Couldn't imagine flexing at all.

Have fun, I look forward to pics and getting to go sometime when I figure out how to I can solve my issues.
You running completely stock except the Rubi tires/rims & the wheel adapters?.

Nope, they were to change the bolt pattern from the WJ 5x5'' to a wrangler that is 5x4.5''.

Pretty much, No lift just Rancho RS5000 Shocks and the rims and tires. A dealership told me that I could fit 245/75/16 under there with out major rubbing as well as I saw a WJ Laredo with no lift running same size but diff rim and tire and looked fine.

Minor rubbing at the ends of the turning radius I could deal with. But I would not call Half a steering wheel turn minor.









But I really did dig the looks of it over the stock rims. I don't know about the rest of you?

I ran 245/75-16's w/o any major rubbing however two things were different:
1) My AT's are less aggressive so they fit easier
2) You'll need a lift now to make those work.






So, how long until you lift it? Winter is a perfect time to mod your Jeep

I should probably take this off topic posts to a new thread.

Because I have many questions about the lift if it will truly solve my problems because cost is a big thing right now.

How was the trip?

By the way, I am anxious to hear how the trip did go? It sounded like there was going to be a fairly big group?
