Anyone running on 37’s yet? If so, what adjustments do you need to make? Currently have 35’s but I’m highly considering taking the jump to 37’s on my lifted Rubicon

I saw a video of a guy who had 37's with the Mopar 2" lift, which in my opinion was rubbing excessively at full flex and not acceptable. I am looking at 37's myself... I was thinking a 3.5" lift should be sufficient with Rubicon high fenders. But there aren't any out yet for the JL... biggest lift I've seen available is the EVO 2.5" (which is an icky spacer lift), which isn't enough for 37's. Going to take a little longer for the kits with the geometry correction for the bigger lifts (with the adjustable arms and trackbars)

Please keep us updated.

Curious on the look you’re going for after the 20’s you had on it already.

Are you going to powder coat the Methods?

Kind of rushed into it when I bought the first set of wheels. I prefer smaller rim and bigger tire. Gonna keep the methods black for now, will post when finished

I feel like 2.5 will be enough since I had 35s on stock and they were fine. Adding 2 inch in tire and 2.5 inch lift , will make it half an inch better than I was originally, unless I’m missing something

I am talking clearing 37s, full flex, disconnected, & no rub. I could put 38s on mine right now and easily clear them

I’m putting 37 BFG KO2’s on Monday. They are a smaller 37, closer to a 36 to be honest. I plan on modifying my fenders, removing the LEDs, so I think it will be fine.

Mel at EVO mfg has had 37s on now for a couple weeks.

He picked up his JL in MI, stopped in at our Denver, CO location where we did a test fit of EVO's spacer kit and their King shock kit, from there he headed down to Moab, UT and did a little real-world testing before finally heading back home to Cali.
