I am running a RK 2.5" MAx Travel lift with flat fenders and 37's on a JK 2-dr. Looks great.

I have always heard that on a JKU, you should go one tire size larger than a 2-door would, just looks more proportional.

Here are some pics of my 2-dr on 2.5" with flats and 37's.


Without flat fenders:

Man those rims look good. I almost got them but dident think they were that nice.. Now I wish I would have.

jkmax - Not exactly what you asked for but I will post it anyway.

My Jeep. 315/70/17 (34.4) with AEV 2.5 and M.O.R.E. 1" body lift.


1" body lift acutally made a huge difference. Most will tell you there is no real benefit to a body lift and there is not much.

But what I got from it:
Easier to clean as I have more room between frame and body.
Keeps my rock rail from being pushed into body seam (again)
No need to cut pinch seams in rear fender well.
technically- my air box and Evap canister are one more inch higher seeing how they are attached to body.
area around tail gate is not as tight now wit tire carrier installed where as before the tail gate barely cleared the tire carrier bolts. Was so tight I could not use washers on bolts because it would hit. Now there is lots of room.
Also with the way the body seam is there is no gap between the bumper and body.

Like I said way more info than you asked for and my Jeep does not really fit the 2.5 and flat fenders only category. But just wanted to put it out there.

No that was perfect. I actually really like the stance and tire size to lift

zenman, thanks! Those pics are old. Have a PSC rear bumper w/tire carrier, and stubby front bumper w/winch now.

HAFICON, thanks. I looked at other wheels, but kept coming back to these. Look like bulldozer wheels. The silver points do stick out about 1/2", though....rock magnets.

AEV Dualsport XT 2.5" w/ bushwackers and 35" KM2's. Perfect stance IMO, good look and funtion without dishing $$$$ for 37's and drivetrain upgrades. Even though drivetrain upgrades are ideal at 35's, its not as necessary with 35's.

Doors and top off



Doors on



And with my new (legal) tires and wheels
