Got Bored This Weekend & Installed 06 Rubicon Flares on my 92 YJ...

This weekend I got bored while Im waiting on my gauges and a couple of other things to come in and decided to go for a upgrade. Installed a set of 06 Rubicon Flares to take place of the stock ones.

I havent cut out the fender yet, Ill do that sometime this week when I get a lil extra time.

Do you guys think my puny axles could handle 35's if they fit? I already know they are going to be under a lil stress with a stock V8 but just curious.

Before





After

Thanks for callin me out, hahaha. To elaborate, I have a vortec small block thats mostly stock that I just put in.

My jeep wont be goin off road to much or if at all and mostly used for mall crawlin and towin the jet ski. Im runnin on the stock axles until I upgrade but am curious to know if I can run 35's on here if I dont mash the gas.

most likly you have 4.10's in your axles...and being that they are only d30-d35's the highest you can go in tire size before breaking stuff w/ that v8 is 33's. and grandma foot it.

i would get as many of the parts around for the swap that you can, and then run the 35 until it explodes.
