Can you say Rb Rub Rub! More cutting or more lift or smaller tires, sorry not trying to be mean but it looks like you will rub just pulling out of your driveway. I have a friend with 3.5 inches of lift and rubs at full stuff with 32's. Hope it works for ya, kind of looks good otherwise.

Yeah. I bet you haven't even driven it anywhere yet because those tires would rub on the fenders at about 1/4 turn of the wheel. With cut fenders, control arms adjusted just right and proper bumpstoping my 33s just barely stay out of the fenders on my ZJ.

Turn the wheel to crank and post a picture , that should help solve the rubbing argument.

It looks like it is rubbing in the front sitting there.

Thanks for the feedback that's what I'm looking for! I will take pics when I get off work I have put 167 miles on it on the road, and at full turn it doesn't rub anywhere in the front. These wheels and tires are not permanent just a set I got in a trade.. I normally run 33x12.50x15 baja claws on 15x10 soft 8s.

I also will be out at bundy hill this weekend, ill have pics from that when I happens also.

Yes I've removed the sway bar links, I normally drive it around without them. I don't drive this truck much. I had to heat up the firwall and pound it in about 1/4" that's about it, I have trimmed, but as minimal as possible.

same. i'm running 4.5" with 33s as well and i had to cut my fenders and beat the shit out of my pinch seam to get my tires to clear (with 75% tread tires).

if you want an honest opinion from another zj owner/lover, i am not feelin it. something about the wheel/tire choices and trying to fit a tire that's way too big for the lift/wheel wells just doesn't look good to me

I like it. it needs more lift for the 35's but it's a start. Keep it up. it will get there.
