Did you try squeezing the spare underneath?

For now it is just the stock spare. I am still debating on what to do there. In the 23+ years I have been doing this I have never been in a situation where I needed a full size spare and could not plug/patch a damaged tire. So I am thinking of leaving the stock 33" tire under there and just leaving it how it is or maybe getting a rear bumper with a tire carrier and going that route. I figure the next few months I will make a decision.

Model Y Performance. Diesel JT hopefully soon
Thanks for the reply. You’re running the same size lift, wheels and tires I want to run (except I want 4.5 - 5” of backspacing).
Same color Jeep too I’m just waiting for the diesel.


do you have any pics of the wheel well clearances? I’d like to get away with not splitting the fenders

also do you happen to know how tall the tires are when mounted on the Jeep?

Hey! Sorry for the late response. I was going to wait for the diesel, but changed my mind due to the amount that the jeep will sit without running.

I will get some pictures of the wheel clearances for you. going with a 4.5 lift you will be fine without modifying the fenders though.

Ok! Gears are completed, also got the Rock sliders on along with the front bumper, lights, winch, superchip, and trax on top of the decked unit installed today. Making progress, just wish the rest of the lift parts would get here so I can get the lift on! Here are some progress pics.

did you have to grind the frame away to get the winch to fit? I just installed the same bumper and the Warn Platinum 12-s winch won't fit. 10 and 12 claim to be the same size too.
