    Figure a stock front end FJ60.

    Has anyone stuffed a set of 35's in their rig without lifting it?

    Where do the tires rub?

    I do have some 2.5" shackles and the fenders have been cut quite a bit.

    I am just wondering if I can get away with flat towing with a set of 35's without too much rubbage.

    They rub on the front of the inner fenders when the shackle swings forward. I unbolted the front inner fender and cut the lip that is behind it then tacked the inner fender back on. They also rub on the inside of the rear wheel wells but there isn't a whole lot you can do there unless you cut it all out, but it doesnt do much to the tire.

    rear is in a Spring over config.

    The front is not going to be. Most likely a 2.5 or 4" SU config..
