opinions on my propsed setup (2013 JKUR)
** I see I got a bunch of views on this post, but no responses. I do have a few newbie lift questions, which are now bolded and underlined below. I should have been clearer in my title.
It has been a while since I've been on JF. I got laid-off earlier this year, so I forceed myself to put all jeep plans on hold until I got a job. Plus, I didn't want to read about others' mods, when I was handcuffed.
Long story short, I start next week.
My JKUR is bone stock right now. I am not a rock crawler yet, and I intend to stick to light trails for a while. I drive my jeep a good bit on the road, so my primary concern is not messing up the road manners. I have a list as long as my arm for what I want to do, but here is the phase 1 proposal - along with my questions.
- TF leveling kit. Are there any concerns with adding this kit to a rubi? I see it comes with sway bar links, and I want to make sure this will not cause any issues with the electronic sway bar disconnect.
- Kelly Safari TSR (285/70/17)
- quadratec moab style alloys (17x8.5, 4.7" backspacing (can I fit this rim and tire combo on my stock spare carrier without modification? Will the upper brakelight still be visible?
- I'm sure this question would be an easy search, but I might as well ask since I've already eaten up forum space. Do I have to go to the dealer to recalibrate the speedo? What equipment do they use to do this? I can check with my indy mechanic - who will install the kit - to see if he has it.
I'm also interested if anyone is running a close set-up as to how the road manners are.
Thanks for the help. I've been chomping at the bit to do this for a year.
