Huge tires going on this weekend 2.25" lift
I was planning on putting 35" tires on my ride, I backed off just a little when I found Nitto makes a nice AT in a size that would fit nice, well kinda. 285/75 R17 comes out to what the say is 33.8x. Not going to clear the ball joint with the factory rims so I ordered a set of proComps to fit the off spacing. Tonight I am going to pull it in the shop after it cools down, 90 some Deg outside. I removed the plastic wheel wells and fender flairs so far, next I have to cut a cheese wedge out of the back part of the wheel well as the tire will hit this when turned and a bump is hit. Lucky part is I thought the sheet mettle you see is the same you step on in the cab. It's not, there is a unframe that runs along the side of the jeep up to this point and will be Reinforced with steel after I cut the cheese wedge out. The piece of mettle with the AC and heater lines connect to has an air gap between it and the floor boards. here are some pics and more when it is done and the 34"s are on this weekend.
The pic tire compare is a cherokee with 35"s and if you are wondering, yes that is a SRT8 Grand Cherokee in the back.
