Do you mean, "with zero modification?"

When I tried that, my 31s dented/creased my fenders pretty badly. But then again, I wheeled it pretty hard. Also, if you don't want the inside of your tires to rub, you'll probably have to add a washer or two under each steering stop.

Depends on what factory wheels you've got I guess then. Let me clarify, most of the time with zero modification other than sometimes the steering stops if you don't have enough back spacing. Also, I've never heard ofof damage occurring so I guess as with all things jeep, YMMV.

And come to think of it, I might have already switched over to aftermarket wheels that have less backspacing before the damage to my fenders occurred.

Thanks for the info folks. I think my rims are stock. They are aluminum and I saw info from a previous thread that makes me think so. Anyway, when I add a winch I am sure that a small lift (1 3/4) inch will be needed in the front. Maybe that will take care of the fender rub, and with fixing the stops, I should be in clover. Thanks again.

Hay man I use a set of 2" coil spring spacers... They are great!! Don't notice a difference in ride at all.. All 4 are only $60 from amazon!

With the 2" you can do 33"s which look much more beefy than 31s
