it's not just what size tire can I fit, but what you have for gears that matters.

Should be able to fit w/ flat fenders and the 5" of lift. Probably need to do some trimming in the rear though. Like the others above said, I'd worry about the gears before throwing that much rubber under it.

Is your current set up stopping you from going places? Bigger tires equals more stress equals more crap broke. And a higher CG. Just something to consider.

Unless you've got a rare Canadian YJ, or it's already upgraded, the Dana 35 may not last wrapped in 37s, and that's assuming it's in good shape. Flat fenders and lift kits will be just the beginning. Fit is the easy part.

I have 35s with my RE 4.5 XD and flat fenders, but I have to do some trimming because I rub bad at full stuff. And that's with a 2" BL too.

the only limit is your wallet......and common sense. Axles, gears, drivetrain WILL be needed when you cross certain threshholds. You can "fit" about anything, but that is the least of your concerns.

your profile says stock axles you should not run that big of a tire with your stock gears.

What gears then, with stick axles on 37s?

I recently bought my yj. I'm assuming it has stock axles and gears. I run 55 at 1800 rpm in 4th. I'm new to jeep world so I am very curious.

Thanks
Brandon
