Well the driver didn’t make it in by 9:15 pm so oh well must have been stuck in Chicago traffic. Maybe tomorrow. At this point what does it matter.

Here are some pictures of the Rubi they have on 2” Mopar lift with 35” General Grabbers. Wheels I believe are 17x8.5 and stick out 2” from fenders.

@SKT and @pilotpat those JTs look AWESOME!!!

I don't post much, but have a white JTLE coming soon too. It's in the shipping status. :rock: I plan on picking it up with the 2" lift and keeping the LE wheels with RC 1.5" red spacers and 37" Nitto Ridge Grapplers on it. Would any of you comment on the cons of wheel spacers? I've had a mechanic tell me that the 37/12.5r17 wheels will ride on the very edge of the wheel hub of the 17x7.5 and its not a good idea to go with spacers to compensate.

HELP!!

Not sure what he is trying to say ......but for cons. A) some people get a wobble like a tire out of balance at certain speeds. kind of strange as most are hubcentric. b) Require checking the lug nuts and the spacer nuts quite often. C) most spacers you cannot torque the lug nuts past about 80ft lbs, wheras JL/JT normally require 130ft lb on the lugs.
