So maybe people will stop asking about it . lol
Mine(37s) with a Mopar 2” lift and 1” spacer. The BFG K02s are small 37s, they measure about 35.6”.
The black one has Nitto G2s 35s with a 1” spacer.
Both on 17” Fuel Rebel wheels.

It’s interesting that on these the 37’s seem to bend light and make the whole Jeep look bigger... put same tires on a TJ, and the Jeep looks small... but put them on the JT, and the whole thing grows!

Looks like I know what 8 want to do with my JTR now....throw some axel extenders on there, slam it to the ground and put some 12"tires on it will a ground effects kit!:CWL::CWL:.
Love the look of your JT, I think the 2" Mopar lift is absolutely the way to go and with 37's it just completes the look. Nice rig!

The camera is closer to the truck on the left, so, the difference in size will be exaggerated.
Exactly, look at the size of the windows relative to one another. This image is not a good comparison.

Week#2 of my 2021 Gladiator Rubicon being built. Any rough estimate 4.88 regearing, tires and best lift. Do I need to reinforce the axle, brakes heavy duty enough? What about u joint angle?

You guys are correct, I should have posted this photo too. I couldn’t step back far enough to get it straight on.

Yup, still like the Mopar 2" lift with 37's and a 1" spacer.

If you don't tow, and don't do any rock crawling, and don't drive a lot of steep hills, then 37s with factory gearing should be acceptable. Based on my experience with 35s on a JK, I found that our steep hills, towing, and rock crawling did need 4.88s.

37s on max tow here. Regearing is not necessary (havent towed heavy yet). Did fine running in mud that submerged the tires completely (FL). You will notice "decrease in power", but the motor/trans handles it well, so long as u recalibrate the speedo.

The BFGs are not true 37s. They're a 36 on a good day if you overinflate them tremendously. Just sayin.

I said in the original post that they measured in at 35.6” which is why I went with them... didn’t want the full 37” tire
