check it out!!! awesome

what kind of lift and setup are yall running? my brother just got back from Iraq and he got himself an 06 rubi. we are thinking about a 4-4.5 inch lift and some 33 mt/r's... and the reason i said "we" is because he said if i do all the sh*t work... hell give me the moab wheels and the 31s that the rubi came with. i need you guys opinions on this cause i am an xj guy... this is new to me.

Try posting in the TJ forum. The 06 is a TJ the JK is the new for 2007 Jeep.

I'm stock, but I think that is more lift than you need. I think 3.5" is plenty for running 33's. I know some guys run a 2" BB with a 1" BL and run 33's. I also believe they say not to go over 3.5" without going to a long arm kit. Like I said post in the TJ section or maybe more appropriately, in the lift and tires section and you'll get the answers you need. Sounds like a good way to get moabs though.

First off, welcome home to your brother... he certainly deserves that Rubi!

Now, your brother's 06 is actually a TJ... the JKs are 07's. Try this forum and I'm sure you'll find what you need!

EDIT: Looks like Fargo beat me to it... so, yeah-- what he said!

4" of lift should be plenty for 33s. You dont really need to go over that.

my friend has 2" spring and a 1" BL and clears 33's alright. i think 4" would be better though, but it costs more $$$ and involves a little more work.

I thought the new JK had 5 on 5.5 bolt pattern? If so they won't work on your XJ.

EDIT::nevermind i reread the starting post, he's talking 06, wrong forum.
