Now I can begin to change it.
I'm due for a new set of rubber this year. I was thinking that I might make some changes, along with the new set of tires. Like lifting, changing wheels to 15", changing the look from chrome colored wheels to black, etc.
These changes are mostly for looks. I have no real need for anything higher than what it is now. I'm just making change to have a nicer looking Jeep.
1) What is the largest set of tires I can put on a 2008 Jeep Rubicon (4 door), without a having to lift the jeep?
2) If I lift the Rubicon, how high can it be lifted without having to make ANY other changes (i.e. longer drive shaft, longer hoses, etc), and still use it as originally designed? I don't want things to rub or break, because I forgot something.
3) If it is lifted (as max in question 2), what is the largest set of tires I can put on my 2008 Rubicon 4 door? (not quite the same question as 1)
4) Is there any problem with going to 15" beadlock type wheel, that I should be aware of? I'm probably not going to use it for anything but mile mountain roads and such. I'm not a rock crawler type.
But I think larger tires and beadlocks add a nice visual appeal, even for someone who doesn't go out to get stuck.
5) If it was your Jeep, would you leave the stock wheels, or go with a 15" beadlocks or something else?
6) If you had a stock 2008 4 door Rubicon, and were going to make changes, in the wheel/tire area, what would your change be? (include any other changes, required as a result of your suggestion).
Thanks, I still love this Jeep
