JP article-How to fit 35's

Newbie here, but not to Jeeping. Has anyone read this article and want to respond to how to squeeze them in.

We have an 08 X unlimited. Being that I am from Ohio and only get offroad about 4 times per year, 2-3 times at Jamborees and 1-2 times locally I am trying to be budget minded, but not cheap.

Thoughts on topic appreciated.

teraflex 2.5 bb or if you don't mind the small extra price, which i'd say is very worth it, get it with coils and shocks.

or get a leveling kit and trim your flares for a really budget friendly way to fit 35's.

i've got the teraflex full 2.5" lift with their front adj lower control arms and a jks front adj trackbar and i love it.

Some things that article didn't go into was the pinch seem and how much backspacing you need but I think it could be done with what the article said.

X2 on this advice. That is a great lift to start with. And it may be all that you ever need depending on what type of wheeling you do in the future. And the price is right. Also check Rock Krawler and Polly. They have really good lifts in this range.

08 2Door Red Rubicon. Rock Krawler 5.5 Longarm Coilover, Polly rear Coilovers. AEV hood & wheels, 37"KM2s, JE Reel 1350 shafts, 5.38 Yukon gears, Superior axles, Shrockworks stubby, Fab Fours rear, sPod, Rebel Offroad brakes, Warn winch and lots more.

Does anyone know if 35's will fit on standard aluminum rims?

Yup. You just need to get some wheel spacers. Go with a name brand, not one of the many knock-offs out there. SpiderTrax makes a hub-centric spacer out of 6061 billet aluminun. It is the gold star that everyone else tries to imitate.

If you're gonna be fucking weird, own it.
