    Just had my 91 Wrangler fitted with Meyers st-7. Have 31in. tires, when blade is raised tires occasionaly rub fender flares. Is anyone running the same setup, and what do you suggest?

    Thanks Rich

    You got a couple of options. Go back to a smaller tire or beef up the suspension.And add some weight to the back, about 400 pounds.

    31s are a tight fit for a YJ without the plow hanging out there. I would either get an add a leaf kit or go to 30" tires. An add a leaf will cost you about $100 and will increase your spring rate plus give you about 2" of lift.
    Out of curiosity, Im getting ready to turn my 95 Yj into a plow truck and Im deciding what plow to get. Can you give some specifics about your Jeep and plow setup?
