  2. What size tires for Moab 16x8s?

    Morning, My LJ came with the 15 inch wheels. Been looking to get new rims and tires as these are worn and in rough shape. Found a set of 16x8 Moabs from a 04 TJ ( I think). Previous owner already put on a 3" lift. How big of a tire can I run with stock gearing, etc without causing any issues,...

  5. Rear spring modification

    So, after a year with my 3.5" metalcloak progressive lift on my LJ, i realized the the rear coil were not up to the task with the load I carry around and during adventure travel.

  6. lift recommendations....

    I am a new owner of an 05 LJ RUBI. It is currently bone stock. Looking to install a 32" tire and a 2 to 3" lift. Any recommendations? I prefer that the tire still fills up half of the wheel well area. I like the following look. Any suggestions on what size lift it is? Thanks guys!

  8. Ground clearance on an LJ

    So I have finally acquired an LJ... I'm much more familiar with leaf-sprung jeeps so I'm trying to wade through all the opinions and "true facts" out there in the forums. This jeep has 285/75/16's on it and they don't seem to particularly rub on any of my usual roads/trails. I read that a 33" tire...

  11. Daystar 1" body lift install

    Finally got around to putting on the 1" body lift to "complete" the overall lift of my LJ to fit 315/75 Duratracs. Didn't take many pics of the process, it's not very complicated. One thing that had me worried, the instructions mentioned using both a 5/8 and 3/4" sockets to loosen/remove the...

  12. Removal of front skid?

    My lift kit says to remove the front trans.skid for driveshaft clearance. Is this necessary on the LJ? Hate to leave the trans.pan exposed. I don't think mine looks like another one I saw onetime, are the Rubicons different? What are my options?

  13. Engine lift?

    I'm planning on a 3" coil and 1" body mount lift. Do I need the 1" motor mount lift that I hear about? Are they just blocks or a new mount? I have to move the radiator anyway because I will be taking out the 2" body lift spacers that are already on it and associated radiator relocation hardware....

  14. Black Diamond 3" Suspension install

    Ok, let's get this on.... Here's what I started with, our '05 LJ Rubicon. The only things I've done to it to this point are to swap on a Skid Row Nightcrawler bumper center section to mount the Ramsey winch that came off our old XJ before we sold it, added a Cobra CB and I just recently...
