Get some 265/70R17's with either 1.25 or 1.5 inch wheel spacers. Or some 17x8 wheels with the proper back space/offset

Looks really good!

Has anyone else on the forum used the TECH CUSTOM lift?

Please keep us posted on how it rides. Seems like the front lifted quite a bit too.

It rides very well, I have not had any problems so far. I'm getting the 1.5 spacers put on today I just cant decide on the wheels yet. the 265/70R17 are probably the biggest tires I can fit on my XK with the 1.5' spacers. I don't know what to do.

If your installing wheel spacers then you don't need new wheels. You do one or the other. You would just need bigger tires now. Pick out what tire you like the most and get it in a 265/70R17

Is it hitting the inner black fender well? If so do the pinch weld mod and reshape the plastic with a heat gun

Looks nice, and the jeep appears level. What is the distance measured from the ground to the inside of the Front and Back wheel wells? I installed a differant lift and mine measures 36" up front and 34-1/2" in the rear. Mine is not sitting nice like yours.

I called Rustys and got some helpfull information. I was told to measure from the center of tyhe wheel to the wheel well opening. Mine is 22-1/2 in the Front and 20-1/2 in the rear. Rustys is investagating and will provide what ever is needed to resolve. I have always liked working with them. Front springs were ROR 570 and rears ROR 575.
