flat fendering tire size

I have a 2000 Sport with a 2 in BB and i was wondering if i make the front flat fendered would i be able to fit say a 33 in tire, or would the rear still have problems. I am on a very tight budget (0$) so doing the body lift is out. Has anybody flat fendered their wrangler with little or no lift I've been wondering what it would look like

Do a search this topic has been covered w/pictures to give you some ideas. Check in the jeep registry section or the photo requested section you may find what your looking for. You might be able to get by on the BB and 33...again you can search that BB and 33 as I am sure its covered, you may get some fender/tire contact by going this route though.

So you dont have the money for a 1" body lift, where are you going to pick up 33" tires?

friend up here has 2" BB 1" BL and runs 35" MTR's (he's measured them at 33-34" OD) and has a really great amount of flex, mostly downtravel.

I was lead to believe that Flat Fendering doesnt give you any better tire clearance...No?

if you're hitting your flares now, then you will get tire clearance by flat fendering...

I guess it all really depends on what you are willing to hack right?

I am going a similar route... I have the 2.5"ome(not on yet) When it goes on I will add a body lift (most likely 1.25") and run 33"s for a while. But soon, when I am compatent and feel I have studied up enough I plan to start hacking away at my rig... Front and back... After adding some re-enforcement and changing my rear end, I should be able to shove some 34's in there with totally minimal lift and a really low cog..correct me if I'm wrong.

I had 31x10.50 in this pic, I now have 33x12.50s and they rub at full stuff when the jeep is all twisted up with opposite corners stuffed. I have a 2" BB with 1"BL and 1" MML

The above post is my opinion and I have no facts to prove it... :)~

It depends on whether or not you take into consideration the flare, and if you are going to be using some sort of tube. If you remove or trim the flare, you will gain an 1", enough for a larger tire size. If you use some sort of tube fender (the exception being TnT's) the tube hangs below the fender and you will gain no clearance.

The best flat fender I have seen is on JU where someone cut the fender, then cut 2" off the hood, and made his tube fender there. Looked like enough room to go up 2 tire sizes (YMMV).

several Months ago, Jp magazine had an article or rather several articles on it. They put 35s with no lift, Granted they used a new hood and Cut the rear way out, i think it can be done

You are thinking about the hood from Campbell Enterprises. You remove the fenders, and the flares are built into the hood. You also have to fab up a way to relocate everything that sits on the fenders. A member of my club had one, I thought it was ugly.
