TJ with metalcloak fenders and 2 or 3.5 inch lift

I just ordered metalcloak fenders front and rear for my 05 and am looking into a 2 or 3.5 inch lift in the next month before installing 35's on my Jeep. I was curious if anyone had pictures of a similar setup (metalcloak fenders, 35's, and 2 or 3.5 inch lift) on a TJ or LJ

Give me a week or so and I'll have pictures of my LJ with MetalCloaks and 33s. I have the MetalCloaks on right now, the lift is on order.

Edit to add: That will be with a 2.5" OME lift.

That is my plan for the future, but for the time being I am riding on no lift and 33s.

I much prefer the metalcloaks with some distance between them and the tires. No lift or very little lift just doesn't work me. Guess I'm just not a LCOG guy.

Well it doesn't look exactly like that now. I am making a few changes that will hopfully be done by the end of the year. My build thread is Moab or bust if you are interested. I have been working with Matson on making a custom set of rear fenders. Who knows if he likes how they turn out maybe they will offer them.

I've got the Metalcloak 3.5" springs in the rear and coilovers in the front, set to match


I'm guessing with the springs that I got more like 4" though.

I'll play, despite the age of the thread.

Don't have my rear flares or rockers on yet but this is Currie 3"/1" BL and overlines with 35" MTRs:

I have 3" zone and 1 1/2" body lift. If you are planning a tummy tuck in the future I'd say go with a body lift and 2" suspension. My 35's look small and I'm already planning for 37's now. I have pretty good up travel too and no contact. I tried to attach pictures but I guess they are to big...
