I have a really low clearance to get to my house. Regardless I think a low center of gravity couldn't hurt in the long run.

ilikeguns if your air dam is still on, you'll probably need to trim it. I'm running 35s with the TF leveling kit and the Pintlers (5.2"BS). I had to trim my flares but glad that I did!

This is pretty much your easiest way of running 35's an gettin away with it for the most part

Hgarza3 @sleipnier thanks man I'm no where near do e though. You got a pretty good looking rig yourself

Farnham21 Just get a lift not that big a deal. Teraflex makes a quality budget boost for like 400 or less. Or a kit with coils for 486

Right on. Thanks for the info. Guess its back to looking at 33s

flyinion From what I understand, flat fenders and wheel spacers should have you set. Metal Cloak makes a high clearance fender that you can supposedly run a 37 on the stock suspension if you really wanted to but they're not cheap and don't offer much coverage over the tire if you live in a State where that's an issue. You may or may not have to trim the pinch seam with 35's. From what I've read around here the issue seems to be more with if you have lifted and don't have adjustable control arms to re-center the wheels because the lift with factory CA's will pull the wheel towards the pinch seam.

If I start chopping away the body, would that help, or is there just tons of other parts still going to get in the way? I'm willing to put money into achieving this, I am all for replacing the suspension if I have to, but I want to keep it at stock height.

If you want 35s, get a 2.5lift.

Hgarza3 ^only mod is a stubby bumper without it I would rub like hell on full turn. With stubby bumper I have zero rub at full turn

Farnham21 There is no good flex on stock suspension. These are things that will prevent you from rubbing during full turns and large bumps. You will not be flexing like a lifted jeep just cause you have 35s. Tires don't max your flexibility better, shocks and coils do.
03-28-2013 01:05 AM
SLEIPNIR Okay. Are the fenders and the pinch seam the only thing stopping a good flex with 35s on stock suspension?
03-28-2013 12:54 AM
Farnham21 Chopped or flat fenders for sure

Would definitely need wheel spacers and trim the pinch seam... At least get coil spacers do get some clearance for the tires

What mods are needed for 35s w/ no lift.
