Need actual proof on 35" with no lift. JK 4 dr

I see all these threads about this but has anyone done it. I know they say that it is possible with flat fenders. Has anyone got actual facts about this or pictures. I do not want to void warranty yet. It is a 2011 and only 300 miles on her. would like to lift but want wheels now, can always lift once off warranty.

You would also have to get new wheels with smaller backspacing or use a wheel spacer.

I'm looking forward to seeing some pics of this too, if there's any out there.

My two cents is only to add that you won't "void" a warranty by lifting, or doing anything else for that matter.

Unless it's changed from the 2010 warranty, your warranty excludes modifications and any damage done by them. For example, if you put on aftermarket wheels, they won't be covered by Chrysler's warranty. (Hardly surprising, given that Chrysler didn't give them to you in the first place.) Similarly, if you install a massive lift and ruin your drive shafts, neither the lift parts nor the ruined drive shafts will be covered.

The gray area comes where causation is fuzzy. If you reprogram your onboard computer and the engine starts mysteriously running hot and burning out other components, is Chrysler responsible? Who knows. If it's debatable whether your modification caused further damage, then you may have warranty problems depending on the dealer.

No matter what the case, however, your warranty is not "voided" by modifications. To totally "void" a warranty would require something like fraud. Perhaps stealing the Jeep. Something where Chrysler could assert that the two of you never really engaged in a contract to begin with.

Now, on to the photos!!

Try to get someone on the house show you--that'll be easiest.

There's a little image of a paper clip near where you're typing your response. Click it,
and, if you have the photo on your computer, you'll be able to find it and attach it to your post.

If the photos aren't on your computer but on a camera, you've got more work to do.

I've contacted both metalcloak and poison spyder about this.....they both make fenders that will enable 37's on stock suspension. the guys at metalcloak put a lift on pretty much just because they wanted to, and the guys @ poison spyder lifted that way they could go bigger than 37. both companies however, will tell you the same thing: minor trimming on the rear fender well and you'll want to trim that plastic air dam or get a new front bumber

You are gonna have to trim the pinch seam in the rear fender well if you go any bigger than a 33 with no lift. Ive scoped out some of the bigger jeeps around here, and with a lift or not, seems like most shops are cutting it off at an angle to prevent tire damage.

another thing you'll want to do is sleeve your front axle if you go larger than 33". you can buy the sleeves @ offroadevolution. over a period of time the larger tires will take their toll on your front axle tubes if you wheel it.....it's a common problem and usually results in the weaker side shearing near the pumpkin.....proper prep work will save your butt on trail so make sure you beef up your front axle before you decide to do a lot of wheelin on larger tires. it may hold for a bit...say, 3-6 years, but if you wheel it often it will happen sooner than later
