Do you have all adjustable control arms?

They will rub the front bumper cover and will hit the fenders if not properly bumpstopped.

the whambulance is what you call when your crying like wah wahhh cause i dont have adjustables. so think id be better off just getting 32s than? and calling it a day and saving up for some SA adjustables or LAs? right now im on 265/75/16 Dueller M/Ts...no rubbing what so ever.

got 4" 32s had to trim a LOT! on front fender and bumper

rear one close ! doing 4wheeling it'll RUB LIKE MOTHER!

so I'm just waiting untill I figure something as the fender flares so I can cut the $%$% out of it.

5" and 32's maybe good idea .

I rather have 33s tho:-( but sticking with 32s for now untill engine swap / axles swap

33s and 4 inches of lift rubs front and rear uncut.

First I cut the front, and had adjustable lower arms. Got them to not rub.

Then cut the rear with no bumpstops and it rubs the top of the inner fender.

Anything 33s or bigger you should probably plan to cut on a Wj.

OP; buy the 33's, cut the sheet metal and then worry about adjustable arms.
