This is not true.I ran with the 35s and no lift for a few weeks. It’s fine, but the suspension could be better with the larger unsprung mass, and it will rub off road.
I believe this is more of a rubicon fenders/factory lift vs normal fenders/lift thingThis is not true.
We have a 2021 JLURD with 22,000 miles (springs are “settled“) bone stock suspension with 35’s. We just got back from Moab where we flexed it all the way out many times and there is absolutely no rubbing.
I post this for anyone reading who has a diesel and wants to install 35’s and is mislead by your statement. They will clear fine.
For the record we have BFG K03 tires.
Bingo! I ran my Sport without a lift and my 35s for a week or so....looked BEEFY but it was darn close to rubbing even on road and it was far from ideal.I believe this is more of a rubicon fenders/factory lift vs normal fenders/lift thing
