Skyjacker 2'' BB questions
Just picked up a Skyjacker 2'' BB with Hydros for a great price. Going to be installing it one my newly purchased 06 LJ Rubi. The recommended tire size is a 32 but I've seen a few different members running 33s and 285s with similar lifts. I would like 285s so my question is what do I need to do to make this happen?
Do you have stock wheels? If so you will have rubbing issues during cornering. I had 32x11.5x15 tires on a 2" budget lift and had slight rubbing on the swaybars when the steering wheel was cut all the way one way or the other but had no problems with the tires getting into the fenders on or off road (note I did not have swaybar disconnects at the time). If you don't have swaybar disconnects you might be able to get away without rubbing/clearance issues in the fenders but I'm not 100% sure. You can clear the swaybar rubbing issues by either installing wheel spacers or aftermarket wheels with more offset. You could also run the 1.25" body lift as mentioned before if you're afraid of destroying your fenders, plus the BL gives you room for a tummy tuck down the line.
