Re: 1999 Bone Stock XJ Sport

Got my Rough Country front bumper installed last weekend which looks great but was a bit of a pain to install. Had to drill out a lot of the bolt holes but it's in and I like it.

Then jumped the gun and started looking at take off tires on Craigslist.

I found Rubicon take offs that are 32" tall with stock rims that I actually like. Haven't bought them yet but I'm leaning towards pulling the trigger.

Question is how high do I need to go to fit them?

Don't want to go higher than 4".

Any thoughts?

The sliders may go on this weekend.

3.5 in lift with a little trimming will fit 32s no problem.

FYI for those rubi wheels the only ones that bolt right up are the TJ ones. The newer ones you'll need an adapter as the bolt pattern is different. Not a big deal but something to know. Agreed with Trippled, trim the fenders at 3.5 you'll be fine. I ran 33's with the same lift height and no issues.

Re: 1999 Bone Stock XJ Sport

Thanks, I saw the Rubicon's were on a 5x5 pattern.

I'm looking into a spacer/5x4.5 adapter.

Could I go with a 4" lift and not trim fenders? Don't really want to carve up the body.

Nope, specially with those rims and spacers! I would rethink that.

Well you could but its going to rub. You could look into some flat fenders or flares if you wanted to get some more room and still have it look factoryish.

Re: 1999 Bone Stock XJ Sport

I have installed a couple sets of these on 4in of lift. They clear with 2in of bumpstop and minor trimming. If you run 3in of bump in the front and spring plate bumpstop I. The rear it should clear
