2.5 lift and 35s
 
Is anyone running 2.5 inches of lift and 35s, or 315/75/16s on their 4dr?
If so, any fender or wheel well clearance issues? Math says itís only about ĺ inch difference in fender clearance, but the 35s are also about an inch wider too.

Thanks for the feedback iamagolfspaz, did you trim because of rubbing from flexing? Do you have sway bar disconnects in front? I was planning on getting some sway bar quick disconnects and wondering if the extra articulation would cause a problem on the trail. Thanks

I just trimmed the back due to tire rub when flexing with 35's. Front was no problem. I have the electric disco's.

I also have a 2.5 lift with 35" tires. I hadt o trim the rear fenders and a bit of the body because of rubbing. the fronts I trimed for the same reason. when I take of the disco's I would rub. I cut the side completely off.

Looks good. Come and trim mine.

I just ordered my 315/75/16s...I am assuming I am going to be having to do some trimming and maybe a hockeypuck to limit the full flex on the bumpstop.
