Just posting this here instead of emailing you as I am sure there are some others who would like to hear the info..... <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

I was wondering what setup you ran to fit 36's, I think it was a Tera 4" lift? plus 1" BL and the normal short CA's with a bellyup.....

Mainly I was curious as to how much you had to cut the wheel arches and where....top, leading edge or trailing edge?

The reason I ask is I have found some cheap 36" TSL SX's and have a 3.5" lift, normal length CA's and 2" body lift, but will add some spacers and trim where needed.

Anyone else can answer as well.

thanks in advance

Rob ran 35's before he did all the tube work. I know he has a 4" Tera lift, 1" body lift, and I believe they're 1 3/4" spacers. He then jumped to 38's with no additional lift, only the cutting/tubing, then immediately went to 39.5's. Now he's talking of 60's and 42's! I told him just go to 44's and get it over with <IMG SRC="smilies/laughing.gif" border="0">
I think I'm gonna go 36's in the spring. I have the RE 4.5, and 1" body, and am hoping a small spacer will be enough to get them in there with no rubbing problems..
He might not respond for awhile because he's leaving for Big Dogs tomorrow in Virginia.

Jeepster, do you know if he has 31 or35 spline shafts for his rear 9"? And has he ever broken them? Also what type of gearing is he running to turn 39's? Diffs, T-case, tranny?
Thanks, Phil

Not sure about the splines or whether he's broken the rear, but he boogered up the front 9 recently in Wellsville. Not from the wheeling, but under extreme (sorry Lance <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0"> ) winching loads and a wedged front tire. 4.56 gears, stock tranny and T-case with Tera Low. That's all I know. If you need more info, bring this back to top early next week, I'm sure he'd get back to you <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

You might have to post this in general 4x4, I don't know if he checks in here that often. He is back from Gore.

why does every one add coil spacers to try to clear bigger tires? this doesnt give you any more clearance when the tire is compressed which is all your worried about. I get really confused by all these jeep guys adding coil spacers to clear bigger tires and not mentioning extended bumpstops. That would be like me adding just longer shackles to my truck and expecting bigger tires not to rub at full stuff

i have run and currently am running, 4 inch tera, 1.25 spacers, 1 inch body, and the belly up.


in the front i removed the entire inner and outter fenders, the hood was cut roughly 4 inches higher, and that is where my new fenders are....


in the rear it is important to remember that under compression the tire moves backwards so more cuttin should occur to the rear... when you remove the flares and look into this you will see that there isnt much to cut. unless you start making major mods as i did. at the top of the rear fender so much material was cut that you could see the interior of the jeep... the inner wheel wells were cut, raised to meet the new outer line and then welded back together.

with the 39.5 i am rubbing in the rear, only after i have maxed a 22 degree ramp by about 2 foot, so i will be hackin the rear bumper and cuttin some more body and retube in the rear soon. i am holdin on till i decide what im doin with my rear suspension but i will be goin to 6 or 8 inch coils (if not coil overs) in order to fit 42 inch tires..
(need that 60 joint up front first too)

31 spline front and rear.....
