Pic Request... 3.5 Lift, Flat Fenders, and 35s

I Have the 3.5 X Factor Pro Mid Arm System coming in and am looking to get the Gen Right flats. Want to make sure it doesn't look like a roller skate on 35s.


Thanks

You are right. The 37s do look nice and balanced. Just worried about my wimpy little D30.

I plan to get gussets, inner and outer sleeves, axles, and knuckles. But not sure if that will even be enough.

I had the stock rubicon 44 with sleeve and gussets added for strength. I ran 37's and wheeled the heck out of it and it held up. I just upgraded to prorock 44 and longfield axle. Do you have the stock 44 or are you in a non rubicon.

If you go with flats it will def make the 35s looks small. Atleast go with 37s. I had 35s with flat fenders and upgraded to 40s to fill the wheel gap.

35" with flat fenders and 3" looked decent on our shop 2 door, but looked small on our shop 4 door.

Our newest shop 4 door looks ideal with 37's and the same 3" with flat fenders

Yeah I definitely would like 37s. Just worried about my D30 and it being my DD. I drive all day for work. Not to mention the $$ factor. My wife is going to flip if I have to spend all that additional money on axles. I wonder how long the 30 could handle the 37s before giving?

gusset the c's, truss or sleeve it to keep the housing strong...and keep it open diff to keep stress reduced on the ring and pinion and shafts...you will probably be able to hold it together if you're a gentle wheeler.
