Hey guys,

Im new to the forum and wanted yalls expert opinion. I will be putting a 2 1/2" lift on my JT sport w/o max tow. I really like those XD FMJ 137 with the red ring. I want the tires to stick out just a hair (1" or so). Will the 9" wide wheel work on 17" diameter?. I didn't want spacers if I can avoid it. Thank you very much for the info.

You'll love the wheels, I love mine. The back spacing is just aggressive enough without looking like a bro dozer.
You will need to get smaller diameter lug nuts though. I am not sure what the size was, my tire shop got them from their distributer for 2 bucks a piece.

Thanks for the reply! I have the same wheel/tire setup and have been on the fence about the Mopar 2in. This confirms it’ll look awesome. Cheers!
I ended up adding the 3/4" teraflex spacer too. It still has a slight rake but looks so much better in my opinion. I will try to get a picture today. I did not notice any change in how it drives since adding the spacer

Great to know! I was considering that as well to offset future winch weight.

Do you guys just purchase this kit and that’s it? Do you need to add anything else to it? I saw a YouTube video on a guy saying you need to add different arms, spacers etc to the 2 inch lift kit from mopar

This looks great. Did you add any other parts when you originally lifted it, or just the Mopar kit and wheels/tires? Were you happy with the ride? I’m curious if other relocation brackets, etc. are needed. Did you have to do any trimming? Thanks!

The only other item I purchased was the Mopar / Fox steering stabilizer. Not required. I did purchase a Daytech 3/4” spacer kit but did not use it. Very happy how it sit’s & rides with the kit as is.

Nice. No rubbing or vibrations?
