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.|

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
