BLUF - No, but yes.
A little reading on this forum will give you the answer. A lot of different answers. Maybe one you want. Probably a few you don't want.

I ran mine on my 2023 JTR for about a week. I did have to add 3 washers to each steering stop and do a little trimming of the fender liners. I still had a really slight rub at full lock, but it was pretty minimal.

That being said, I wouldn’t have taken it off road, there really wasn’t much room if you had your wheels turned at all and flexed.

I ended up putting on a BDS 2” lift with Fox shocks to get something that is pretty close to the factory flex back on all four corners.

2 Much info on here already on that topic and as a newbie user you should get familiar with the site rather than ask a question that has shit kicked out of it many times over , and trust me nobody wants to see 50 pages of opinions from a 1st time posters question about weather you can just throw 37's on and live happily ever after .

Wow thanks for the welcome to the forum. Maybe you should change your name from gladtohave. Sorry for disturbing you Mr gladtohave.

As has already been answered, no need to lift if you just want to wear the shoes; but if you want to take a walk in the woods with them you will need to lift.

For perspective, here's my 2020 JTR with 37's and a 2.5" lift. Plenty of room to "get some" with 2.5" lift:

It did come across a touch agressive. But most importantly, we're a discussion forum, why are we opposed to discussion? Sure it's the same question asked a dozen times, but why is a new user any less entitled to ask the questions that someone else was entitled to ask before.

It's not like the search feature for this site is stellar. And if each question was only allowed to be asked once, this would be a quiet place.

to @Rjfromichigan, here's a beautiful chart i made all by myself:

I’ll tell you I personally searched a ton before making my purchase, but still wasn’t confident. It seems like there are a lot of permutations of JT specs, wheel specs, tire size/widths, etc. that make getting an exact answer a challenge.

The mods I have done were not a need, it's all about want.

For other trims, assuming a disconnected front sway bar, does the offroad number increase if you swap higher fenders but don't lift?

With 3.73 gears I'm thinking about 34's and no lift if possible.
