wanting 35's

This is a dum question but I need to ask. I just put bushwaker fender flares on my JK. I have 32's with no lift and they look tiny with the new flares. I want 35's but I have to wait a while to get my lift. With the fender flares giving me 9" of extra tire clearance can I fit the 35's with no lift? Or do I have to wait?

might be able to get away with wheel spacers added then your 35"s you wont have much flex to let those 35"s do their thing though. and the rear pinch seam will need to be taken care of. why not do a budget boost. its about $100 more than the cost of the average 35" tire

With the flares you will have room for 35's. You may have rubbing lock to lock without changing the wheels. Spacers for the wheels or new wheels with 4 or less BS with let you run trouble free on 35's.

X2. Teraflex 2.5 lift w TF 9550 shocks is around $500. I would like to see pix with the new fenders and no lift. I bet it looks lifted with all that new space between the tires and fenders. You could probably run 35's with no lift if you get aftermarket wheels with a backspace of 4.5. I ran 33x12.5's with no lift and stock fenders with no problem. The wheels are 17x9 w 4.5 backspace.

33's w no lift

I'm leaning the same direction you are. Flat fenders, 35" tires, new wheels, and a BB (or slightly taller progressive rate springs. For the way I use the JK I think I'll be in good shape. I can always add a ligt later if it turns out to be not enough. I also would love to see the JK with the flat fenders on stock with stock suspension and tires.

Dude I ordered a 3.25" rc lift with shipping 424 ordered Sunday got here wed. Install on fri and 35's should b here Monday... lift was cheap and came with everything I needed and shocks. 3.25 is only 50 bucks more than the 2.5 and comes with break line relocators and track bar bracket and swaybar links.

Nice one Codd. Why dont you go have a Crainal Anal Inversion and call me tomorrow?

Thanks to people like you I have job security!

I just uploaded some pics of it to my profile in the album's. It has a lot of tire clearence. I dont want to go cheap on the lift thats the only reason I havent got one yet. I have my rims coming this week for it. I can only get the tires next month or get the lift next month. Then in june I can get the other.

Check out the pics. I will take more today to give you a better look at those fenders. The flat bushwacker fenders are worth every dollar. Everyday some one says how good they look on the JK. Lots of room to.
