I get tired of all the self appointed search police. If you've got a question, ask it. Maybe someone will come along with an answer.
Yes, you can run 35s on a stock Hard Rock, or in my case a Rubicon Recon, which is pretty much the same thing. You don't need a leveling kit, and you don't need bump stop extensions. You do need to change the fender flares and run 1 1/2" wheel spacers. Here's my Rubicon Recon with 35s and no lift. It drives better than any lifted Jeep I've ever owned, and no tire rub.
