I agree. Jku too long and need a bigger lift IMO to look good. 4 inch on a jku is bad a though

how about you all measure the height of you 35" on the jeep at road inflation pressure and at trail pressure. You may be surprised. It might explain why you can clear w/o a lift

Glad that someone posted this, as was thinking about this as well. Going to get the RK 2.5 lift, as I do want to run 35s, but getting lift kit, wheels, and tires all at the same time would be too much money.
So was planning to see if I can run 35s with just a levelling kit, maybe for a year (with minimal offroading), then get the lift done later...and based on comments and pics here, seems it would work

Hello! I have just done the no lift 35 set up with flat style fenders. was a little more work then i hoped, but everything seems to be ok! i really like the low and wide look of it, but will soon be adding a levelling kit to bring back the offroad capabilities.
had to stim the frame and remove the rock rails for cutting aswell. also trimmed splash guard, kept it for air flow purposes. still decent space from bumper but ill be cutting that soon to a stubby. all in good time freinds.
last pic was just for fun :P moms 2013 grand cherokee LE with my old 32 mudders lol

It will be easier. With a JK
You have the jeep I wanted to buy. Wife said four door but really I think you have the perfect jeep! The LJ was a great wrangler. Yours looks so good by the way.

Not sure what your trying to say here?
It's not the look I am trying to achieve but ability. For rule of thumb most feel that wheelbase to tire size should be 3:1, so the JKU wheelbase is 116"/3 = 38.6666667 so a 39" tire. To do that properly I feel you need a 6" lift. I am running 37" and it barely clears up front and the wheel well is to small in the rear to get a full stuff back there. To do bigger tires than what I have requires a lot more work and money. I will likely stick to 37"s but just go 6" lift to get more breakover clearance that I find is a problem for me and my jeep. This is why I wanted an LJ. Longer wheelbase than a TJ but not too long like a JKU. Plus it looks so good lifted with bigger tires.

I'm just saying a larger lift in a jku looks sweet, whether it is 4 or 6 inch.

Its always changing. I pulled the front springs and spacer and am running Metal Cloack 3.5 springs and C\A's up front an the JKU heavy spring rate rears. Also got the rest of my Cloak fenders

Oh agreed! I love mine. We get looks where ever we go from headjerkers. It is hilarious.

the latter is my JK on 35s, with no lift. I installed smittybilt flats, a stubby & trimmed the pinch seam. No rubbing for normal street driving, which is where it'll be staying, until the funds for the lift become available.

before


AFTER!


Fresh install today... 35x12.5x15 Goodyear MTR Kevlar + 15x8 Level 8 Trackers
Discount Tire Direct really hooked me up. Absolutely recommend them!

2008 Unlimited Rubicon

Smittybilt Flats
Rampage Stubby Front

Looks awesome. Same tire/wheel combo I'm going with on my two door. What lift are you planning on running?

Thank you, I plan on keeping it relatively modest. 2.5" Teraflex Coil Lift, Perhaps a small body lift as well.

Everything worked great.Trimmed the front splash guard under front bumper .Im going with a stubby bumper as soon as I figure out which one....
Had to trim the rock sliders in the back.....
absolutely no rubbing street wise...
Love the look and drives just like before.I can notice a slight difference in power .Not bad....in six gear on interstate...up hill....I don't have to downshift but it doesn't have the pep it did with the stockers.
These are bushwacker flats and fuel boost 16x8 and toyo 35x75x16 at2

its not required to trim the seams with the 2014s from what i read. as for NEEDING a lift, no one NEEDS one. people only want one for aesthetics and or if you plan on doing some hardcore offroading. for light to mild off roading you can easily throw some 17 inch wheels and the 315/70/17s on without problem.

This is true. I have a 3.5 MetalCloak lift with Nitto 37's and no pinch seam issues.

There are your answers. People who Have done it vs. people who have never tried but say its impossible.

Anyone one else with more input on this? I really love the look of 35's with no lift. I have an aftermarket bumper already and am looking to try this out.

We have too many people on this forum who CLAIM that the only way to do 35s is with a lift.... thats total BS. I just happened to look at a few past JP magazines their article private JK shows that 35s with no lift can definitely be done and it has no problem off roading..

Flat fenders, new front bumper and new rear tire carrier is all that is needed. People stop feeding others false info.
