Pictures of Unlimited with 2.5 inch lift, 35s, and flat fenders

Today I installed the 2.5 Rock Krawler 2.5 stock mod and 35-12.5-17 Dick Cepek Mud Country tires on my wife's Unlimited. I also have a set of Bushwacker flatties sitting in the garage destined for her Jeep, but now we are having second thoughts about the amount of wheel well gap. Anyone have pictures with this combo?

Here is a pic of how it sits now.

I love the way that looks, I am thinking the same lift for mine but maybe with 33's and keep the stock flares. I know what you mean about the proportion of space between the tire to flare gap and wondering if the RK 2.5" and 33's will look ok....I love the DW Blue and the black wheels.

Your Jeep will look so much better without those huge meat curtains. Install the flat fenders.

Install the bushwackers, they do make the tires look smaller but 35's are big enough that it looks good IMO

That's the problem. She looked at it the way it sits now and says "I'm going to need 37s if we put on the Bushwackers"

More pics please. I also have an unlimited with a 2.5" spring lift. I love the flat fender look but am worried about too much wheel gap. What's the actual measured height of the dick cepecks? My 34" maxis bighorns measure 33 on the dot

37's and you'll need a regear.

I really think you will be fine, but that is just my opinion of course. The "look" is very subjective! My Nitto's measure a little over 34 1/2 and I don't think there is too much of a gap between them and the fenders front or rear. If you didn't check out my build thread here are a few closer shots..





Hope this helps! I know I agonized over some of my choices, but I finally just had to pull the trigger. I'm happy with how it turned out, but I do have room for 37's

I don't know. Will have to go measure when she gets home.

Thanks for the pictures. This is exactly what I was looking for. Ultimately it's up to her.

IMO ... Leave it alone.

With that said... a full stuff in the rear did rub on my 2.5" TF 2dr.
Four 3/4" pucks solved the problem for my 35's.

.................................................. .....................

Sorry, Just not a fan of flat flares.

Davesrb ... Do you still have your stockers?

I had a bunch of rubbing issues in the front with factory flares. 2" OME HD lift, 35's and Bushwackers now. With that said Im dumping the Bushwackers for a set of aluminum flares. Bushwackers have turned out to be a little fragile and their after sale support sucks giant balls. Damage one flare and you have to buy atleast a pair. Flexed out:
