    Lift kit and tire sizes for a jl sport.

    So I am a bit confused. I have a 2018 JL sport with stock fenders, not the high clearance rubi ones. I have heard from some people 37s can be ran with a 3.5-4in lift, but rancho's 3.5-4in kit says 35s on a sport, but I thought I would only need a 2 inch kit for 35s. Could anyone provide some clarification? Just give me a range of what kit equals what tire size? Thanks

    I have a base model sport with the 3.5" Rancho lift. I'm running 37's without any issues.

    I'm running 2.5" evo enforcer lift with 1.75" spidertrax wheel spacers. 35x12.5 trail grapplers on stock sport wheels.

    You can definitely run 35's with just 2" of lift. This is what the Dynatrac Endurosport 2" lift is made specifically to do - get a Sport or Sahara running on 35's and without any issues.

    Wow. Sweet looking rides everywhere. Will 3.45 gear ratio be a problem?

    Are you running wheel spacers on there?
