I'm going with an SOA on my next YJ. I'm liking the RubiconExpress kit that Quadratec offers because it uses 1.5" lift springs, which would give me about 7" of lift.

Now the question...I know the 35s would be no problem, but could I comfortably fit 37s? I'm referring to this Jeep build as "Project MudSlut", and I won't be doing any rock crawling, so I don't suspect I'd need alot of articulation room.

My buddy's TJ has 8 inches of lift with 33s, and I don't like the look, nor think its safe, so I wanna get the most tire under the Jeep that I can.

All input welcome :D

That is the same lift I have and you will be able to fit 37" tires no problem without cutting. i made the mistake of cutting my fenders and now I have so much room I am going to 40" tires and dana 60's. on the other note and not to hi jack your thread but I have some 37" mtr's that I was going to use on my jeep for sale here as well. :firedevil:

got a buddy running 2" bds springs soa and 42s on 60s.....plenty of room for those....he is wider but that lets him flex more than stock axles so i think that you should fit 37s no prob.....another buddy runs 2" bds springs soa on stock width axles and 36 iroks which are 36.8"s tall so i dont see why you would fit them in that scenario either

Will they fit without the flat fenders though? I'm keeping the stock fenders.

Yep thats part of what I meant when I said no cutting, if you were to flex it out you might rub the back of the front fender flare but you really need to flex it alot with that lift to get it to stuff that far. I have already done it, you will gain closer to 8 if you use the RE spring perches as well. And as a bonus if you use those perches you can use the extra holes to gain some wheelbase as well.

i wish i new what BAMF means, clue me in:D

i was kidding about hating, but i'm not a BIG mudder fan, but to each their own. in my stupid opinion, jeeps are "better" than mudders. whatever that means. they can do so much more. i'd rather see an old blazer or ford truck be a muddder. but, thats why there's so many different jeeps around.

but that is really just one dumb opinion, and muddin is fun. i'd build a mudder some day, but it would be a junky old full size big motor beast, and the mud is just so bad for them.

but sometimes the mud is what is around, so go out and enjoy it. :D

not necessarily. it depends on your spring set up. ive gotten by without one for a year or so now.....although i do plan to build one at some point
