Still messed up. Anyone know what that high pitch chirp (cricket like noise) is in the video?

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.
This 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.

I believe this is more of a rubicon fenders/factory lift vs normal fenders/lift thing

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.

Sports and Saharas can run 35s stock, but the first bit of articulation you encounter will result in rubbing or worse, tearing a fender flare off.

Rubicons, including diesel Rubicons, have high-top flares which allow for greater clearance and sit a couple of inches taller than Sports and Saharas from the factory....hence why many people on a budget opt to buy a gently used Rubicon suspension set-up for their Sport or Sahara.

I’m not sure if this has been posted yet, but I just noticed it. Is this a recent revision to the Mopar lift install guide, or has this always been there? I’m dumbfounded that the instructions actually show the springs bowing and say it’s supposed to do this.

“Properly installed springs will bow outwards”
