    My bad. I remember looking at those. One of the few with any positive offset, but still over an inch out from stock. I think a +17 wheel would be perfect for looks and top fender clearance.

    Have you had any issues with the 37’s rubbing or hitting the inner fender on the back at stock height?

    Very nice! The BFG are undersized and I hate them. I wonder if this would be sufficient for Ridge Grapplers with Icon UCA Fox factory shocks and Rotiform wheels.


    Thanks for the info! Need to find a welder:)

    I have Venomrex 602’s which are +12. I wonder if I could get away with clearing the fenders both front and rear

    0 rubbing, not quite stock height in the front, 1.5" collars.

    I think the front fenders you would be good especially if your were lifting the front more and with UCA's. The rear fenders you may have to do a similar modification to the lower front and rear bedside flair. I was prepared to do this but after testing my wheel tire choice I determined I had enough clearance. It wouldn't be as hard as the front fender mod just more work. Or you could adjust the bump stops to remove some up travel. The photos below are after suspension mods but before fender mods. I was trying to decide how much and where I was cutting.

    Rear at full bump straight on like landing or G out. Plenty of clearance

    Full bump offset like rock crawling, pretty tight.

    Full droop you can see how I have my bump stops adjusted.
