Thoughts? Opinions?
Those will look and fit nicely. What lift do you have?

You'll get about 2" from that lift and the wheels and tires will fit without spacers

Yeah, it's supposed to be 2" in the rear and 3.5" up front. Honestly, as long as the tires don't rub, I don't need it any higher than that. It's the wifey's Jeep and I've got my JK on 41" Pitbulls if I want something tall!

Gonna do a NJ-AZ trip in August and I need to get this stuff done before we leave. Gonna hit some easy trails in AZ and Moab while I'm out that way.

Want to know what you think for a tire size? I am torn between a 285/70/17 (33) or 315/70/17 (35). I will be running 1.5" ST spacers until I can find some wheels I really like. I will be doing a decent amount of wheeling, but I mainly like going fast offroad. I don't live here the desert. I like to keep things lightweight so that is one draw back for the 35's. I am also concerned about wheel spacers and 35's. These are going on my CRD. Tires will be GY DuraTrac. Let me know.

I have 285/75/16's DuraTracs on my F250 and like the size/performance.

No way you're fitting 35s with that lift. That's what I have and I'll be running 33s soon

With 265/70/17 and 1.5" spacers its about the same clearance as stock. Saw a post of a guy with 285 saying he was grinding the UAC bolt, 315 has to be rubbing.

Would 265/65/17 bfg all terrains rub without spacers? I'll be doing the RC 2" lift.

I would measure but I am pretty sure you would. I just bought the spacers from Rough Country, pretty cheap and easy install.

Yeah understand. When I first started looking at lifting my jeep I didn't think I'd need spacers, but I definitely don't want rubbing and I'm hesitant about trimming the bolt.

I would leave the bolt alone. $120 for 4 spacers and its more than enough. Mine is getting 265/70/17 Nitto Terras. With the lift/spacers/tire size it is about the same spacing as stock.

Sounds good. Not sure what kind of tire I want yet. Still thinking. I know I'm getting the rough country lift and now the rough country spacers. Was thinking about some goodyear wrangler authority's or duratrac's. Any thoughts?
