I'm putting 37x12.50r17 mtrk's on with trimmed factory flares. I would like to see 37s with minimal lift

Here is my 2011 with 37x12.50.17's. It is lifted 4.5" with an AEV lift. Rides great with no rubbing at all. It is a Rubicon, so it has good power with the gearing. Not sure how she does yet offroad. Looking forward to trying that in the next few weeks.

3.5. I wouldn't go lower. Sometimes I wish I would have gone 4.5+.

Here is a buddy's rig on 37's with MCE fenders and 1.5" Spring Leveling Kit and bump stops. I believe he also 'massaged' some pinch welds on the back end. I hope that helps.
Specs:
Front Axle: D30, sleeved and gusseted, ARB Air Locker
Rear Axle: D44, ARB Air Locker
Suspension: Teraflex Performance Leveling Kit
Tires: 3712.150R17 BFG All-Terrain
Wheels: AEV Beadlock

That usually means a big hammer and touch up paint.

I will make a call and see if he can send me that info. At lunch maybe I will have it and can post it up for you.

I might also mention this JK has been wheeled hard here in the PNW and Moab. He put some thought and effort in before stabbing 37's underneath.

rubiprime- From the owner: Just used a grinder on the front of the rear pinch seem. There was less material on the 14 than the 12, jeep opened up the wheel wells on the later models.
