True. My 315/75r16 Duratracs just barely make contact with my Bushwacker flats - on the piece that wraps around the pinch seam at the front of the wheel well. It's so minor that I haven't heard it rub now that it is slightly scuffed from the first time wheeling it.

You can see clearance with the rancho 2" and flats here. I loved the fenders. Have to see in person as they look 100 times better. Cheers

Don't want to derail the thread with the hurricane fenders. They are fantastic. From what I read concerning material used, I'm thinking they switched the molds, as they are the same color as the factory fenders. they needed additional fastening I felt, but really nice overall with nice fit.

I'll try to post up additional photos of the height with flat fenders. CheerS.

mpb1335 Jeep Matt-

Looks really good. How are the 35s with it disconnected? I'm installing my kit Sunday and starting to look at tire options. Planning to retain the factory 17" and get either a 33 or 34.

I run 315/75r16 Duratracs with Bushwacker flats. They are a little over 34"

mpb1335 Not to revive an old thread but just ordered this kit today after weeks of research. Really excited to get those 9000s hooked up on the 2010 JKR! Will post pictures when it's done.

What's the largest tire size anyone has run on this kit? I'm going to be replacing the 32" KMs and retaining the 17" rims, hoping for a 33-34" tire and am willing to shave off the fenders.

Fr8dawg It doesn't matter what kit your installing... Changing out shocks, springs, and adding a spacer is all the same lol

Go on YouTube and look up teraflex. They have some great install videos which apply to the Rancho sport kit (shock and coil swap)

When we weren't in a swimming pool, chasing kids or BBQ-ing I spent my July 4th crawling under the JKU installing the lift.

I'm done and nothing has fallen off after the first 50 miles which for my shade tree skills is a big success! The kit was relatively straight forward and the 9000 shocks are great. Thank you Matt and Rancho for standing beside your product and getting me taken care of.

Here are the before and after pics......
Matt has helped me as well. Best Customer Satisfaction Rep I have seen in a very long time. KUDOS Matt. Thanks

What's OT using TF rears (1.5's)
Rancho's front is a linear coil. I would assume a linear would have to be run to match the front.
Synergy and TF are the 2 I can think of.
WRONG.
The .75" is for the 4 door
The 1.75" is for the 2 door

With this kit it looks like the most I will need to add are some Teraflex sway bar links and I'd be all set.

Thanks for the write up!
