Tires in the rear dont fit???

ok so this might be stupid but I always hear of people trimming the front bumper (which I have done) but what about the rear? I am running 3" lift with 32's. I am trimmed up great up front but every time I take the jeep off road the rear rubs. If I cut the rear bumper back it seems like it would be to flimsy and flopping in the wind on the highway.

Put a 1-2" coil spacer in the rear. Thats what I would do.

Extended bumpstops will keep the tires out of the rear fenders and bumper.

it seems to rub at the bottom/mid fender opening. not at the top. and wouldn't extended bump stops take away some of the flex defeating the purpose of the lift

Your fenders are taking away the flex right now...

More lift, or wheels with less backspacing, or wheel spacers, or smaller tires, or fender flares.

Arlo has a writeup for trimming the rear somewhere... I'll find it!

Down travel is more important than up travel when you're crawling.

Arlo's: with body damage so there's a bunch of steps you wouldn't need.

and TJSWJs: kinda more of what you need. As noted, the bumper clips hold it in place just fine. No flapping!
