Now it's an LCG Jeep...

Just put 35s on my jeep with 2.5" lift, I do have adjustable coil spacers, but they're as low (high?) as they can be, meaning they're not doing much. -no body lift.
Love the look, I'll be wheeling John Bull and Dishpan this weekend, hoping for no rub.

Next on the list is a SYE and tummy tuck skid, followed by 456 gears and a super 30 kit with ARB.

Whacha think?

I think it looks pretty nice. Maybe some tube fenders would benefit you a bit more.

I can't figure out how you got 35s on it with only 2" of lift. Especially since it's showing so much wheel well. I can see you trimmed the flares but geez...

it's 2.5 inches, which I'm told can make all the difference!

The coil spacers gave me another inch, if I have to I'll crank them up on the trail this weekend. The RC Rock crawler lift I have says it's good up to 35s. We'll see this weekend.

Looks like a 1" BL would be beneficial for the 35's as well as for your listed Tummy Tuck.

Curious to see the flex of this, since I believe you'll be rubbing but I could be wrong.

Upgree with above statement, tube fenders would help.

You may consider some MCE fenders...those will free up some clearance up front. Im doing almost exactly what you are. I have a 2.5 lift and plan on putting 35's. The difference is, I installed a 1.25 BL instead of coil spacers since it will be needed for the TT. These fenders run around 160 for the pair...something to consider

Looks good Dirt . . . I dig the LCG set up . . . especially on trails like Dishpan . . . the lower the better for the waterfall. Have fun out there testing it out.

Looks great. I don't think you will need any other mods to make it work. How much up travel do you have on your shocks/bump stops? Do you have both the front and rear ACOS? I think they are like 3/4" over stock at the lowest setting, so depending on what your springs are add that height.

Have 'em, but havn't installed the rears. I got that pre-runner look thing goin on and I kinda dig it.
I'll know more after this weekend, It's not unheard of for me to break out the BFH and 'make' things fit...

I forgot that ya gatta do a BL to do the TT, Having been a lifted truck guy for many years, I still have the "BLs are for schmo's" mentality... Gonna have to get over that one I guess... Deff going with a TT soon, gatta re-gear this heep first though.

Here she is at almost full stuff, I still had a little more, but the guys I wheel with aren't much for stopping and taking a bunch of pics unless you're broke... THEN they LOVE taking pictures.

Anyhow, Cons_Table reminded me about the MCE flats, and they just came back in stock, So, they'll be here today.

Looks good man. You did a good job trimming those flares. They're functional and they look like you spent some time on them instead of just hacking at 'em with a sawzall.

Well, Cons_Table, I blame you!

I couldn't help myself, and bought the MCE fenders... Love them! Easy install and lots more room. - More than I got by trimming the stock flairs - Which are now for sale with a fresh coat of krylon on them, PM me with an offer if anyone is interested.

Noticed you guys don't have front signals at all right now...

And i have no lift right now. Had my jeep for 3mo. So would it just be dumb if i wanted to install these, prior, with the plan to lift late on? lol

Another LCG idea, this is 2" OME with AEV highline fender kit with 35's. No body lift. Haven't rubbed fenders yet, but was rubbing on stock sway bar when turning, Currie Antirock solved that, then rubbing on lower control arm when turning, but one washer under steering stops solved that. Now doesn't rub anywhere. Still many other things in progress, Rokmen skids on the way.

Getting a highline kit is cheating.

Naw.....it's a very viable option if a person is wanting a LCG with bigger tires. I think the fenders and the flares look goofy, but the hood kicks ass. To each their own. All in all it's a very capable rig.

I was playing with him....Other than Metalcloak fenders (BAD A$$), the highline kit is probably one of the best LCG setups, No? I do agree the fenders look goofy tho.

I'm not bashing the Metalcloaks, I just don't like the way they look, especially the arched ones. Hopefully, more people will buy them, that way my Genrights will look even better to me!!
