Ok, as the post says I’m wanting to put a 1-1.5 lift on my Rubicon and run 37’s. Is that even possible? I have 35x12.50 R18 with a -12 offset wheels now. I do off road and haven’t had any rubbing. Not too extreme, but do plan on going more and more. Elite you ask, I have Fox 2.5 DSC shocks on the Jeep now and they are good to 1.5 lift. That’s my reasoning behind not going higher. So, can it be done without rubbing? I’m. It opposed to adding AAL inner fenders if that will make a difference. Thanks for the help.

From what I can tell, all the aftermarket inner fenders actually have a tad less total clearance than the stock plastic ones. To run 37's, you need to add about an inch or more to the bump stop (limit up-travel).

I currently run OEDRO fender flares (https://www.oedro.com/4pcs-oedro-te...der-flares-fit-for-2018-2019-jeep-wrangler-jl) and Rough Country front and rear wheel well liners with 35's. Under hard bottoming, the 35's contact the rear well liners slightly. I just ordered a set of Paramount fender liners https://www.quadratec.com/p/paramount-automotive/front-rear-inner-fender-kit-wrangler-jl that mimic the stock liners, yet are made for aftermarket flares (thanks to thrasher949 and his "Ds in a Bikini" thread). If I am correct, this combo should fit 37's with zero lift and stock bump stops with barely any contact. My hope is I can trim a little to fit 38's.
