Okay im sure this question has been asked before, but here it goes, I have a stock 06 sport and im looking for a lift, i think im set on the RC 2.5 inch lift, and i wanna run 32s maybe 33's. If i get the 2.5 inch lift will i need to do a mml, sye, or anything other than the lift itself? This is my DD and im only looking to do some mild offroading every other month or so.
2012 Jk Sport S 6 speed
4.56s Detroit Trutrac rear
37x12.50 Nitto Trail Grapplers
3inch BDS w/ bilstein 5100s
32s would fit perfectly. i got the lift installed about 2 weeks ago and mine sits pretty level even with the 70 extra pounds of winch in the front. if you wanted 33s go with that and a 1 inch body lift or so. you wont have to do any extra mods.
rc even sells a package with the bl. heres the link if you want
every jeep is different. Dont believe the "you definitly wont need anything besides the lift". I installed the RC 2.5 and guess what? I got vibrations, the solution to which would be a MML. Now is this common? no. Is it possible? yes.
Edit: I ran the 2.5 with 32x11.5 and it was perfect.
That package won't work for me I got an 06 6speed, but thanks anyway! Ill just buy it seperately and do you think the 2.5lift with a 1 inch bodylift will rub with 33's if I disco my swaybar?
Maybe. A 2.5" lift will give you plenty of up travel with 32s, and adding the 1" BL will do the same for 33s. That being said, you will almost certainly need to lengthen your bumpstops F/R to prevent your tire hitting the fender or shocks fully collapsing before the stops hit the frame. Sway bar hooked up, it won't be a problem for normal driving, but disco'd and off road you definitely want your bumpstops set up right.
Also, as long as you have a <10.5" wide tire (~265mm), you shouldn't rub on the control arms with stock wheel backspacing, or at least not more than a spacer or two on your steering stops will correct.

it works, but wouldnt say you get plenty of uptravel and since you have to lengthen the bump stops so much it takes away your uptravel even more. make sure they send you the right shocks with the kit for the rear. they have alot of issues getting the right rear shocks with that kit
why would you need wheel spacers? what kinda backspacing do your wheels have? about the 3/4" spacer everyones jeep is diferent so you might need it or not. my lift i got the 2.5" rc 1" BL, 3/4" fr spacer, currie anti rock, f/r adj track bars. on the rear i have the factory bump stops with the factory sway bar links and i dont have any rubbing issues
