I have the Icon 12.5" lift kit with OneUpOffroad traction block system in the rear. I used to have a rubicon express 6.5" lift with 37" tires. I just went up to 38" tires which are really small for the 12.5" lift. I regeared to 4.30 gears for the 37 " tires and I only went with the 38" tires to give me time to decide once these tires run out if I will go higher one last time, or if I will stay at the 12.5" and then just run 40`s. Then I will regear for the last time. I drive my truck every day and I also use it to do alot of work also.
