    37's rubbing right control arm

    Just put on milestar patagonia 37x12.50r17 on the stock rubicon wheels with a 2" mopar lift. In the front it only rubs the right control arm while making right hand turns at full lock. When turning left I do not rub at all.

    I'm trying to avoid wheel spacers at the moment because I would prefer for the tires to not stick out past the fenders.

    Can I get away with adjusting the steering stop?

    Do I do this on both wheels or just one? Is the placement of the bolts the same as a jk, meaning can I follow a writeup/video that was done on a jk? I've been searching, but haven't found anything on how to do it on a JL.

    If it's anything like the JK, the bolts are on the knuckles. Yes you can adjust just one side. But you'll have reduced turning radius in that direction.

    Thanks, and understood about the turning radius. Is this a good picture (from an unnamed source,lol) to use for someone to point out exactly which bolt I'm supposed adjust? There are 3 grouped close together on the back. Is it the bottom bolt, the one that's a little longer?20180205120329-debf2807.jpeg

    The steering stop bolt is the one in the picture that is not threaded in all the way. Adjusting it out will give you less turning radius.

    The steering stop bolt is the one on the bottom that isnít threaded in all the way. Adjusting it out will limit the steering.

    Two 3/8" washers did the trick for me. No more rubbing and I don't feel much of a difference in right hand turning radius.

    It doesn't usually take much to get the job done.
