|Scythian||I see a ton of photos that are way too close on clearance. It may be okay for street but there going to be some serious if not damaging rubbing going on if anything more than a gravel road were undertaken.|

|Jedi9||Yes it was, that type of stuff is not for me|

Here is mine with MCE fender and 315's. I have the exact same clearance as I did with stock fenders and 2.5" AEV. Its very functional on road and off road it will be fine for my needs. I may lift 2" at some point with RK 1.5 or OME 2" or just a leveling kit, but not right now.

Here's my 2014 with 35s and no lift. I'm on a strict no off-road diet until my lift gets installed , hopefully soon. I was supposed to get it installed right before Christmas but things came up that sucked the funds away...
To fit, I had to trim the front air dam and also a couple inches off the Rubi rails. They fit but I wouldn't want to flex too much.

33 & 35's
Here is a pic with my 2014 on 33's and also 35's and a 2" budget boost in both pics.No rubbing or any other problems...yet. Next up 37's and flatties

|SteelThrillsseeker||Ok, I ask because I'm not savy in a garage or on a computer. I'll have to pay someone to do the work. I'd like Mickey Thompson mtz's 35 inch with stock 18 wheels and stock fenders. I don't want to cut or rub for that matter. Will I have to lift? What would I need exactly?|

Hi, here is my jeep and my friends.
Red one is mine, 33's with 3" lift
Silver is my bud's, 35's with level kit, rubi springs and 1" BL

The thing with Lifts are that they AREN'T practical for all, i also feel about 95% of people use it for just for looks, while the other 5% actually get use out of a lifted vehicle.
lifting a vehicle is the same as lowering one. for everyday drivability it's not the most convenient.

Just another point to consider...
Don! Long time, no type!

Just a couple of observations after reading this thread, for whatever its worth.
SHAWN3R, your Jeep is bad ass. Very well done.
I hope the person in the JKU with a 1" front lift, and 35s, on that video, didn't brag about making that obstacle with just a 1" lift. I don't know if I would call that "making it". Kind of looked like he was driving by "brail", and feeling his way along the rocks with the bottom of his Jeep, to me.
I think the minimal lift fad has gone a little too far. I went that route on a couple of Jeeps, and I don't think it works as well off road as a Jeep with a decent amount of lift. The advantage of minimal lift is really just minimal expense. It doesn't work better, or look better, it just cost less.
Here's a couple of photos of some Jeeps I've owned with minimal lift, and the Jeep I own now with a decent lift. The current Jeep works a whole lot better off road.
2010 JKR w/ 2 1/2" lift and 35s
2011 JKUR w/ 2 1/2" lift and 37s. I later put flat fenders on this Jeep.
2014 JK w/ 3 1/2" lift and 35s
So really, for minimal additional lift, you get much better off road function, at least from what I've seen.

Flat fenders, new front bumper and new rear tire carrier is all that is needed. People stop feeding others false info.

|JKsurfer||Anyone one else with more input on this? I really love the look of 35's with no lift. I have an aftermarket bumper already and am looking to try this out.|

|Asphalt Assault||I think it can be done just setup is crucial re wheel back spacing and need flat fenders.|

|donmeca2020||its not required to trim the seams with the 2014s from what i read. as for NEEDING a lift, no one NEEDS one. people only want one for aesthetics and or if you plan on doing some hardcore offroading. for light to mild off roading you can easily throw some 17 inch wheels and the 315/70/17s on without problem.|
