Will stock JK Rubicons fit on an Overland?

Will JK Rubicon Moabs fit on a 2003 WJ Overland? I thought the Overland came with taller springs from the factory and am wondering if they provide enough clearance to fit the larger tires (255/75/17 I believe).

up-country springs were only used in '02 IIRC. even so.....32's wont fit without a lift or serious cutting of metal

Okay thanks. I guess I was confusing the up-country and the overland.

Wheels will fit, tires will not. Even with up country you'll be doing well to fit 30" without rub. You will need some very long springs to fit 32".

At stock height ('04 Laredo) those tires would rub, but not terribly. I have the Moabs with the 255/75/17 Goodyear SRAs on them. They mostly rubbed the front inner fender when turning. With OME HD springs and 10mm spacers I have only had slight rubbing on the rear shock when off road.

They will fill up the wheel well at stock height which will limit up travel a lot, but normal highway driving isn't too bad. But they are great (I think) at 3.5" of lift.

I'd like to see pics of 32s on a stock Wj. I tried to fit 33s on mine just for ****s and giggles, and even with a 2" lift they wouldn't fit in the wheel well.

I should have taken a pic! But I only had them on for the day to see if they'd fit. I didn't want rubbing at all while driving on the street, so took them off. But have them on now that I have my lift installed.

I haven't run them disconnected yet and I expect a fair amount of rubbing then. But off road while connected, I had minimal issues.

These are on a 3" IRO kit I got from Black04WJ. No rubbing anywhere

They'll fit fine unless you want to turn or go over a bump.

If it's easy to get to it's probably not worth seeing.

Even with a 3.5-4" lift, most tires that size will require a little trimming, and that's just for regular daily driving. Especially if it's an aggressive tires, like the BFG Mud Terrains that come on some JK's. I have JK wheels with 265/70/17 Goodyear Duratracs, which are pretty aggressive, but a little less aggressive than BFG Mud's and a little smaller, too, and without trimming, they bite the **** of the lower inside lip of the front bumper. I'm an 3.5"+ lift. A less aggressive tire will usually be more forgiving, but on the other hand, all makes of tire vary in size. A 255/75/17 from one brand might only be 31.8" and another brand could be as much as 32.5". So that depends as well.

Regardless, you need a lift to run that size, and will most likely need some trimming. You would need full on fender trimming to fit them on a stock vehicle, and even if you trimmed as much as possible, you would still rub when the suspension flexed (unless you got bump stop extensions that limited up-travel to maybe an inch lol).
