I want to put these on. What all do I need to do to get them to fit without rubbing? I have a $225 budget and do light offroading. Can I just put a 124" body lift on and still handle like my BMW? Stock brakes and tailgate hinges have to stay as well.

I read that 1.75" backspacing is good too, right? I don't want to lift and I don't want my tires sticking out too far...

Can I fit 37's without lifting or cutting my fender flares? I won't go off road that much.

I'm putting 40's on my JT. Will it work with the 3.21 gears?

Yes! With the 3.0l EcoDiesel we can finally answer every gearing question with "YES!"

Will the lightbar shoot over the spare? It's likely going to be like this...

They say with the JT you can fit a 35" spare under the bed behind the rear axle. So in the spirit of this thread...


Will I be able to fit a 37" tire under the bed?

He can regear. I'm sure someone would love to have a set of 3.73 gears for their d35 axles.

Does anyone know of a kit that will turn my Gladiator into a longer 4 door Wrangler so I can max out my grocery space?

What about a lowering kit? I was into mini trucks in the 90s so this JT is getting slammed!

If I want to run a 37" tire with a 20" wheel and 3.5" of backspace, what color of lift would work best?
