Very Nice! I am considering Clayton 5" stretch on 35"s do you have any details on what you did with your wheel opening? Did you have any issues with it on the 37"S that I would on 35"s Thanks Tim

I did a very basic trim of the wheel well opening, and moved the fender flares back accordingly. I did have to notch the driver flare for the gas filler. I will try to get pics within the next few days.

I don't see why you would have any issues with 35's.

What size springs do you have on your Jeep. With the 37's did you have any problems dragging the arms on rocks. I am interested in doing the stretch and Clayton but I want to run my Rubicon 44's and 35's to keep them alive

Those 37's look like km2 right those are kind of small 37's and a good comparison for my 35's

I'm running RE 5.5" springs. No problem with arms dragging with 37's.

Before the holidays you mentioned to me that you had to fab some tabs to mount the Crawler Comp Tank with the Clayton stretch. Were you able to take some pics and measurements yet?

I was trying to figure out why new tabs would be needed when you outboard the shocks. Did you have to cut the crossmember to fit the 60?


My Comp tank is sitting on the floor in my garage

It's been a while, but I think the original tabs are located where the frame is notched for the shocks. So I added an inch or 2 so the tab mounts just forward of the notch. I'll try to get pics and measurements sooner than later. Sorry it's been so long!

No worries. We will have to take a run soon so I can crawl under your rig and take a look. I got parts stacking up

This is a shot of the lengthened tab. You can see the hole for he original bolt location.


This is where I relocated the new bolt to.
