it's not too big but with the offset and the back spacing of the Rims , when I turn the steering wheel , I am at 1/3 inch of the inner of the fender or of the bumper ,

do you think that it's look too little ?

Looks good to me. What are those tires in the picture? Get a picture of the whole side of the jeep with the tires on front and back.

Looks good to me. With the backspaing it makes them look bigger than they are. But I bet with that tire size you don't need a regear and you'll get good mpg's.(I'm not sure if talks fuel is by litters. If it is I guess it would be mpl's)
