Starting a build thread for my sport S! My goal was to get to a similar level of a Rubicon without spending as much money (lol).

Will get more pictures soon!

Sweet looking JT man. I just ordered some 38" patagonias for my sport with a 3.5" lift and I couldn't figure out why your 3.5" lift was so tall on 38s and then I realized you said you have rubicon fenders lol.

Thanks! and yeah 3.5 on 38s is a great look, you're going to love it. I do have some rubbing on the fender liners at full turn so I'd be careful with the sport fenders. Guess it depends on your offset and width

Looks great!! I see you are in Mass also, any concerns for getting a sticker for the wheel offset?

Thanks! I'm not overly worried about it. In the off chance they say something my backup plan would be to throw on smaller tires or grab some rubber garage door seal and stick it on so it extends out far enough haha.

That's what I've been thinking about since I ordered them. I have 17x9 with a -12mm and the 38 Pats 13.5 wide. What kind of time do you have ?
