Hi Guys,

When I was considering making this leap, there wasn't a lot of info out there on if this could work, so I thought I'd share my results. See the attached pics, but I'm running Falken AT3s at 315/70/17 on a totally stock JLU Sport. Tiny bit of rubbing during turns that make the Jeep lean hard in one direction or the other, and this appears to be from some of the plastic lining in the wheel well from the fenders.

Planning on upgrading to Rubicon Fenders, adding Wheel Spacers next week and going to try a Rubicon Suspension first before going small lift if I'm not happy with it.

Dragged them them into the post which seemed to work on my end. Are there instructions for adding photos?

Damn! I mean, no offense but if you're going that big, you need some sort of lift. At least a BB lift. It looks like Rosie O'Donnell had a Jeep baby with cankles....

Added a Rubi suspension and no more rubbing. Will probably add Rubi fenders and perhaps a BB. Got about 1-1.5" lift from the Rubi suspension.
