yep no problem. A 6 or 6.5 would most likely clear with no trimming i think.

Just cut them out... but it wasn't due to tire size, it was due to the axle being pushed back 5 inches.

yeah a long arm is mostly recommended. Rough country and Rustys make a 6.5 inch. I think rubicon express does too. RE is just more expensive.
