I know others have mentioned it, but before you get it out on a trail start flexing it out little by little to see what you are going to bump or rub on you you can take care of it before disaster. You never want to rub a hole in a tire, and definitely not on a trail.

Maybe I missed it, but what all did you do, did you use wheel spacers, or did you just trim the pinch seam and the fenders?
Thanks and yes I'm going to flex it out a bit today and see if it rubs.

fenders trimmed and I got on 1.5" even wheel spacers. Today I'm going to cut the pinch seam and continue my quest on finding which bb I want. I figure they are all the same just depends what they come with. Thinking i just need coil spacers shock adapters and bumpstops

Shock adapters aren't worth the trouble. Teraflex and BDS both offer a very inexpensive shock that works great

My 35" KM2s measure at 33.75" installed. The other day I hit a dip at an intersection at 35 and the right rear kissed the plastic cap on the Rubicon rock slider. The slider is flush with the pinch seam. A tire that's closer to 35 will hit the seam for sure.

So I'll be trimming the slider/seam while at work today. I should have done it before getting the tires last month.

Removed the e disco, pm if interested in buying. Its going on eBay shortly.

Also removed the bumper skid, took the plasma cutter to the crash bar and frame brackets, and netted the equivalent of a damn near 6" lift

Scored a set of American Eagle wheels that just came out. Also installed diablo InTune last night. Can't disable TPMS light which sucks.

87 octane tune is slick. Def a nice throttle response.
