I'm running 37x12.50 Nitto's. I think the BFG 39" KM3's would look really good on it.

That's why I went with their inner fenders. They are currently the only ones on the market that I know of that have the quick release feature. They are really nice.

Yeah I know a lot of people with 38s and stock gears with the automatic. I went 5.13 because I wanted a little better crawl speed. I don't drive fast (about 70 mph) so They work great for me. You'll get 8th gear back going to the 4.88s so you should gain a little better MPG, but none of us care about that obviously.
Thanks for the reply. After talking to some folks about it, I'm gonna regear. My next quest is to get past this little bit of rubbing I'm having when I climb. I have three points of contact. I don't know if I want to add one more .5" strike pad or bumpstop spacer to stop me from getting into the inner fender or if I need to add a 1/2 inch coil spacer to lift it . I just need it in the rear, but not sure because the lift is perfectly aligned and balanced. I don't want to mess up the caster. I might just deal with the rub. Anyone have any advice.

I really wanted a set of the 39" BFG KM3's but they are 10+ weeks out.

How do you like them?
I had 39” Krawlers and was going the KM3 route but didn’t want that crazy wait so I got 40” Mickey Baja Boss instead.

I believe you would add a little more bump stop. Adding extra spring height won't help if you're rubbing when compressing. Also unless you added cam adjusters with a lift you have the only thing you can adjust for alignment is tow not camber. Also I know people who were rubbing with 4.5" wheel backspacing and 3.5" fixed rubbing.

Ok. Thanks for that. I'm going to try the bumpstop extension. I'm not changing my wheels and I don't want to add a wheel spacer because they are 38x13.50 so they stick out already. I'm set up to regear the next time I'm off. I went with 4.88.

Do your tires rub offroad with 4.75 backspaced Methods?
No. Take off your bumper ends and set your bumpstops correctly.

I am thinking about doing the fender delete with the American venture. But I don't know if i'll have too much wheel well because i'm running 37 13.50 tires. Here's a picture of my 37 1350 Cooper SST pro. If I do the fender delete do you think i'll have too much will well I have the 2-inch Mopar lift which is actually 3 inchs I just think it's going to be too much wheel well what do you think

I had 37‘s on when I added my fender delete on a 3 1/2 inch metal cloak. Not sure how that measures up to the Mopar lift but I definitely need to go to 38’s. The 37‘s looked good but I felt it just needed a little more.
