37's on Stock Wheels

Let's see them. I'm thinking of trying something new this time around. I've had 35's before and wondering if I should make the jump to 37's. Also, In addition to wheel spacers and the re-gear, what else should I expect to upgrade in comparison to running 35's.

Planning on a 3.5in lift, gears, spacers (depending on if I keep the stock wheels), shocks. I know there is a ton more to do to, but this is where I would start. My Jeep is a 2017 Unlimited, 3.21 gears, 17" wheels.

Thanks in advance.

The 12.5" wide will work on a factory wheel with a spacer. For 13.5" wide you'll need a new wheel.

For preventive I would truss the front d30, w/ c gussets and balljoints, just for good measure. That puts allot of pressure on some weak d30 components.

Unless it is on road all the time, my opinion is to stay at a 35 with that D30. You can "build them up", but price it out seems hardly worth it to me. Just two cents. Not that you can't regear, but that is still putting money into something that is ehh at best. And at the end of the day, the pumpkin is still a little small to be turning 37s imo.

This is not to say that it cannot be done or has not been done with success.
