I haven't been on here much lately, but a lot has been done to the jeep. I cracked a stock leaf spring and really needed new shocks, so I decided to go for the lift. I looked around for lifts and heavily thought about what lift would be the best for the $. I read all kinds of reviews, but ultimately I decide to go with a rough country lift. I know first hand that they aren't the greatest lifts ever, but I didn't want to put too much into it because eventually when I have more time on my hands I'll be doing a spring over and slightly bigger axles. So I had planned on 33's until a buddy gave me a set of 35's for free. So now I needed a way to clear 35's I wanted metal cloaks but they take 6+ weeks to get after ordering. So I decided to do a 2" body lift and when I get the metal cloaks I'll get rid of the body lift. So now I have ordered the 4" RC and the 2" BL . The 35's where for a 18" wheel so I ordered those too. All along I wanted a YJ that looked different, not the same ole 15" steelies or 16" steelies. So I opted for a 18x12 fuel hostage wheels. This gave me the stance I wanted. I know this style isn't for everyone but I love the wide stance look with deep lip wheels. So put the lifts on took 2 days to do a lot of stuck bolts. The body lift went on easily. I have a 8.8 waiting to go in just waiting on new spring plates and u bolts. The 8.8 has superior shafts 4.56 gears and an Eaton e-locker.
Well if anyone actually made it though all that here's the pictures.
The 18's look fine since you have a big enough tire to make it work. Now if you were running 29" rubber bands we might have something different to talk about. I wish it was legal in PA to run without flares.
Yeah probably, but I do have plans on either metal cloaks or making my own flares. That will completely solve the problem. I can turn the wheel lock to lock and drive in a complete circle with now rub. Add a little flex in there and they will more than likely hit the back corner area you are talking about
