where are you guys getting this 7.5 inch lift or more for clearing 36,37's? me and my friends all run 3.5-4.5'' of lift with 35's and 37's with no problems. all it takes is some trimming and bump stops. The stability isn't even comparable, and people don't call you a dumb ass, or a mall crawler.

well I could cut and probaly fit 40s if I really wanted to but its too much I think.
this is really stable it is on full widths which are 7in wider than stock jeep axles.
Rustys offroad has 8in coils and so does rubicon express thats where mine are from. I can flex completly out with the 36's on my jeep it has pretty good travel for what it is.

meaning that they flex better than if i had bigger tires which would just slam the body
i think its the perfect tire size but thats my personal opinion
i can stuff the 36's too
