Rubicon w/ 2" BB & 31s or 32s

I am interested in a 2"BB on my Rubicon but have not been able to find any pics, only of the 2" with a 1" BL. Does anyone have any pics of a Rubi with 2" BB and either the stock 31 MTRs or something larger?

Thanks.

FrozenTJ,

Thanks for the pic, this was exactly what I was looking for........do you experience any rubbing with this setup? (2" BB and 32s?) The jeep looks great.........I just wanted to make sure there would be enough clearance for the 32s and it looks like there is. If you have any other pics that you could email me it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again.

Dave

No problems with rub. You just need to make sure you have the right back spacing on the rims. I have like 4" on mine. I will see if I have any better pics when I get home tonight.

Here is my old TJ 32" tires and RE BB, no rubbing at all, look at all the clearance there is.

IF YOU DISCONNECT YOUR SWAYBAR THIS COULD BE YOU!!!!!!


but the flex is awesome



If you want to do a BB and run 32's disconnected just make sure to extend the front bumpstops, it will keep the tires out of your fenders. BTW, those pics are 32" BFG AT's with 3.75" backspacing. The second pic is my BB vs a friend's RE 3.5" SF I am a bit lower and we didn't get a good pic but they flexed pretty much equally.

Hey Jeepthing.....your running 6" pocket flares? Do the 32's stick out of the flares? We hav some hard *** State Troopers round here in CT and the often run into RI can be testing if a local cop is having a bad day...

I am currently running the 6" Bushwacker Pocket Flares. That pic above is a few months old from before I got them. They used to stick out a good bit. But now the tires don't stick out anymore they fit perfectly under the new 6" flares. They come right out to the edge of them. I never had any problems with cops and the tires sticking out, but every area is different. Here's a link to my thread with pics of the 6" flares. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/showt...er+flares+pics
