Hello all,
I’m new to this forum and I heard that this is an awesome place to get advice on Jeep mod’s. I’m new to the jeep experience and extremely excited to start modifying my jeep. I recently bought the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL and overall happy with it. But I know that jeep is easily customizable so I want to put my personal touches on it.
I have a list of things that I want to do and pretty much categorized and prioritized as such. First, I’m starting with the Lift. I’m coming from a Hummer H2, and I loved the height and overall ruggedness of my hummer, but was challenged with garage parking, gas, and such; and it was time for a change. So I got the 2018 Jeep JL. Jeeps have the same square body style and ruggedness, but a huge height difference.
I’m more of a street driver and not much of an off-road rider, but would love to do it one day. I’m looking for opinions on lifts and/or spacers. I have been looking closer at the Mopar 2” Lift Kit w/ Fox Shocks by both Quadratec and Extreme Terrain and don’t know much about spacer. Which one is best recommended? Also, I have been looking at upgrading the wheels to either 33” or 35”, but I don’t want to take away from the classy style of my jeep. If I choose the lift kit instead of the space, which size tires look better 33" or 35"?

Any recommendations are greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Which trim/spec Wrangler do you have? If you got a Rubicon then you can fit 35' tires on the stock suspension no problem. I for one wouldn't cheap out on spacers and your safe with any of the brands you've mentioned. Comes down to your budget. You can also look into Metal Cloaks, Icon and Evo kits.

Back when I had an FJ Cruiser and was shopping for a JK along with accessories/mods to go with it, prior to the JL's release, I was really into 33's and this is a great example of what appealed to me:

If you don't even plan on taking your JL off road, not sure if there is much sense in modifying the suspension/body height. A higher riding vehicle, with larger and heavier tires are both going to negatively impact your fuel economy. As said above, 33's fit on the Rubi stock.

You'd be surprised by how many do it just for looks which is completely fine, I feel that it completes the Wrangler in a way Jeep should with a special edition JL.
