I assume you will be making your own rocker guards, when you do will you be compensating for the gaps that raising the fenders left?

yeah, the spider tubes would look awesome.
I have started on rocker gaurds to cover the gap and protect the flare from snaging. snaging was a big problem for me before they were raised.

so far, I've hacked up some 1.5x3" 3/16" tube for the rocker duty. they'll be secured by the body bolts and the tub below the doors. haven't had the time to finish em yet.
it'll look kinda like the cj-7 trim bar, only larger and it wont ding.

something else I've thought of doing is build a bolt on steel fender gaurd/tube flares for the front to retain the stock turn signals, then the front of the stock fender could be hacked off and the gaurd would fit the higher grill contour, it would take a good hit to bend it unlike the stock fenders that wrinkle at the site of an oncoming tree.

I am very interested in seeing both of these. as far as the fenders go, you should fab up a front grill hoop/tube fenders tied into each other, this would be sweet, you would have some killer strength then.

I like the idea of rocker guards that are similar to the ww2ww rockers, but have some steel to fill in the gap between the rocker and the fender to make it solid, so i wouldnt risk the chance of bending it or getting hung up on something (and to make it aesthetically pleasing) I don't have the fab skills to do this, but let me tell you, in my head it looks awesome

crawling this thread, looking forward to more updates

yeah, ya could run 38's with some more bumpstop up front and rear, provided ya currently have 2" over stock stops or a body lift, not exactly sure of what backspacing would be needed, I know with 37's and 15x8-3.5"bs they touch the shock tower fully stuffed and slightly rub the factory sway bar while turning. 2" bumpstops work great for 37's.
another thing, the evap can needs to be relocated for 37 and larger, I didn't move it, I put in an extra inch bumpstop to keep the tire from rubbing the bottom of it. if I had more time it would have been relocated to the underbody or separated from the char filter.

IMO 37's are all about all ya wanna run on the jeep axles, reasons being gearing and durability, I put 5.13's in the gold rubi to run with the 5sp, it seems to be a good combo.. at least the guy likes how it performs. I'm having a hard time resiting the notion of 39.5's actually, If i did the performance and driveability would stink.

couple more pics on 3.5" and 37" mtr's

Hell mines a '98.... I LOVE "reasons" to upgrade. I just turned 60,000 miles so I guess its still new enough..... Then again it IS almost 11 years old, and what fun is looking the same as everyone else?

I'm trying hard to build the rubi without going beyond it's capabilties I can't afford a spendy build either.. so putting a ton of money into a d60/9"/10.5 or 9.5sf combo isn't an option even tho I have em.

here's a peak at my personal collection at the house..
