5'' lift with 33'' tires....the size tire you have you would prolly need atleast 7 to 8 inches of lift without runnin into "rubbing" problems...i have done just fine with 33's but would eventually like to run 36's or 38's on an 8'' lift

Yeah I've cut a lot of the fender but I'm gonna cut as much as I can and then lift it a little as I can get away with to keep a low center of gravity

You don't need 7-8" for 35's. look at hardcorexj's build he has 35's and a 3.5" longarm. A few others to look at are Motorcharge's its on 35's with a 2" lift iirc, ibejeepin95 has 3" lift and 35's. I am running 33's on a 3.5" lift also its all about trimming , bump stopping , shock lengths.

Below are pics of hardcore xj's and mine

The white one is hardcore xj's and black is mine.

Looking at the pics of your Xj since you have a pre 97 cut the lower portion of the front fender off so it's flush with the bottom is the header panel , I've always trimmed he wheel opening on the fender so it opened up as big as the outside of the flare when it was attached and beat the inner fender seam flat and do the cut and fold on the rear wells

Never heard of bump stops. I'm assuming by the name it stops the suspension from flexing as much. I'm not much of a rock Crawler myself. Always been in mud. Lol btw nice Jeeps y'all got there.

What do y'all use to trim the fenders so cleanly?
