Around 33 inches. On the Jeep they measure closer to 32 inches.

I pulled the trigger on the Lift Kit + Rear Track bar bracket in the last 15 minutes on sale. Gave me the JF Discount on the Bracket so it was only... $120 for everything including shiping.

Careful, looks like only the 5x4.5" spacers are on sale, which won't fit the JK. I can't tell from your profile which model you have, but the Sahara does not need wheel spacers for the RC 2.5" BB because of the 18" wheels (the extra inch gives enough room so that the sway bar links don't rub). I haven't had a problem and have been running them for a couple months.

However, I'm also running the Series II kit so the included sway bar links might make a difference. Good luck with the holiday deal shopping.

I was told by R/C today that I would not have a problem with the rear sway bar links rubbing w/ OEM Rubicon wheels and stock 255 MT tires. However a wider tire on these wheels will most likely rub and need the spacers. I picked up the trackbar bracket because I didn't like the thought of the rear being .25" off center... especially for towing.

NAPAJEEP - The spacers that went on sale 2 hours ago don't fit the JK. So You didn't pay too much. If it was the JK kit listed on sale, I'm sure they would work with you, R/C is a good company.

I also got the Lift Kit + Rear Track bar brackets, before the sale ended for just under $120 shipped.
Can't beat that.

Yea. I checked out the spacers they have on sale now. I ordered the correct ones for 2011 model. Mine were not on sale. Whats the deal with the rear track bar bracket? Do i need this also? Didnt order one. I am going to run 285/70r17's on factory wheels with the wheel spacers and the lift that rc had on sale this morning.

The Trackbar Bracket corrects the axle offset caused when you lift the jeep. The trackbar will cause the axles to shift to one side about .25 inches. This can cause clearance issues on some rear tires... You ordered the wheel spacers so you are good to go. The bracket doesn't hurt to have but its not mandatory.

Some people don't care but I figured for < $30 I'd add it in. On the the front end you can install an adjustable trackbar to correct the offset but its not really required until you hit 3" or so. On my lifted WJ you couldn't tell unless you held a square and measuring tape to it.

I got the 2.5 lift with about 15 minutes to spare also. Then I found a set of Rubi springs on ebay. The same guy that I always see with sets of front and rear together had several for sale. I paid a few extra bucks and got the only ones he had that were 18 front and 59 rears, the others were 17 and 58. My stock are 14 front and 56 rear so it should be quite an improvement.
