LJ's on 37's or Larger
 
3 Attachment(s)
Thinking about regearing and running 37's or larger on my '05 Rubicon LJ. I found and absolutely love this set up. It's a AEV high line fender with a 4" lift running...37's of course. Looking for other ideas and options ie...tube fenders,flat fenders,NO fenders! 37's or larger! PLeaSE :D
Here is my current set up. 4.5" RE SF on 315 "Moab's"

Right on! Thanks for responding, awesome Jeep's. :2thumbsup: I've thought about tube fenders and I do like them. My only reservation is my LJ is still my daily driver. I guess it could still work but PLEASE keep the pic's and ideas coming. THANK YOU!

One question: in this pic, the grill appears to be almost completely blocked by the winch. Does anyone know if this causes any temperature issues?

It is a great looking jeep! :thumbsup:

Good call, I did notice it. The winch is blocking the grill completely is right. The AEV hood ruduces heat but it's not the same as the air flowing through the front grill! I'd question the temperature issues myself. The last TJ with the Highline fenders appears to have a better set up in the front. A "stubby" with a winch that is better integrated.
I wheel with a trail buddy Saturday. His setup was perfect. He had a winch on a plate that he'd attach to a hitch. In front OR in back! He removed and placed it according to his need. To me, that makes a lot of sense.

Here is another pic I'll share, For anyone else who is intersted or contemplating this setup. Now not everyone is a fan, but again I like a close to stock look just beefier. This is my trail rig and my daily driver. So suspension, tires and a FEW accessories is fine for me. My stock '05 Rubicon has handled what I'll drive so I'm careful not change too much.
The AEV Highline kit does limit a few things. Consider once installed the fenders flares can NOT be changed out for other aftermarket flares.
I'm not sure who owns this. It looks like maybe there's a body lift maybe? It's still nice. (I'm not a fan of body lift's)

^ RK long arm on RE 4.5" coils with 1" BL. On 37" mtr's.

Picture was taken by me, it's a friend. He still wishes he went with highline tubes. Also, if your thinking about going OVER 37's, the rubicon 44's won't cut it...

I don't have a LJ but just a TJ but I can offer this. A buddy of mine has been doing a lot of AEV conversions and for the money and the hassle that is involved it just dose not seem like you gain that much over tube fenders and we have done both. Since your LJ is already lifited I would stay away from the AEV and go with tube fenders and crusher corners (got mine for around 1335.00 shipped but for an LJ they will be a little more for the rears and they were direct bolt on with inner fenders on the front and battery tray from TnT customs/Go Treks only had to drill holes to mount up the rears) with the proper tire coverage if that is what is required by the laws of your state and since it is your DD. Plus they in my opinion give more room for tire flex and less metal hanging down than the factory or the AEV ones. The plus side of this also is if you do a lot of off roading the tubes will stand a lot more abuse than the AEV flares up against a tree or a rock. Most people go with the AEV stuff to gain lift before adding one and also for the looks and if that is your thing by all means I am not trying to talk you out of anything because life is to short to go thru it unhappy.If I had the money to do it all over again I would have found an LJ just did not have the cash in 04 when I was used Jeep shopping because in my opinion they are the best looking rigs with a lift on them no matter what you do to them bar none. Good luck on your build:thumbsup:

I love everything about the AEV Highline except the rear fender flares, they just seep a little large to me. I like that last picture with the rear tube fender set up though.

I want do do it but just cant bring my self to bite the bullet.

You ALL rock! These are some bad *** Jeeps is right! I should stick to 37's no larger for my "daily driver" Swapping out axles and stuff takes my project budget to another level :confused: If you can't tell, I lean towards the AEV fenders as my choice. However, This pic of the 40's with a 4" lift on the LJ with tube fenders stops me in my tracks! Whoa Mama! If I map it out right, I'd like to think down the road I can maybe go larger than 37's. IF I'm in a situation to swap out my D44's and I stay in the right direction, Hopefully I won't have to change much. Here is another pic. It's part of my influence for this type of setup. Oh and I found a few more LJ's with tube fenders that I like. I'll post them here soon. Everyone Thanks, When I start my project I'll do a build thread. Enjoy :cheers2:
