Let's see - what did I do today?

Drove her to and from work, put $42.35 into the tank and discovered that it already HAD a budget lift on it (I guess that's why the 31's fit without rubbing!) when I crawled under it for no other good reason than crawling under it to take a look - I've only had it a couple of weeks -

I filled her up, I got 13.6mpg on this tank, so slight improvement! Took her out for some night wheeling with my buddy in his jacked up f150 and met up with another guy in a close-to-stock ZJ... It was a little muddier than I expected it to be but I have to say my ZJ held up pretty damn good. It's the most I've put her thru yet and it's the most there is around here and she went wherever I pointed her

My 31s rubbed with the wheels turned until I trimmed my bumper cover at 4" of lift. They hit my disco retainers on my front skid when I'm flexing.

For the folks saying the can fit 31's with no lift, you have one nice parking lot wheeler. No way that works off road disconnected.

Can you post pics of where these washers go? That's something I may do to alleviate the problem with them hitting the disco retainers. I'll probably do that in conjunction with extending my bump stops.

I'm running rough country's older style 4 inch lift its a few years old now and has sagged a bit and I'm running 33 13.50r 15s on 8 inch wide eagle alloys rear sway bar delete and jks front discos and they don't rub at all unless fully flexed which most jeeps rub at full flex lol. should look even better when I get 2 more inches under it.

Yea there is always that option. I have seen all these noobs on here talking about fitting 32's on their stock ZJ's without banging and cutting and saying they fit "just fine". Perhaps they should specify "street use only".
