Needs bigger tires. I am thinking 30x9.5, but I wanted to ask one last time to anyone on here with the same or very similar setup running 31x10.5 whether their tires rub at full turn and/or full flex with sway bars disconnected. I don't want to trim anything but I don't wanna rub either. Ever.
You can run virtually any tire size on virtually any amount of lift with no rubbing, when proper bumpstop setup is used. Get the 31s. If they rub, get extended bumpstops to keep the tires away from the body.

A bit of rubbing turning in full-lock. No issue with trim touching.
Aiming to swap to 15" Black Rock D rims with -6 offset to eliminate rub and have a better stance

Default Love this look

Does anybody know who's XJ this is? I love the look and I'm trying to get some lift/tire information on it. If anyone knows or has an idea of what set up this is I would love to know.

Do you really think they're only 31's? It looks like his fenders are cut so I assumed they were bigger. That is a great starting point though, thank you!
