its states that the kit recommends 8-9 inch rims with no less than 3.5 inch backspacing.

my question is, with 15X8 rims with 3.75 backspacing do you think they would work? i have a set of 33X12.50 on the cherokee that i would switch out with the tires on the wrangler.

Yea you will be fine. I run 3.75 backspacing too and I don't rub. You will be fine

That should fit.

Do you have sopme pics of that highline kit?
How much higher are the fenders than stock?

Agree.....You should be golden.

no pics yet, the fenders sit at the rocker panel and cowl line. i think it is about 3-4 inches higher in the front. not sure about the back. the rear flares sit about 1/2" below the top of the tub i think. i have not installed any flares on the kit because its not painted.

You're killing me, redneck. It's prime deer season around here. I've been going to work an hour early so I can drive in at dawn when the deer are moving...

here is one of the best comparison i could find.

the red one has a 4.5 RE lift and 35's. The yellow one has a 4 inch lift and 33's.
