is a good thing but just seem really tall

If they were used, then you would have thought the settling would have already occurred. Odd. That's way too tall.

yeah that was my thought but they were out of the jeep for a long time so a guy can hope :-) I hope my isos smash quickly and hope when I finish lifting the front it moves weight bias to the rear a bit to lower it too. Fwiw it's about an inch taller than my friends gc with the same lift that's been on there for 8 years
