    What's the largest size tire you can fit with a 2½" lift? I've got 35's right now but I'm wondering if I can get 37's on my JK. Anyone know?

    Welcome! Flat fenders will go a long way to make it all fit for the street.

    Welcome to the boards RWB333.

    Isn't it funny how guys always want our stuff bigger. (Leave it alone JMM). When I bought my JK, I told myself I was only going to install a 2 inch lift with 33s. Which I did. Less than a year. I want 35s and jump up to a 3 1/2 inch lift. Jeepers are always looking to upgrade.

    If you take your fender flares off you can run 37s. To be legal you will need to get aftermarket flat or tube fender flares.

    Here is my friends Jeep 40s with 2.5in lift. This takes a little more work, but he can run any trail you put him on.

    those look like MCE fender flares. The most expensive plastic in all the land!
