That's what it looks like to me as well

It is stock on both counts. They've just had some angle grinder surgery

Had the fenders stock for a while, but eventually those 33's busted the clips.

That actually looks amazing! hum... i might try that with my 08 sahara.. i was thinking about changing out my bumpers and fenders but i might have just found a more cost-effective way did you do it yourself?

Lol, I DIY everything...

The grill guard is chainmaille i knitted out of aluminum rings. Made a chainmaille seat cover, and am smack in the middle of thatching a cargo net out of paracord on a pneumatically lifting steel frame I made

Come to think of it, I suppose I oughtta create a few threads... Been kinda busy on mods for a few weeks

Anyone else think the wider tires get squirrely on the highway sometimes?


Side pic? Did you get a lift? If so, pics?

NICE!

I ended up with Nitto Trail Grapplers 285/65/18 on Fuel Hostage Wheels, no lift.

Any lift I do would be 1.5 to 2" max down the road and just a off-road (not too rough) weekend warrior.

Thanks.

I went with 325-60-18's on aftermarket 18 inch wheels. It is really wide and I didn't have to do any lift. I had to trim the plastic tab on the inside of the bumper by about 1/4 inch.

Nitto Terra Grapplers, 325/60R18 on 18" Eagle Alloys with no lift. Not my first choice on tire or wheel or size but I bought the Jeep with them already on it. I get slight rubbing on the anti-sway bars if I try to go to the limit on steering.

You want stout? 35/1250/15's with no lift. Mall crawler only.
Then after a 1 inch spring lift and a 1.75 inch puck spacer.

Shes mean. I rip off a lot of fenders though. I buy the clips in bulk.

I have 2.5 lift but 15's and 33's give it a nice fatty look.

Whoah, glad I found this thread, gives me some good hope! Also, I'm very glad to hear that some guys have had very positive experiences running 35"s with no lift on the 3.73 gears. I think that will be the route I eventually go, at least until the itch to get 37"s and some lift sets in hehe.

I love that stance. are those wheels 8s or 10s. How do the duratracs ride? I had wide nittos on a tacoma that were overly grabby on the highway. I'm assuming those are 33/12.50x15 is this correct?
