RC 2.5" lift

I was wondering if 33's could fit a rough country 2.5 inch lift with out rubbing during everyday driving or is 32 the better? Thanks.

I like mine but ended up putting a 1.75 spacer on the front coils to make it level, i think i ended up with more lift in the rear. I also bought the 4cyl kit. The ride is better than stock in my opinion. First two are with the front coil spring spacer added and the last is just the 2.5 kit with 31s.



edit: kindof can see the front 'saggin' a little on the last picture

Stock



RC 2.5 Lift, stock rubi wheels/tires



RC 2.5 Lift, 33x12.50x15 on 15x8 soft 8's



i had a small amount of rubbing at full steering lock with the new 33's, was cured by just 1 washer on each steering bumpstop, other than that no onroad driving caused any rubbing, and only slight fender flare rubbing during mild offroading, given i did not disco my swaybar, though i am sure if i did it would have rubbed alot, got a 1.25 bl/mml downstairs waiting to go on once my back feels better

RC 2.5, 1" body lift, 35's.




"Rubbing" has to do with bump stop length, shock length, and tire size. Get it all right and maintain a streetable level of up travel (4-5") and you'll be good to go.

His jeep is a 4cyl jeep with the rc 2.5 6 cyl springs...so he is going to sit higher than someone with a 6 cyl jeep and the 2.5 with the 6 cyl springs THUS making the tires look smaller.

And idk why but for some reasons rubicons dont sit as high with the 2.5 as non rubi's do. Rubicons ALSO weigh about 150 lbs heavier than a TJ sport, so combine that with the I6, maybe the springs compress more? IDK it's a mystery

I think part of it is how skinny they are so it's a bit deceiving. It does seem to sit high though, I can understand the front being higher from the 6 cyl springs but the rear stumps me
