    Are you happy with the steering upgrade you have? I want to go with something beefier but you either haft the cut the sway bar brackets, can’t use aftermarket diff cover, have 3.75 backspacing, ream out everything which a lot don’t like. Not sure what to go with!!!!

    Hi, was was looking at some old posts about cad files for xj bumpers. You mentioned you might have some 2D ones? Was wondering if you'd be willing to share them. Thanks!

    Nope not when it was stock. I had something like an 1.5" lift. Even after trimming it still rubbed very bad. This is mostly due to the 3.75 backspacing on my wheels. We just put 31s on my buddies xj with stock wheels. Going to trim the flares soon and see what it does. For sure you need to trim the front flares. Rears might be fine. If you get the flat flares like me, all rubbing issues will be gone. But to answer your question, running 31s on both Jeeps with 15" wheels. I am at a 4" lift and my buddy is at 1.5". Let me know if you need any pictures.
