So the plan is to fit 35" on my 92 YJ. Its got an add a leaf lift on it already. I've got TJ flares and I don't mind trimming. So my question is how much will I have to trim? Or should I say cut out? My last YJ I had SOA up front with stock springs and shackles. The rear was 2.5" RE springs with 1" longer shackles I think. I also had TJ flares in the back but I was able to fit 35".
you can highline the front fenders without buying any kits, ive read tons of writeups on it on JF. good luck on fitting 35s, im interested in seeing what you end up doing, as ill be attempting something similar but smaller
I recently went to 35s. 4" lift using the bumpstops that came with the kit. I don't seem to have a problem with the front. Its the back, the fender well is trimmed to within 1/2" of underlying structure and it still is not 35" wide. I can run the opposite rear tire up a ramp and push the other into the fender till it touches and it is just on the bumpstops. Should have went with 33s. I am considering a 1" body lift, thoughts?
Thanks for all the input! I am either going DIY highline or start saving for Metalcloak fenders front and just alot of cutting in the back. NHfireYJ are you on exploringNH? I think I've seen your user name before. At the moment I do not have a body lift but was thinking of maybe a 1".
I have 2.5" leafs with 1" body, and flat fendered the front. Rear TJ flares open up the rear quite a bit ... However you will probably need to do more with just AAL's. Also stock TJ flares don't cover the tire completely.
One point often overlooked on the front fenders is the bottom corner where the rocker line meets the wheel opening. 35's get very close to this point on anything less than too-much-lift. This is why when I cut my front fenders I specifically went to where the front fenders meet the tub. You can see what I mean here:
Same lift, same setup, stock front fender opening. You can see how close the fender is to the tire. Almost no up travel, and zero up travel with the wheel turned.
