35s and 2.5 inch lift

Upload pictures of yours! Also do any of you experience rubbing? I have been thinking about getting spacers if that's the problem

I have a 13 you can see below in my link. On early 13's the pinch seem needs to be trimmed to avoid hitting it but other than I have had no issues.

you won't have any issues with rubbing 35" tires on a 2.5" coil lift. if you're running stock wheels, you'll need wheel spacers for the wider tire but you are not going to rub the fenders.

Not the best poser pic, but it's got better lighting to see the spacing between the wheels and fenders than the others I have on my iPad.

so you're saying that only happens when you're out wheeling?

Yep. I had the same thing. Rubicon Express 2.5" spring lift with the included bump stops. Tires are 315/70R17 Duratracs on 17x9 wheels with 4.5" back spacing. Off road with the swaybar disconnected I would get slight rubbing on the inner fender liner at full tire stuff. Otherwise I would get no rubbing whatsoever.



Then I knocked a fender loose when I bumped a tree. So I put Poison Spyder Crusher flares on all 4 corners. Just got back from Moab where I really tested the flexing. No rubbing whatsoever. I'm even thinking about taking out the bump stop extensions now that I have more room to flex.

Just curious those with 315/70/17 Duratracs what are you setting your Procal or similar device to for tire size? It is my understanding they are really around 33" tall, my BFG 315/70/17s are 33.25" tall confirmed with the Procal and GPS.
