its states that the kit recommends 8-9 inch rims with no less than 3.5 inch backspacing.


my question is, with 15X8 rims with 3.75 backspacing do you think they would work? i have a set of 33X12.50 on the cherokee that i would switch out with the tires on the wrangler.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

no pics yet, the fenders sit at the rocker panel and cowl line. i think it is about 3-4 inches higher in the front. not sure about the back. the rear flares sit about 1/2" below the top of the tub i think. i have not installed any flares on the kit because its not painted.

here is one of the best comparison i could find.

the red one has a 4.5 RE lift and 35's. The yellow one has a 4 inch lift and 33's.
