Scrap the steering stabilizer. Your Jeep is brand new so the OEM steering stabilizer is up to the task. Also scrap the Dirtlogic shocks. Who are you getting your info from?

Personally I wouldn't put 20's on either but it is your Jeep. Suggestions: Fox shocks, OEM stabilizer, 15 or 16" wheels with 33's, Rock Krawler 2.5" Max Travel.

If you want it to ride nicely, skip the 20's and stay at 18's max (prefer 17's), the more sidewall, the better the ride.

and do not go with a 12" WIDE RIM (especially on a 33" tire); unnecessary, and looks lame

I love my 2" BDS coil lift, but if you want a soft ride, go with the stock coils and coil spring spacers (budget boost)

There is a Street Jeep section in the General Technical Discussion forum. You should be able to find some help there.

A Prius might ride nice.


Most of us buy a wrangler for off road capabilities. Buying a solid axle rig, lifting it, running 20" wheels and looking for the nicest street ride is sort of a foreign idea for most of us.

What brianjw said.

Honestly, to get the best street ride:
15" or 16" wheels (more sidewall remaining on the tire, the better....more cushion), Rancho 9000 adjustable shocks (very soft if you want them to be), 33"/35" tires, can do 37's with flat fenders & 2.5" lift), stock steering stabilizer (save some money), and a 2.5" COIL lift kit (skip the budget boost ones).

The 20" wheels may look cool on for the street scene, but you will HATE the ride. Too little tire sidewall.
Rule of thumb: Wheel size should be approximately half of the tire diameter. i.e. 35" tire...run 17" wheels, etc.
I run 37's on 17" wheels, and tire pressure about 27psi. Good enough for the highway, soft enough for off-road.

Keep is stock wheels and shocks (no lift) for a nice ride....the engineers knew what they were doing.

Well that's debatable when you start looking at the improperly sized, non shouldered bolts, pushed through square holes in the flimsy suspension mounts. Lol

But yeah, anyway, stock will ride best. You could use simple spacers, but the axles will be offset. Problem with the bigger wheels, you're now stressing weak factory suspension components and steering components (ball joints etc) by using less backspacing. The stock parts don't hold up that way to bigger and heavier wheels and tires. And the ride is going to suffer on 20" wheels. May be fine for a while, but in a couple months or maybe years, you'll be looking for solutions to sloppy handling, death wobble etc.

I would keep lift height to a minimum. Run 285s or something on aev wheels that aren't going to push the tires out as far. Just an idea. Something with IFS is better suited to what you want, modifying the wrangler becomes quite expensive to maintain good handling qualities with bigger tires and stuff.

Coil Spacers plays important role in vehicles engine and their parts.
