    If I recall a 37" x20
    Is was impressed by the overall look, but still prefer a 17" at around this tire size.

    Thanks Matt! Maybe you or Eddie can answer one more question. The Crawler on a non Rubi is 4.5 inches what, if at all, does it settle down to? I believe this kit offers a tremendous value but, with the wife standing tall at 5' 1", might be a turn off to her! I could always do the 3.5 kit with the adj track bars but I would be left without the adj control arms and the ability to run 37 in the future. Happy 4th of July, gentlemen! Everyone stay safe!

    Why do you think you need adjustable control arms to run 37s?

    Lots of JLs running them without.

    I would run arms or the geo bracket honestly.
    And check this out:
    3.5 on the green
    2" on the silver
    both on 37" tire
    These are Rubicons though..

    Correct on not needing adj control arms, I really like the "fine tuning" aspect as well as doing it right the first time. This Jeep will be a work in progress, but I'm starting with the lift and tires, Axel's second and brakes third. This is going to be a long term investment, I tend to keep vehicles for a LONG time😁. My 1997 tacoma, lifted and 35 Duratracs I finally sold last year with 110000 miles, only thing I ever changed was starter, thermostat, brakes, battery and tires...and I beat the hell out of it from Mexico Baja, Arizona rock crawling and deep snow covered trials in Northern Illinois.

    Matt, 3.5 and 37’s on a sport fit well at full stuff? Can’t decide between your 3.5 or seeing if I can squeeze the 37’s under a 2.5

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
