    Other alternative is get some Rubicon flares. They are $550 for whole set and include the new lights. LED cost same as halogen. I have a 2.5" lift and 37s on my Sport with the Rubi flares. 20190421_164229.jpeg

    Any rub when flexing with swaybar disconnected?

    Nope. Wheeled it all week in Moab. I set the bumps so it doesn't rub. Used teraflex modular bump stop system. Used 2.5" front and rear.

    Are the Rubicon fenders taller (allow more clearance) in the back as well ?

    Looks like the move. All the models should just come with these in my opinion

    "Fencing"...

    Plus they look silly without 33s. Even 32s they look out of proportion

    What gear ratio did you go with? Did you stick with sport axles or did you add Rubicon axles? Thanks in advance.

    It's still all stock as far as gears go. It's a 6 speed and definitely slightly under-powered . That said, I've driven it over 7K miles without any issues.

    I'm planning on doing something this summer, not sure on if I'm going to keep the sport axles or not.

    My sport stock, 8th gear would not come in till 60 mph. What gear are you in at 60mph with the manual?
