Why flat fenders and small lift....

I have a 2.5" old man emu lift and flat fenders and can run 35" tires. The pros I have found are the center of gravity stays lower and the spring packs having less leafs and arch give more flex....

Plus Old Man Emu is the only yj lift that valves their shocks and sets their leaf packs to the set up of your jeep so your not just getting a shock for its length. many manufactures sell you shocks based on their length not including the proper valving for the vehicle it's going on. You could be getting the same shock they would sell for a truck.

I ran that way for a while with 33's and it was great, but when I stepped up to 35s, I found it just wasn't tall enough. Just going over mild terrain caused the tires to stuff and come off the ground. I would highly recommend it with high line fenders or metalcloaks, though. The low center of gravity is great for driving and very solid feeling in off camber situations.

Which lift and fenders did you run? So now you have 7" of lift to run 35's?

I had some 2.5" springs, not sure on the brand. My buddy had them laying around. With CC Fab front fenders and Smittybilt rear tube flairs. It was a great low COG setup with 33's, but 35's just didn't have enough room to move since they won't fit in a YJ rear wheel well. 33's tuck in there perfectly.

I'm running about 7"-8" of lift total now, and can still get the 35s to rub.

Jrozar, can you post some pics? I have 2" BDS with 5/8" shackles. I'm looking to add a little BL with MML to get rid of my TC drop. Then I would love to go to 33". I have 31" tires now.
