    Do you know if these are factory wheels....7.5" wide? They look great. Wondering if stock sport s rims (same 7.5" width) will hold a 35 with the mopar lift and still be funtional when articulating. Different backspacing/offset?

    So does it come from the factory with the 2" lift or do the tech's at the dealer install it?

    So if you get a lift kit, you have to also get a leveling kit? Why doesn't the lift kit have a leveling kit incorporated?

    It looks like this MOPAR lift lifts the truck all around 2" instead of 2" in the front + whatever in the rear to make it level. This keeps the sink bug look. I personally prefer my truck to sit level. Usually on most pickups this is done with X size lift in front and Y (smaller) size block under the rear leaf springs. But with the JT using rear coils I'm not sure if you would then need a coil spring spacer to add to the front to level it out. Its seems like that, and would result in more like a 3" lift when done.

    Do we know for sure whether or not there's rub with the Mopar lift, 37s, and disconnected sway bar?

    The JL could almost handle it. I imagine the JT would have a little more space ... at least in the rear wheel wells.

    Ok, I found that they are black rhino wheels. What size tires?

    Can anyone tell me what backspacing I’ll need with the Mopar lift and 37’s to make sure there is no rub?

    Finally, will I also need new trackbars to put everything back to factory specs?

    Please
