    Tire ? Not sure what i need.

    Bought a 2016 wrangler unlimited sport from a dealership and they have installed 35s on stock rims, with what i think is a 2in body lift. I want them to do it right so what do i need to have them do. The last pic is the spacer block. Thanks all

    I can't really make out that last picture.

    Where is it rubbing - on the fender when offroad, or on the frame when you make a tight turn?

    I don't think there is a body lift on that. The space between frame and fender in the wheel well looks normal. Plus no space above front bumper.

    Whats the issue(s) that need to be done right?

    Welcome to Jeepz and congrats on the new Jeep. Yeah, I don't think it's a body lift either. Likely spacers placed above the springs. If that's the case and you don't like that, then you can replace the springs and shocks with ones that equal a 2" lift to get the same look. It would cost a lot more money but I'd leave it like it is. It looks good.

    Well the majority of the rub was cured by putting wheels on with the proper backspace, courtesy of OUTLAW OFFROAD, High Point, N.C. they hooked me up with some Fuel - Podium. and a great deal i thought. The rest of the rub i can take care of by trimming a bit of plastic.. And you are right it does have the spacer on top of the spring, i think i will go with a Rubicon 2 1/2 lift or a Rock Krawler 3 in, undecided so far.Tire ?

    It's hard to beat a Rubicon Long Arm suspension. They are a little pricey, but the ride and geometry are great, and amazing off road.

    With a RK 3.5" lift you will net closer to 4.5 or 4.25" lift height. Right now you have no weight and they rate their springs for a fully loaded trail rig (armor, winch, HD f/r bumpers, rails, gear etc). At 3.5" you will need to do a DL flip. Yeti has a nice one and No Drill here. Add to cart for best pricing. Also one with the Griffin XD Attenuator here. If you need pricing on any suspension changes, let me know.

    Here is a great package deal to run 35s.

    Namaste,

    Allen

    So how are they no drill? The holes in the knuckle are tapered. So is there some tapered spacer to keep the movement at a minimum?
