That would be great. I guess I'll start looking at the pinch weld worst case.

Looks great! Thanks. It does look pretty tight near the pinch weld, but glad no rubbing for you.

So you have the fronts set to 1.5" on the 5100s and some Bilsteins HDs in the rear and nothing else?

Yes paro, those are the only suspension changes.

I thought I heard a slight rub at one point, but minor. I think my wheel well lining may be a bit loose. I had 265 70 17 Cooper ATP s test fit, but they were rubbing pretty good.

265 70 17 Cooper ATPs were slightly too big.

interesting. very interesting to see this. im sure you could easily fit a 32 on there with a slight massage of the pinch weld in the front and it would look great.

do you have any measurements from the center of the hub to the fender front and rear?

I'm away from my jeep for a week, but could do some measurements when I get back. With a pinch weld mod, the 265 70 17 WOULD FIT JUST fine. Id like to do it eventually, but am happy with current setup.

Thanks for posting the pix marcram, I've been looking to get the same setup as yours. So 5100's front/ 4600 for the rear. Can you get 5100 for the rear too? Sorry I'm still learning about the b-steins.

yes you can. however the 4600s in the rear give you a bit of a boost due to their higher compression- the 5100s are better if you go 2"+ as they provide more down travel

I'm interested to see what others do. Setting front to 2" may also be worth considering. Front and back Wheel well spacing is pretty much identical, but still slight rake. I personally like it, but another .5 inch wouldn't be bad either.

Thanks, I'm not planning on getting any major lift so I suppose these 4600s in the rear would suit me. Whatever extra lift the suspension gives me will be quite alright as I'm looking to get the 255's too.
