Minimal trimming of the inner plastic liner at the back of the rear fenders is needed, and the rock rail needs to have 1 1/2" cut off its back end. He is running the bump stop extensions that come with the suspension lift.

To center the axles did he have to get new drive shafts or was there enough play in the stock ones?

I am having rubbing issues with my 295/70R18 tires on stock rims. Tires measure around 34.5 so there shouldn't be any rubbing. I get rub on the front lower control arm when turned all the way right or left. Could this be fixed with wheel spacers?

Yes. You absolutely must run wheel spacers to run wider than stock tires on stock wheels with no rubbing.

You want Spidertrax spacers. You will have to remove all the stock lug retainer clips to run them without wobbles.

ok so here goes and bear with me! Im going 37's for my stock Rubi 6spd. My plan after reading this thread is......

1. 2.5 TF BB
2. 1 or 1.25 BL
3. Spidertrax 1.25 wheel spacers
4. Stubby front bumper end caps
5. Trim and sawzall all pinch weld seams including stock Rubi rock rails (2")
6. Trim and cut all stock flares to make them flatties until my GenRight budget shows up


Do JKU stock Rubi springs raise the lift height more than the stock 2dr Rubi springs?

I'm thinking pick up stock JKU Rubi springs if thats the case, seems like those are easy pickings in the classifieds...

Thanks for your input on this......I'm driving to the other side of the island tom am to pick up my new jeep and I cant wait!! Mahalo!!

The JKU Rubi springs are just stiffer. Because of this, the give a little lift.

I wouldn't do them except for the fronts only, and only after you add something heavy to the front like a steel bumper and winch.

I don't like a stiff ride.

Also, I'd do the BB with shocks instead of the shock extensions because the extensions won't give the same extension/articulation as newer, longer shocks.

I don't condone spending the absolute least amount of money possible to push the biggest tires possible...you'll just end up spending twice. Buy a decent set of coils, at the very least.

And don't forget to weld your front axle into a girdle and add a corset to the C's and put some sleeves on your shirt. Or something like that.
