Re: clearing 31x10.50x15 tires
Well, I am running the 32x9.5's off-road, with the 2" backspacing in the front only, backspacing won't help the rear. The 31's are just my street tires (the ones in the pic).
No, there are no bumpstops on it, never came with any. I didn't install the lift, someone else put it on before I bought it. Rather than install bumpstops and limit what little flex I have now, I'm going to modify the body to accept the tires better. I'm not worried about warping springs as this is as stiff as a board. Just ask Max, he was complaining about it the whole day, and even rode with CharlyA to help his back. He claimed he was taking pictures, but I know better. It rides awesome down the road, but that's not why I bought it. I'm going to cut out the wheelwells and move them up about 2"-4" and see how that works. I think the 32's are a little large for the current setup, but they're awesome tires and I like the clearance. With the YJ springs I'll end up putting on bumpstops, and fine tuning that suspension more, with this one I just want to wheel it.
