Got it home this evening. Idajack I’m looking at about a 2.5” lift with some 33’s. That will be about perfect for my use. I think a black wheel will look good on it too.
I’m gonna research the max tire size for the back. I know bigger tires can stress the back gate. I may have to invest in another rear bumper or see if this one can be modded. The previous owner did put Warn bumpers on it.
I’m running no real lift but did pick up a brand new set of springs and shocks off a 2107 rubicon unlimited which essentially gave me 1.5 inches or so over the stock stuff and 31” tires. I have plenty of clearance for what I’ve done on forest roads and mild wheeling.
Depends on what bumper you’ve got but you may be able to add a swing away tire carrier to what is already there.
My speedometer is off by a mile or two according to GPS but I know that and adjust accordingly. You can get a different gear for the trans if it’s all that important to you.
I also pulled the stock “running boards” and like the look a lot more. The rocker guards look sharp but you may want to check them out for any rust underneath since that also seems to be a common issue.
But from what I see it looks like a fun rig to get out in the woods and will make a good daily driver as well.
Enjoy the hell out of it.
