I'm using both my factory wheels and another set of factory wheels from an '09 JK Rubicon. They have virtually idential offset and both work fine with the 1.5" Spidertrax spacers.

Stock wheels -



Factory Rubi wheels (and tires) -

a49er - I've noticed that before too. I think the Rubi wheels look nicer than the originals.

Canadian - I've been running the lift for about a year now and I still have not added the module. I disable the ESP every time I drive it. If I don't, it activates constantly on slow, sharp corners. I may add it soon, but it's not 100% necessary to add the module if you're okay dealing with the side effects of the lift.

Edit - just read your next post. You can find the lift for less than $2,000 and my Jeep dealership charged me $850-ish for the install. Shop around a little. If you get the 4", you won't regret it.

ya i realize that there may be cheaper prices out there...problem i have is that the 4x4 scene isn't as big up here.so there are few shops that deal with lifts..especialy the super lift...most shops around here deal with BDS, Trail Master, Revtek

I found a place online that is currently selling the superlift for $1600 and always has either 10-15% off that price making it around $1300-$1400 dollars. Drive down here and ill install it for you for free (just bring a case of Molson XXX)
