I think the picture is a little deceiving on how far they are in the wheel well.

Also all 13' have the pinch seem already trimmed.


If it's not supposed to move and does use duct tape.
If it's supposed to move and doesn't use WD40

You have the Mopar Enhanced Rock Slider. I had one on my 2 door rubi (upgrade) and one on my COD. You can take off a inch with no problem, and that should do you fine. Cut the pinch seam underneath from spot weld to spot weld and paint. It'll get covered by the rock rail. Cut the rock rail strait down so you can still use the plastic cap.

Give Rock Krawler a call. They have a nice kit that shifts the axle back.

They come stock like that. My stock rubi rails where only about 2" from the edge of my 35's before I cut them back.

Would you actually measure how far back you want the axle and do a little trig, or is there just a lenth associated with a size spring. For ex I have the AEV 3.5 springs and my rear CAs are stock. Will they know how long the CA will have to be to put it back in position or will I have to measure how far it moved forward then calculate?

Math and cycling the suspension minus the springs to make sure the tires are centered in the fender with no rub at full stuff. Are you against trimming the sliders? It's cheaper than upper and lower control arms. Plus you create a couple issues with extending wheel base such as spring bow.

I have already cut pinch seams and rubi rockers and the tire stuffs with no rubbing. I just figured when it was moved forward with the taller springs it was causing spring bow and I wanted to move it back to stock position.
