I have been watching your Ebay posting for the trim rings and was looking at buying a set... However the more I look at them the more I see thay take away from the look of the wheel plus I'm not sure i want to be taking the bolts on ad off. I don't want them to get stripped.

So if I disconnect with these 32's and no BL I'm going to rub right? What is the smallest body lift I can get and not rub? I'm just VERY happy with the overall look right now.

I just installed the 2.5 kit with steering stabilizer. I couldn't add the 1" coil spacers because the guy who put it on said I'd need control arms and a trackbar relocation bracket. I'll take pics tomorrow if it's not raining.

So now that I can't use these spacers, I think I'm going to add a 1.5" body lift if I can find one that size. If not then it's going to be a 2". I need the tires now though, if I throw the 33s on there now will I have to get a realignment after the body lift? I wouldn't think so but it can't hurt to ask.

Looks great! I might throw my sticker under the hood as well.




Question for you guys on the post lift steering. I did not do the Steering Stab. After my lift the steering seems a little "floaty" if that makes sense to anyone. I do think I need a slight alignment cause it was a little off to begin with. Should I go ahead and try a new stab? Any other suggestions?

your guy is wrong.

rc sells a 1.25" bl which really is all you need for 33's.

Do you have spacers on your wheels do the 285 rub when turning.

I ordered the front and rear adjustable track bars from RC and am wondering if they will work correctly. I bought the bars because I didn't want to install the bracket, and want to do this right. I additionally purchased the RC BPE's and RC wheel spacers (cheaper than Spider Trax). I am planning on running 285/75/16's on my stock moabs. I kinda want to see if I can avoid having to install the BL or MML. I use my TJ as a DD.
