His front fenders. See how much higher they are compared to a stock TJ? The rears are probably cut out to match.

Julietkilo, I love my jk axles. Now that the 37's are on, we'll see if I can break em. Lol I've got 3.5" of bs now with the tr's. That's 2.5" wider than a stock jk rubi, and the pitbulls stick out even more still. Im gone right now, out of state for military crap, so i dont remember the actual width measurement but I can get it later. I know only about 1.5" of my shoulder lugs on the tires are actually inside the rear wheel well. If you would like to see my build, it's here in the jeep builds section.

Using properly manufactured wheel spacers correctly is no different than running less backspacing. That's straight from a very popular beadlock manufacturer when I was doing research because I couldn't find a backspacing that I cared for. Take that for whatever, but I'll take their word.

^^^Very nice job. I'd say some rocker guards that span wheel well to wheel well and it will look perfect.

i believe that is an old jeepforum tale, heard that on this forum 7 years ago and i have never had any ball joint issues on my jeeps with them. all 3 of them. I have replaced ball joints a few times within a year but they were china made and not a spicer part.

you're running them to allow you to keep your stock wheels, just as far out as my 4" BS... i was referring about using them simply to gain track width, and going wider does add strain, it's simple physics of leverage and weight distribution.

With strong enough parts it doesn't matter.
