Bent jeep I think that pulling the flares off or getting smaller ones makes it look wider.

I love that stance. are those wheels 8s or 10s. How do the duratracs ride? I had wide nittos on a tacoma that were overly grabby on the highway. I'm assuming those are 33/12.50x15 is this correct?

These were taken right before and right after the tires got swapped. the same day, within hours of each other...

HollisBT Whoah, glad I found this thread, gives me some good hope! Also, I'm very glad to hear that some guys have had very positive experiences running 35"s with no lift on the 3.73 gears. I think that will be the route I eventually go, at least until the itch to get 37"s and some lift sets in hehe.

dklassen I have 2.5 lift but 15's and 33's give it a nice fatty look.

33X12.5 MT/R's on 15X10 procomp steels. no lift, and if you wheel it like you stole it, you WILL grind your fenders up

Do you have any other pictures of this wrangler?

You want stout? 35/1250/15's with no lift. Mall crawler only.
Then after a 1 inch spring lift and a 1.75 inch puck spacer.

Shes mean. I rip off a lot of fenders though. I buy the clips in bulk.

Gunner 35-1250-17 KM2's on MB Black Razors with 4 inch offset. Trimmed the front air dam and the rear of the rock rail. No more noise on the street. 3.73 gears.

kwill Nitto Terra Grapplers, 325/60R18 on 18" Eagle Alloys with no lift. Not my first choice on tire or wheel or size but I bought the Jeep with them already on it. I get slight rubbing on the anti-sway bars if I try to go to the limit on steering.

JetRidin What brand tires are those? Looks great!!
09-18-2013 11:13 PM
Inmate3030 I went with 325-60-18's on aftermarket 18 inch wheels. It is really wide and I didn't have to do any lift. I had to trim the plastic tab on the inside of the bumper by about 1/4 inch.

idahoguy Nice!

Tenorino I ended up with Nitto Trail Grapplers 285/65/18 on Fuel Hostage Wheels, no lift.

Any lift I do would be 1.5 to 2" max down the road and just a off-road (not too rough) weekend warrior.

Thanks.

Anyone else think the wider tires get squirrely on the highway sometimes?


Side pic? Did you get a lift? If so, pics?

NICE!

Lol, I DIY everything...

The grill guard is chainmaille i knitted out of aluminum rings. Made a chainmaille seat cover, and am smack in the middle of thatching a cargo net out of paracord on a pneumatically lifting steel frame I made

Come to think of it, I suppose I oughtta create a few threads... Been kinda busy on mods for a few weeks

Had the fenders stock for a while, but eventually those 33's busted the clips.
