What mods are needed for 35s w/ no lift.
 
What would I need to cut, remove or add in order to pull off 35s while keeping the jeep as low as possible?

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

Farnham21 03-28-2013 01:54 AM

Chopped or flat fenders for sure

SLEIPNIR 03-28-2013 02:05 AM

Okay. Are the fenders and the pinch seam the only thing stopping a good flex with 35s on stock suspension?

Farnham21 03-28-2013 02:20 AM

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.

Mastermind171 03-28-2013 02:23 AM

this is a silly thread. 35s can fit, but will rub on everything. You won't have any room for flexing.


If you want 35s, get a 2.5lift.

Stock with 35 no lift. Only rubbing Is when someone is sitting in the back and I go I've a bump. Getting a lift this weekend though.

Hgarza3 03-28-2013 02:26 AM

^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

Sorry for starting a "silly thread" :rolleyes:

Seriously though, Thanks for the answers guys.

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.

You cannot keep the vehicle at stock height and ride 35s comfortably. There's your set answer. You will rub on bumps and unless your offroading on curbs at 1 mph you will run into serious problems. Your fenders will be toast. You will be rubbing like crazy against parts that honestly, you don't wanna rub against! If this is all for looks, blow 300-400$ on a cheap 2.5 lift and it will look and perform much better!! If on stock wheels, you will need SPIDERTRAX wheel spacers. This is the only brand you should buy do not cheap out on something that can easily kill you if they fail.

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.

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

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

Hgarza3 03-28-2013 03:12 AM

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

I'm running a Tera flex leveling kit, Ace flat fenders, my rims have 3.5" back spacing and Nitto trail grapplers 35". I did have to and 1" of bump stop to front and rear for clearance but didn't need to trim pinch seams.

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

ilikeguns 03-28-2013 07:17 AM

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!

35s on stock suspension and Spidertrax spacers. For daily driving there was no rubbing anywhere.

I did lift it 2.5" with an AEV kit so I could flex off road though.

Just a question, but why do you want to keep stock height?

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.
