Stuffing 37" BFGoodrich Tires on a Stock Jeep Wrangler JK - NO LIFT (yet)
In this video you will see the struggles as I try to get a set of 37" BF Goodrich Mud Terrain KM2 tires to fit on a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon or JKU. The idea behind such an odd approach to upgrading an off road rig is to start at the foundation and work my way up. I want to keep the center of gravity on the vehicle as low as possible and the main focus of the build is to fit the awesome 37 inch BFG KM2's. Those have been my favorite tires for as long as I can remember and are one of the most "Go To" tires in the off road industry. So, with a set of G2 1.5" spacers, I get the Jeep on jack stands, pull the old rims and tires off, have the 37's mounted up and commit to drive the Jeep at the end of the day! The biggest problem happens at the rear of the vehicle. The rocker panel guard is too long and must be removed and modified before it can be reinstalled. Then the bottom of the body at the leading edge of the rear wheel well needs to be trimmed, sealed and spray painted. I show the basic steps I took to accomplish this task. So the Jeep now sits on the 37" Mud Terrain tires but there is lots to do. The fenders will need to get modified for more clearance and the rear tire mount will have to be upgraded as well to handle the much larger tire. It was a great one day project and I'm thrilled to have it done. Next up will be G2 gears and chromoly axle upgrades. Then fenders, rear bumper and some off roading of course!
