I'd like to put Dynamat Extreme sound deadening behind the wheel well liners to cut down on the much louder tires.)
Getting wider wheels may be pushing it with the ball joint knuckle. Do you plan to deflate the tires ever for off road traction? You also have to take that into consideration as that makes the tires wider too (although much more-so on the bottom where the weight is). I use 1" spacers all around. If you get 1.25" spacers or great I think you may be ok. I didn't want to get too large of a spacer with the diesel as I have it pretty heavy and the further out you go the more stress on the wheel bearings.
So sounds like in daily use and off-road use at lifted heights you basically have no issues. Are you still able to use the access height?
Need to make sure the dog can still jump in and out.
I would certainly deflate some when venturing off the beaten path. Wouldn't think that would cause a greater issue with ball joint clearance up top. Good to know that you are running a stock/oem/mopar 7.5" wheel with a 1" spacer to clear. I was wondering if a spacer would be necessary. Seemed like it would. While I like your wheels I will just have to continue to search for a set of Sahara take-offs and do the same spacer set-up.
