Calling Lift Guru's Look Over My Setup Before i Buy

OK lift gurus i am about to buy the Rock krawler 3.5 flex for my 07 jku with stock 4:10 gears. For rims im looking towards the xd addicts 17x9, wrapping them in Goodyear MTR's either 35's or 37's.

My question?

Will the 37's rub badly with stock fender flares? If so does anyone have some pics of trimmed Sahara flares?

Any opinions welcome just making sure I've crossed all my T's and dotted my i's, before i pull the trigger on this package Monday.

Thanks all,
Chris

Thinking of new drive shafts? Will need them eventually with that kit. RK is well known for giving more lift than advertised. Also I would sway in some new u joints and c gussets to help protect against the weight of that size tire. Rear tire carrier will also be needed as the stock will snap like a branch with that much weight over some bumps.

Thanks for the reply, I have budgeted for new drive shafts from adams, and will most likely keep the spare in the cargo area until I get a new tire carrier.

Watchthis!, those rims have a 4.5 backspacing.

Will inform you that my 35" Toyo's rubbed on my stock fenders with the 3.5 XFactor lift when max flex was achieved. I solved this with Gen Rights but if those are out of your budget, then trimming should suffice.
