3" lift is the general consensus to clear 35's and not rub.

It can be done stock....just don't go off-road til your lift comes in!! I've been running 35's on mine for about 2 months now and still haven't got my friggin lift yet (not by choice of course)

I am running 35's with 2.5" and it is pretty good. I do not rub at all (now that stock bumper has been replaced with a stubby). As always, it is all about bumpstops to not rub.

If you are only offroad sometimes 2.5" is enough. I will be going to 3" or 3.5" to be more comfortable but still maintain a decent COG.

I'm running 35's with 3" lift with no problems at all, except for having to replace the driveshafts. Congrats on your new Jeep.

Not sure if you have made a decision yet but we have gotten alot of positive feedback on our stuff. Its worth a look if you haven't seen it yet.

JK Synergy Stage II System

Not the cheapest but addresses all the issues correctly when lifting the JK.
