Did you need wheel spacers for this set up? I know my JLU Sport with a 2.5 inch Rubicon Express lift had rear sway bar clearance issues due to backspacing.

fuel Nitro 5 on 35x12.50 Ironman All Country M/T with no rub. Will still be installing an AEV 2.5" Tuesday but couldn't wait to get those silver stockers off.

May be a dumb question - but would tubular fenders give you the additional clearance with 35s on a sport, to not require a lift?

I eventually want to get a lift but really need to get rid of these stock rims and don't want to buy 33s temporarily.

Higher lift fenders help out on articulation clearance but not on suspension clearance like lock-to-lock steering interference. Wheel spacers or properly back spaced wheels for that.

Are you still on this setup? Any regrets? What gears you running?
Same tires and lift. I changed out the drag link, tie rod, and track bar to synergy. I was getting pretty bad death wobble. I’m not a big fan of synergy’s pinch bolts but I don’t have death wobble anymore. Synergy has a pretty loud “knock” which apparently is “normal”. I got the dealership to replace my steering gear box too. Steering is solid now. I love the tires and would buy again. I still like my wheels but they are a pain to clean. No gear changes.

It does pretty good, I’ve taken it to River Rock ORV in Milledgeville, GA and it does alright.
