The front opening is significantly larger. Look behind the front wheel. There is no way a 33" tire on a 4" lift would have that much clearance. There is about 1-2" of added clearance back there with about 1" up top. The rears are hard to see, but I'm gonna guess the added clearance is gonna be about the same. I'm running a 4.5" lift with front adjustables and pushed them way out to run 33" and I still don't have as much clearance as the bushwacker WJ does. My guess is that with the bushwacker flares, 4.5" lift, tag bumpers, and proper length bumstops I should be able to at least run a 305/70/17=33.5"-34" tire and possibly even a 315/70/17=34.5" tire, because right now I'm on 285/70/17=33" tire and don't have the flares and I don't rub anywhere.

is it just me, or does the opening not look any larger than stock?
Hey, you stole that from my thread lol. Guess I forgot there was already a thread on it haha.
Looked good in person. Very strong with some fender trimming. Not as much trimming as on my WJ but enough the average Joe should feel comfortable trimming.
