Is it possible to drive, not off road, without rubbing until my lift is delivered and installed? They'll be installed on the stock wheels.

Yep, doing it right now on 12.5s no spacers ... thinking 13.5s would likely be a bit more problematic. Every now and then if I turn full right might get a front tire rub or if I turn fast into an entrance with a decent elevation change vs the road I might get some rub on the rear inner fenders. About to swap out for Artec rear inners so that should go away. Will caveat the front by saying I had installed Artec front inners before the 37s so may be some advantage there.

I've been doing it for a month on 37x13.5r17s. No lift and no rubbing on-road.

Off road, you will definitely rub - but on road it has been fine for me. Mix of city/suburban/highway driving and truly no issues to report.

Ok really appreciate it. The wife said no 37s or lift until she gets her Jeep. But I just sold my 33s so was hoping I could just run the 37s for a little bit so I'm not in the doghouse too much
