I don't think it will take long for companies like Edge, Superchips, and Hypertech to come out with a power programmer for the JK. Those power programmers normally have a tire size compensation utility in them.

Any rubbing issues?

Did you have to adjust the steering bump stops to prevent tire rub? Or was everything okay? I obviuosly don't know, but do the Commander wheels have different back spacing than the stock Rubicon wheels? Thanks.

No I didn't have to adjust the steering bumps, the tires don't rub lock to lock. The 17x7.5 Commander wheels have exactly the same backspacing as the stock Rubicon wheels do.

Exactly, that's what my plan is.

That is a sweet looking rig, good job! Thanks for adding the pic with your daughter, it really gives you perspective on how big these JKs really are!

Someone saw mine sitting in a parking lot from up a little hill and they commented that it was a small "car". I had them walk down with me and stand next to it...they were impressed and didn't realize how hulky they are! I guess that's a compliment to the designers, they are so propotionally designed. Not like the Larg-ess of hummers, where they try too hard to make them look big with bumps and protrusions for that sake. ugh.

The red is beautiful too! Love that you are a two jeep familly!!

Keep up the good work fellow Arkansan!!

Thanks! As an FYI, my daughter is barely over 5 feet tall so you can get a better idea of how tall the Jeep is.

RedRockJk, can you help me out here. I'm going with a similar setup but with different wheels.

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f15/beadlock-vs-regular-wheels-386885/

I'm trying to figure out the backspacing and how much the tires will stick out from the fender flares. How wide are the Hulk wheels? I thought they were only 8" wide. Did the narrowness of the wheels cause issues with mounting the tires? I am looking at the BFGoodrich and they are recommending 8.5 to 10" wheel for that size.

BTW, my new coworker is a Jeeper. He has a 4 cylinder YJ. I showed him the pictures of your Rubicon and I had wipe the drool off of my laptop from him adoring it.
