Everything worked great.Trimmed the front splash guard under front bumper .Im going with a stubby bumper as soon as I figure out which one....
Had to trim the rock sliders in the back.....
absolutely no rubbing street wise...
Love the look and drives just like before.I can notice a slight difference in power .Not bad....in six gear on interstate...up hill....I don't have to downshift but it doesn't have the pep it did with the stockers.
These are bushwacker flats and fuel boost 16x8 and toyo 35x75x16 at2

the latter is my JK on 35s, with no lift. I installed smittybilt flats, a stubby & trimmed the pinch seam. No rubbing for normal street driving, which is where it'll be staying, until the funds for the lift become available.
Fresh install today... 35x12.5x15 Goodyear MTR Kevlar + 15x8 Level 8 Trackers
Discount Tire Direct really hooked me up. Absolutely recommend them!

Its always changing. I pulled the front springs and spacer and am running Metal Cloack 3.5 springs and C\A's up front an the JKU heavy spring rate rears. Also got the rest of my Cloak fenders

|Bamyrick226||I'm just saying a larger lift in a jku looks sweet, whether it is 4 or 6 inch.|
|06-16-2013 07:30 AM|
It's not the look I am trying to achieve but ability. For rule of thumb most feel that wheelbase to tire size should be 3:1, so the JKU wheelbase is 116"/3 = 38.6666667 so a 39" tire. To do that properly I feel you need a 6" lift. I am running 37" and it barely clears up front and the wheel well is to small in the rear to get a full stuff back there. To do bigger tires than what I have requires a lot more work and money. I will likely stick to 37"s but just go 6" lift to get more breakover clearance that I find is a problem for me and my jeep. This is why I wanted an LJ. Longer wheelbase than a TJ but not too long like a JKU. Plus it looks so good lifted with bigger tires.

|random512||thanks for the pics mac! btw are you running 17" wheels with those 35" duratracs?|

Hello! I have just done the no lift 35 set up with flat style fenders. was a little more work then i hoped, but everything seems to be ok! i really like the low and wide look of it, but will soon be adding a levelling kit to bring back the offroad capabilities.
had to stim the frame and remove the rock rails for cutting aswell. also trimmed splash guard, kept it for air flow purposes. still decent space from bumper but ill be cutting that soon to a stubby. all in good time freinds.
last pic was just for fun :P moms 2013 grand cherokee LE with my old 32 mudders lol

Glad that someone posted this, as was thinking about this as well. Going to get the RK 2.5 lift, as I do want to run 35s, but getting lift kit, wheels, and tires all at the same time would be too much money.
So was planning to see if I can run 35s with just a levelling kit, maybe for a year (with minimal offroading), then get the lift done later...and based on comments and pics here, seems it would work

|Flint_Holbrook||how about you all measure the height of you 35" on the jeep at road inflation pressure and at trail pressure. You may be surprised. It might explain why you can clear w/o a lift|
|06-08-2013 10:25 AM|
|Bamyrick226||I agree. Jku too long and need a bigger lift IMO to look good. 4 inch on a jku is bad a though|
|06-08-2013 10:17 AM|
|Asphalt Assault||I think this should only be done with a 2 door. JKU is just to long if your planning to go offroad to tackle any thing serious. Just IMHO.|

35's, flat fenders and about to install teraflex performance leveling kit. I just like the lower profile look I guess. Plus didn't want to change to much under the jeep.

Thanks for all the feedback everyone! Seems like I'm getting some mixed feedback - some people are running 35's without any lift without issue. However, some people seem to be saying 35's without lift have practical limits, even for on-road use.
One guy posted a vid above of a white jeep doing some gnarly offroading with only 1" lift in front. The offroading in that vid is far beyond any type of offroading I would attempt in my jeep. Given these facts and given that I want to keep the gap between my tires and fenders to a minimum, does it seem reasonable to go with 35's and a 1" leveling kit for my next wrangler?

I've been running 315/70-17s on mine with no lift for about a year now.

|Z-TJ||I did it for a few week while waiting on my lift to be installed. It was not ideal. I could not turn full and if I had people in the back seat it would rub on the rubi rails. I think with one inch spacer, flat finders, and a lot of offset you will be fine. It also looked bada$$. IMO|
