40in tires with no lift

(ignore the 1994 TJ, not sure how that made it through)

I'm actually a huge fan of rigs with minimal lift and oversized tires. If you are willing to cut your fenders up and install some beefy skid plates you don't need a lift kit and makes for a much safer and stable ride.

Plus I like the look of the lower profile and cut up fenders

I really like it too. I mean I like lift but sometimes it's just too much. I'm on 35's, have soa (5.5"), reverse shackles with 2" lift, and reverse eyelet aftermarket springs which is another 2". Especially since it is my daily driver and occasional off-roader, I am interested in getting
It lowered. I like the ideas from the article.

JP magazine did this a while ago with a 1" body lift. The article came out a month after I finished my Jeep. Doh! I'm SOA with 1.5" springs, 9" and Dana 44, tube fenders and 39.5" Iroks.

Post pics when you start building it. Mine is due for a change too.

I run 36" swampers with a 2.5" sua lift, 1" bl, 1" shackle lift. I could run 37's with a bit more bump stop in front. I run extents bumps front and rear. I comp cut my rear and built my own front fenders. I am tummy tucked, with beefed gas tank skid.

I would run more tire but my axles are maxed with my 36s imho. Stock d30 front, 8.8 LSD rear.

Bad thing about having big tires and no lift is no flex.

I might be wrong I've never had 40 inch tires on a stock jeep I'm not looking for criticism I'm just saying that I would think that because if you flex 2 inches your tire would cram up to your fender

You can have a pretty low rig and with some cutting and clearancing have 4-5in of uptravel. Downtravel is limited by what your suspension is.

I cant remember on the stock axles but I seem to recall they did custom perches and waggy springs to get like 3.5" of stretch to center the wheel in the well...

Ive got a setup very similar to YamJams, I havent comp cut my rears but I have trimmed and I have tube fenders up front, Im still running 33s and they look too small IMO, once I get my new rear in and stretch it a little Ill get some 35's to go on it. Ive got the room for the 35s now easily but im pushing the D35 as it is. Im at 19.5" to the frame and 18" to the belly skid.

and I think it flexes pretty damn good for only having 2.5" SUA
