This is my opinion, but 2.5 and 37s is going to leave some to be desired. You're going to want the extra belly clearance and you're going to have to bump stop more than 3" and do a lot of trimming even with flat flares to keep it from rubbing badly. If you're just scooting around town in it, it'll be OK, but you're going to want flat flares.

On the JKU the extra inch makes a world of difference.

This is mine on a 2.5 with 35s:





3.5 with 35s:







3.5 with 37s:





3.5 with 37s and flat flares:

2.5" RK long arm and 37" MTRs.

I have 2" bump stops in front and 3" in the rear. Yes there was a good deal of trimming in the rear.

The condition of my skids state that I rub a lot. Occasionally, I get high centered. When I do, it sucks (a lot).

With that said, I still like LCG. Just my opinion though.
