Anxiously awaiting my new setup...

I got my 2" RC lift installed on Saturday and my 17" matte black v-tecs finally came in yesterday, so I dropped the Jeep off this morning to get them mounted on my 255/70/17 Grabber AT2s. I originally ordered the +25 offset, but after finding out they were backordered for at least 60 days, I switched to the 0 offset. I anticipated some minor rubbing and the garage just called me and confirmed that I do indeed have a rub, but hopefully the pinch weld mod will take care of that. I can't wait to see what it looks like...

Right there with you!

I can't wait to see pics of your set up on the V-Tech's....I almost ordered the Raptor in Matte Black last week and was advised against the 17x9 wheel.

My RC 2" lift goes on tomorrow and I ordered the XD SPY's with the same Grabber AT2 tires 255/70/17....they should be on Friday.

Be sure to get some pics up!

I'll definitely post some pictures up. The Off-Roads look very similar to the Raptors. What offset are the XD Spys you're going with? The offroads I got are 8.5" wide and 0 offset.

The XD Spys I got are 8.0" wide and 18 offset. I am supposed to have no rubbing with this combo.

Sounds like a perfect setup. I think I would have been all set with +25 offsets, but I'm too impatient, haha. Oh well, it is what it is. I'll figure something out. I'm just glad I didn't try and go with 265/70's.

I stopped by on my lunch break and snapped a couple quick photos with my cell phone. I'll take better pictures later. I'll include a couple of the jeep after they installed the lift and before they installed the new tires/wheels.

now all I have left to do is swap out the chrome grille for a black one, spray tint the front signals and get new headlight bulbs. Then I will tackle the interior and engine. Finally making some progress..

How did you get your taillights like that? I want to tint mine as well but I only want to go about half as dark as you did.
