LJ - NO lift / MetalCloak and 35" tires

well no lift for now.... planning on a small lift but haven't done it yet.
kinda like the way it sits but kicking the idea of a small lift to prepare for the transition to a 37" tire in the distant future.

The dana 44's will handle 35's, but am not sure if you have to upgrade your axels to run 37's.:confused:

Good lookin Jeep:thumb:...I want the metal Cloak fenders, but can't afford them right now.:(

Did either of you cut the rear fenders or just bolt on the MC's?

I trimmed my rear fender wells at the bottom edges per the MetalCloak instructions.

Do you guys have any tire rubbing issues?

I added 1" bumpstop extensions front and rear. I have no issues with rubbing because of flex, but I need to add wheels spacers so I can go full lock without rubbing my front swaybar... or just put on an anti-rock :D

I had rubbing on the stock sway bar. I tried two washers on the steering stops and still had rubbing.
I took off the sterring stop washers and added a 4" lift with the Anti-Rock sway bar. Rubbing is gone now.

Yeah I'd like to see that too.

I've got an LJ that I'd like to run larger tires but don't want much lift.

ltdanyj I found pics of your jeep while looking for some steel rims for my unlimited. May i ask what backspacing you're running? I've been told 3.5 to 4 would be enough to prevent rubbing.
