Surprised there's not more 40s being posted on this thread. They're getting pretty common in the group I wheel with.

I see that you both have 14's Mines a 16

Did you have to trim any sheetmetal in the fender wells to fit the 40's ?

I just put a Metalcloak 3.5" lift and 37's Cooper SST Pro's on and the lower fender behind the rear tire looks like it could be close at full flex.

I trimmed the pinch seams on my '14. The '18 (on 37s) I trimmed the entire area inside the Poison Spyder fenders. It was quite a bit.

Yes, an inch or so, more from the front and rear of the wheel well. Here's a pic of the rear stuffed.

Yup, 3.6 and it does just fine, with the correct gearing, but a Hemi is in the plans. I want to put a few more miles on the 3.6 first. Currently at 42k.

Here is an overhead from the build. The AC Compressor isn't hooked up. Special Note the battery isn't under the hood. This is the Factory 2.8L i-4 not the Cummins swap.
