New kicks! Nitto Ridge Grappler 315/70R17. Ride is so much better than the Falken MTs.

Any lift? When my Falkens need replaced I’m thinking of going this route but my Rubi is standard. No lift.

This weekend i went and found some 37” tires and at a great deal! So i went and picked them up. But i finally made it to the 37” tire gang!! I have a Sport S and it is not the Max tow so it has 3:73 gears and it has a AEV 2” spacer lift and i chopped the front and rear fenders and it fits the 37s very well no rubbing anywhere. Also i had a little wheeling trip this last weekend and got to test them out! Absolutely loving the 37” tires!

Your build looks great! Did you use a kit for that fender chop, or what all went into it? I'd love to do that at some point.

2020 Bright White Jeep Gladiator Sport S on a 2in AEV spacer lift and 35 in tires
How is the on and off road driving with the 3.73s and 37s? Not many people run this way. Interested in your experience.
It still has quite i bit of power. With my AEV lift i got the AEV procal which you measure your tire and you type it in using the audio equalizer thing and it changes shift point and makes it nice and gets some power back. I was driving it around and i am still seeing 8th gear which i like and I’m getting about anywhere from 15.5-16.5 mpg with that and i do really like it a lot. I wouldn’t say you need to regear from 3:73 to 4:10s
Because it’s not a massive fall so if you went 37s i would just say with 3:73 unless you wanna regear. In the future i might regear but for the time being i don’t have any issues.

I got the quake led fender chop for the sport. They make them for the rubicon and for the sport now which i had the two piece fender on mine which is considered a Sahara fender and i just took my fender apart and put the chop on and it’s super sturdy and it is very bright! I love my fender chop very much and quake is a great brand for it too. And for the rear fender chop it just pulls apart as well like the front and i did that before i did the front. And i have no complaints about doing it at all i love the look of the all white on mine. Becaus it used to be the white fender with the bus k lower part so now it’s all white and i just like the look of it. And if you need help with the chop or have questions about it you are welcome to ask me i also figured out away to keep the stock inner fenders.

The only thing I have going right now is a 1.5 inch Teraflex level kit in the front. I haven't got around to installing the rear 3/4" spacers yet.

Looks awesome, how do you like the AEV spacer?
