Wheeling with 2" lift

I have 2" coil spacers for my zj that I haven't put on yet and ill be getting 31s soon. It's my daily driver but i would like to take it in the mud every once in a while. Will I be okay if I don't trim? Or will it be really bad to wheel? Is there anything I can do besides trimming?

I have a 2" spacer and run 31's... the only trimming i had to do was a 1in piece of extra plastic in the fender well(took two minutes).

How often do you wheel it?

I wheeled mine a ton with a BB and 31s. If it's you daily driver you just have to be a bit more careful and pick your lines and make use of a spotter.

I wheel on 31's and have been everywhere that all my buddies have been able to get to. It makes it more interesting and gives you **** talking rights when you cruise up the same line as some dude with bigger tires. As stated just pick good lines and pay attention and go have some fun yo!

2 inches and 31"s right now, I added longer bumpstops. I basically just flexed it out, then marked what got in the way and hammered everything out. Still need another inch of bumpstop though, I rub the fenders bad at full lock + full flex. (Theres a term for that but i forget.)

95 FiveTwo ZJ, DD, Lifted, Locked on 35s, Build (in progress)

My 5.9 swap (in progress)

Want your zj to be doorless in 60 seconds?

Well it's good to know how the tires do too lol. And with 4.5" you still need to trim?

I trimmed a bit off the bottom of the front bumper and hammered the pinch seam in the wheel well flat. No issues with it then, even flexing it out fully on an RTI ramp. The rears actually tucked in almost perfectly.

I'll put up some pictures tonight.

You can pretty much put any size tire into the fenders or bumper at any height if you try. The key is proper bumpstops for the lift height.
