    Any things possible. Depends on your use. Why not buy the tires and wait to install if it’s that good of a deal.

    You will definitely need to trim your fenders, front bumper (if full width), and get aftermarket wheels or wheel spacers but it is possible.

    37 inch tires on 2 inch lift

    I have evo enforcer 3” lift with puck spacers to bring it closer to 3.5”. With 3.5” backspacing, my 37x12.5 Cooper stts still slightly rub frame at full turn . Trimmed fenders and had to clearance back wheel well a bit . Also needed to trim rubicon rock rails by 2” . Also cut full width bumper and turned to a mid width .. outside was hitting tire on turn .

    2” lift probably better suited for 35s

    A few people mentioned front clearance but the rear will also be an issue with 37s depending on the brand and the width of them. My Cooper 37x13.5s didn't fit between the Rubi rails and the stock rear bumper on about 2.5-3" of lift, couldn't even mount them as you can see in the pic. Lots of trimming on the rear front side pinch seam to include a few inches off the Rubi rails and removed the stock rear bumper all together. (Idk if you still have to stock Rubi rails and rear bumper but something to watch for)

    Even 4.88s leaves me wanting 5.13s, don't know how I tolerated 4.10s on 37s on my old 08JKUR

    This discussion is why I’ve stayed with 35’s on a 2.5” lift.

    I'm having the same debate right now. I'm on 2.5" lift and just had 4.56 gears installed with the intent of going to 35s but started second guessing myself. Glad I found this because it answered a bunch of questions for me.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
