I've got painful fender evidence to say differently. Point your zj downhill with front suspension holding the weight and you'll have contact. Run around the street and never disco the front and you're right, no contact.

Again bump stops and proper back spacing. I'm not saying it's easy but if you plan correctly it can be done.

I understand from short arms and 35s. Most, read, 95%, won't use bump stops properly or spring post extensions. Let's see his pics of how it looks.

No to discredit anyone
This is for the rear though
But I can flex with my 32s on 3" of lift. The tires are 32x11.5 bfgs. My wheels are 15x7 and a 3.75" backspacing. Because the wheels are 7" wide, the tires just barely tuck under the fender lips in the rear. I haven't disco'd though so I can't say about the front

I heard someone yell "mall crawler" from the back porch. I'll go see who said that. Be right back.

i'd get the STT's in 32". Great tire in any condition and easy on the pocket book.

I live on long island, there's extremely few places to wheel and all the good trails are illegal. Its either smiths point beach, which barely exists after the hurricane or small trails with obstacles most stock vehicles could probably handle and a couple mud pits.
The only nice trails to go would be raushe or places upstate. Neither I can afford to plan a trip to
