2dr JKs trimmed for 37s?

My 37" Iroks just arrived. I already have flat fenders installed up front and I rears are sitting in the garage to be installed. I rolled the 37 next to the 33s in the back where I'm missing the stock fender... Needs some trimming, I don't want to slice into my nice new tires the first time I stuff one up under articulation.

Any one have any pics they can share of how much they cut from where? Also how much bump stop are you running?

Don't forget that half of the height difference is going to be between the Jeep and the ground.
From 33 - 37 you're looking at roughly 4" of difference total which means 2" radius.
Your tire will sit 2" closer to the seam.

I have 37" Trepador bias plies... they are advertised as 37.1".

I have a lift, stock lower control arms and adjustable uppers that are set for pinion angle, not clearance and my rear tires don't hit at all. It really looks like it should though...

I guess it's because the wheel travels slightly rearward as the suspension compresses? Without the correct bumpstops it probably would hit but I haven't cycled the suspension without the stops to see yet. I want to because I would like to go a little lower in the future if possible. 3 1/2" now...

Correct the axle will move back before in because of the arc.
